Online Payments

The school operates a system of cashless catering. It means that students do not have to bring money to school and helps minimise queues at the tills in our popular canteen. You can create and amend your account by clicking on the red button below.  Use the same link to top-up payments, pay for music lessons and trips.

This system eliminates the need for students to carry cash throughout the day, whilst ensuring that the money you provide for your child’s meal is actually spent on food. Please note that no cash will be accepted at the tills. The cashless system is also biometric so there is no need for students to carry a card. The system will recognise the thumb of your child (stored as a series of numbers) at the tills.

A daily ‘spend limit’ of £5 is automatically programmed into the system. This can be increased or decreased by contacting the Finance Office.

Once you have set up an account, payments can also be made for residential trips and music lessons. Other methods of paymenrs include dropping in a cheque or cash to the school’s Finance Office. Cheques should be made payable to The Arnewood School with the student’s name and tutor group on the reverse.

For full information on using the online payment system please refer to the help booklets below.
