Cashless Catering

Withernsea High School operates a Cashless Catering system.

The system has removed the use of cash from the purchasing process, leading to a more efficient service in our canteen. Funds can be deposited by parents/carers quickly and conveniently online through ParentPay or by students themselves using cash at one of two deposit machines located in school.

Students pay for their meals at the till using either biometric authentication (thumb print) or a PIN number to access funds that have been pre‐paid in to their account.

The system is also ‘Free School Meals’ friendly.

Documents (please click the links below to view/download).
Hard copies are also available from the school office.

To pay for meals at the tills, students can use a thumb print algorithm (biometrics). This form grants the school permission to collect this information.

Meal Deal

Our £2.70 meal deal remains the most popular and cost-effective option at lunchtime. This guarantees students either:

- a sandwich OR hot meal, plus a drink

- a sandwich OR hot meal, plus a dessert.

Occasionally, where the pricing of individual items in a chosen combination works out cheaper than the cost of the meal deal, the student will always pay the lower price.

Students opting for the 'meal and dessert' option have access to water fountains where they can top up their drinks bottles to ensure they stay hydrated.



Menu rota

The rota system has been temporarily suspended due to the Covid pandemic. The above menu will run each week until further notice.
