Cashless Catering for New Students

Information regarding cashless catering arrangements for next academic year.

Castle Rock provides a "cashless catering" system, which eliminates the need for your child to bring cash into school to purchase food and drinks from our diner.

Parents of new Year 7 students starting on Thursday 29th August will receive an email one week before the start of term, containing instructions on how to register for our cashless catering system. Registration is quick and easy and you will be able to add money onto your child's account straight away, through the app or web portal. There will be support available from the school if you experience technical difficulties of any kind.

Students are also required to register for cashless catering so that they can make purchases - we use a biometric system for this and new Year 7 students were taken through the registration process during their induction days (where parental permission had been given).

If for any reason you cannot register for the cashless catering system, your child will still be able to use the school diner by either;

  • Bringing in cash and handing it into the school office, where we will credit your child's account.
  • Bringing in cash and paying it into their account at one of the onsite revaluation units.

Children who qualify for Free School Meals will have their accounts credited automatically on a daily basis.
