On joining Belvidere, each of our students has their fingerprint registered. When they want to buy food in our dining hall, students simply place their finger on a scanner at the point of sale; a display shows the server the student's name, class and current cash balance held within the system.
Fingerprints are used to recognise each individual student, hold cash balances, record cash spent and details of what has been purchased..
Belvidere is a cashless school and we use ParentPay as the online platform for parents/carers to add to their child’s current meals balance. Parents can see their child’s current meal balance at any time by logging on to ParentPay where it is displayed on the home screen.
From September 2020 we are unable to accept cash in school so all payments must be through ParentPay.
