Cashless Catering

At The Bulwell Academy, we run a cashless system where students are recognised by their fingerprint. The student simply places their finger on a scanner at the point of sale; a display will show the server the student's name and current cash balance. The selected food items are entered on the system from an itemised keyboard while the amount spent and the new cash balance will show on the display.   

Money can be added to a student's lunch account in four ways:

  • Using our online payment system, ParentPay
  • Topping up in a local store using a PayPoint card
  • By cheque made payable to The Bulwell Academy (cheques can be handed into Student Reception)
  • By cash, using the machines in the restaurant.

You can view your child's lunch account online using ParentPay(even if you don't pay for your child's meals online).

For more information about ParentPay and PayPoint, please click here or contact the School Office.

If you have a query about your child's account, please do not hesitate to contact the School Office.
