Rudheath Senior Academy operates a cashless catering system. All students for whom we have received parental permission via the completed data collection forms will have a biometric scan of their finger taken on their first day in school, or during the Year 7 induction week. Students for whom no parental consent has been received will be able to give their name at the food service till point so payment can be made.
The finger scan allows students to purchase food and drinks from our canteen at breakfast, break and lunch time, subject to funds available on their account. Accounts can be topped up either by using the online payments system, ParentPay. Students who are in receipt of free school meals have their account credited daily with the current allowance.
