Cashless Catering System coming to Orchards

Dear Parent/Carer

A letter has been sent home with your child advising the following:

The costs of introducing a cashless system for purchasing items from the canteen has always been considered too high when money could be spent on education. However, our new caterers have offered to introduce the system at no expense to the school so we are keen to take advantage of this offer.

This will reduce the need for any child to carry cash and those on free school meals will have their allocation automatically added making it quicker for students to purchase food and get on with enjoying their break time.

Students will be registered for this system on Thursday 5th November 2020 but only if the parental consent form on the attached leaflet has been returned to school.

Please note that students will remain in their bubbles for this process and sanitiser will be used between registering each child.
