Sunbury Manor School is able to take online payments for school meals, trips and resources.
All staff and students must use their biometric thumb print to access the cashless catering facility, as cash is not accepted in the school canteens. For convenience, parents can top up their child’s account using the online payment facility provided by WisePay. For parents who do not have the facility to top up their child’s catering account online, there are two ‘cash loaders’ in the school for students to credit their account. These are situated in the stairwell of the main building, and step-by-step instructions are provided at each machine.
WisePay is very easy to use and gives parents the freedom to make payments at their convenience, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This means parents no longer have to send cash into school on a daily basis. WisePay accepts all major credit cards and debits cards. All card payments are secure and adhere to the highest level of compliance under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.
