If consent is provided your child will be able to use this method when paying for their lunches. Please see our frequently asked questions and flyer for more information.

Do you use the Auto Top up facility available on your account?
Auto top-up assists parents and carers in ensuring their child’s school meal balance is always in credit. To use the Auto Top up facility you need to set up ‘Bank Transfer’ first. Once set up Auto top up will check your child’s balance daily. If your associated balance has fallen below the level set by you, a top up payment will be debited from your bank account to top up the balance. (The payment amount is set by you)
Set up ‘Bank Transfer’
Here in the catering department at Alsager School we are always looking for ways to improve the well-being of your child as well as offering value for money and convenience each and every day. Since, we introduced the cashless system for school meals, there has been an increase in the number of students taking a free school meal in years 7 and 8. However, you can apply whatever year your child is in.
