Derbyshire school brings in cashless catering
30 Dec 2011

school in Derbyshire is bringing in cashless catering in order to make mealtimes more streamlined.

According to the Burton Mail, John Port School in Etwall is one of the biggest in the county and is to replace cash at its tills with eMoney next term.

Parents will be able to pay for midday meals and school trips online, or take money to the office to load up the contactless smart cards in person.

In addition, headteacher Wendy Sharp said mums and dads will be able to register for a text messaging service that allows them to receive essential information from the school.

"We hope the Wisepay system makes things easier for parents and carers, making payments straightforward and providing timely and useful information," Ms Sharp added.

Earlier this week, the Department for Education said it intends to bring in price promotions on school dinners in order to increase uptake.
