At Oathall we use a cashless payment system for buying school meals and refreshments in the canteen. During the pandemic, we stopped using biometric fingerprint technology and used account cards instead. However, we prefer students to use biometric finger recognition technology to access their account as it is far more efficient and secure. Students who started at Oathall between March 2020 and the current time have not had their fingerprints scanned to access their canteen accounts biometrically.

We have now reinstated biometrics for other year groups and we would now like to register our students in Year 7 & Year 8 so they can use their fingerprints. To do this, we require parental consent.

If you are a parent of a student in Year 7 or Year 8, please complete the consent form indicating whether or not you would like your child’s fingerprint to be scanned and registered for biometric use in the canteen.

Further information can be found in the letter to parents sent earlier in the week.
