We are pleased to announce that Newcastle Academy is installing a cashless catering system in December 2017. The new system will allow us to continue with the development of the school meal service, and will provide us with a more efficient, faster and ultimately better quality of service.

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 (see FAQ’s) 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.

We will commence operating the system on 4th December and as such no cash will be accepted at the till points after this date.

The links below should answer any questions you may have, but if this is not the case a parent’s drop in information evening is to be held in the academy library on Thursday 2nd November from 3:30 – 4:30.
