I am sure you will appreciate that the current pandemic situation has forced us to review a number of processes within Turves Green Boys’ School. Most of you will be familiar with Parent Mail, our cashless system that enables you to pay remotely for trips, school meals and any other school related purchases. Parent Mail can be accessed securely via computer or smartphone.
From 7th June 2021, Turves Green Boys’ School will become a cashless school. This will mean that we will no longer accept cash for any school related purchase including school meals. All payments will be made remotely via our Parent Mail system, or alternatively via a PayPoint retailer using a barcode. The cash top up machines within school will be removed.
Most schools became cashless to reduce the health risk to pupils and staff, as well as for security reasons.
For the majority of you there will be no change as you actively use Parent Mail accounts. However; there are some parents/carers who have never actively used their child’s Parent Mail account. It is essential that parents/carers activate their child’s Parent Mail account otherwise they will be unable to purchase any food within school or attend any trips/events etc. Should you have any queries regarding this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your continued support.
