Cashless Biometric Payment

Cashless biometrics avoids the need to use cash at the till.

Each student has their own account which is linked to their individual fingerprint.

How does it work?

When a student places their finger on the scanner the software matches their fingerprint with the unique digital signature held in the database. The students account information is then displayed on the till or revaluation machine.

The software we use turns your student’s fingerprint into a mathematical algorithm and the image of the fingerprint is then discarded. The information stored cannot be used to recreate an image of the child’s fingerprint at any stage.

You can be reassured that the fingerprint images cannot be used by any other source for identification purposes.

When your child leaves school the data is deleted.

The benefits of this are:

  • Convenience of paying for meals
  • Discourages the misuse of spending dinner money in the shops on the way to school
  • Reduces issues associated with cash such as bullying, loss of money or theft
  • Queuing is reduced due to increased speed of service
  • Free school meal students use the same system therefore any possible stigma is removed
  • Reports of student purchases can be created

Free School Meal Entitlement

Students entitled to free school meals will have the value of a meal automatically credited to their account on a daily basis. Any free meal allowance left at the end of each day is wiped off and cannot be carried over to the next day.

Free school meal accounts can also have money added to them.

Student Information:

  • Your account must in credit before you can use it
  • No cash will be accepted at the tills

To add credit to your account:

Please ensure that your child’s account is credited for their first day in school.

One or more of these methods will be available in school:

Revaluation Machines:

These machines take cash in the form of coins and notes and will credit your account. (They do not accept 5p, 2p and 1p.)


Cash/Cheques must be in a sealed envelope with your name, tutor group and year on the front of the envelope. Please make cheques payable to: Derbyshire County Council, write your name and tutor group on the back.
