All students have lunch on site
Key Stage 3 lunchtime operates from 13:10 pm to 13:35 pm and Key Stage 4 operates from 13:35 to 14.00 pm. There are a wide variety of snacks and meals available. No students are allowed to leave the school premises during lunchtimes.
Cedar Mount operate a biometric cashless dining system, therefore no money will be taken by the canteen staff. Every student will have a digital scan of their fingerprint. The data is encrypted so it is not possible to steal or misuse your child’s fingerprint in any way by school or any authority, including the emergency services.
The new technology will help the whole dining experience to be both quicker and easier as students will not have a dinner card to remember, just their fingers!
A free school meal is worth £2.45 and will be credited to their lunch account automatically on a daily basis. Students may bring a packed lunch to school.
Certain data will be held on the system to enable accurate operation. This will include your child’s name, registration group, photograph, account balance and meal entitlement. This data will be handled under the guidelines of the Data Protection Act and only used by parties directly involved with the implementation of the system.
