Biometric System

Biometric System

Haverstock School has a cashless catering system.

This system incorporates the latest technology and eliminates the need for pupils to carry cash throughout the day thus reducing the risk of bullying. It is also biometric so there is no need for pupils to carry a card as the system will recognise the thumb of your child at the revaluation pay points and at the tills.

Any amount of money can be paid into a pupil’s account, and any money spent on food & drink will be deducted on a daily basis.

We have two payment options available to you, coin and note payments at the revaluation pay-points, and by cheque.

A daily ‘spend limit’ of £5 will be programmed into the system. This can be increased or decreased for an individual student by making a written request to the school finance office.

As per current legislation we will be operating an ‘Opt Out’ policy. If you choose not to have your child registered on the Biometric System a 4 digit PIN Code will be allocated. Please note that PIN Codes do not have the same level of security and it will be your child’s responsibility to remember the code and keep it secure at all times.
