Most schools in the London Borough of Croydon have their meals provided through a contract organised by the council. In order to enhance the sustainability of the meals service and help improve children’s health, the council embarked on a ground-breaking project to remove all dinner money from its schools and record the meal choices made by its pupils. Atwood Primary School was one of the first schools to go cashless in Croydon, taking payments online for all school items.
Theale Green’s Business Manager, Maria Tillett, joined the school four and a half years ago from a background in banking. Surprised by the amount of administrative time that was taken up by collecting money, Maria was certain that a cashless system was the best way forward. Providing a complete solution to the school’s administrative headache, ParentPay stood out as a clear winner in the school’s evaluation.

In order to enhance the sustainability of the meals service and help improve children’s health, the council embarked on a ground-breaking project to remove all dinner money from its schools and record the meal choices made by its pupils.
The project has increased the uptake of both paid and free school meals, reduced the time spent on dinner money administration by up to 80% and increased the safety of Croydon’s school children. Croydon Council won recognition with the prestigious e-Government National Award for Local e-Government excellence: Take-up & usage growth, in January 2009.
This white paper will help schools who are considering going fully cashless with online payment collection (or extending their use of an existing cashless system). It will help staff understand the benefits that can be realised and outline some key factors that schools should consider before procuring a fully cashless online income collection solution.
An income collection revolution is under way. UK schools are now taking significant steps towards becoming ‘fully cashless’ - removing the need for parents to send cash / cheques to school to pay for school dinners, clubs, trips, fees and more.
