2016 saw the introduction of a new £5 note. In March 2017, a new £1 coin will be introduced, followed in September 2017 by a new £10 note.
The revaluation (reval) machines in school where money is added on to food accounts do/will not support any of these new coins or notes. The school has therefore decided that we will no longer accept cash payments for food or trips, making the school an almost ‘cash-free’ environment by September 2017. It is recommended that you move to using ParentPay as soon as possible. Further information will follow, but please see this page for more information about ParentPay in school.
A letter will shortly be sent home, but you can see a version of it here.
