Tring School operates a biometric finger recognition system for our school meal service and our online payment facility includes the ability to credit canteen accounts.
It is possible to update accounts at a till point with cheques or cash, but we would like to encourage online payments with Wisepay as they are more secure and will guarantee monies are used for school meals as intended. The system uses finger scanning. This does not involve taking a finger print but a subset of unique features of the fingerprint are extracted from a scanned image and converted into a biometric template/pattern which is converted into a binary number. This is used and checked against the template generated each time a pupil places their finger on the scanner.
Full fingerprint images are not stored and a usable fingerprint image cannot be generated (reverse engineered) from the template/pattern.
If your child wishes to have their biometric information scanned or would like to add money to their account by cash or cheque they must go to the dining room between 8.30 - 9.00am any day providing the dining room is not being used for assemblies etc. Scanning and updating during break and lunch is slow and holds up the rest of the diners. Dining Hall Price List (September to October 2020).
If you have any queries please contact the Finance Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will be happy to help with any questions you may have including providing passwords for the internet payment facility.
