Tring School operates a biometric finger recognition system for our school meal service.
Credit can be added to your child's account using our secure ParentPay online payment facility which guarantees that money paid is for canteen use 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 scan 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 student places their finger on the scanner.
Full fingerprint images are not stored and a usable fingerprint image cannot be generated (reversed engineered) from the template/pattern.
If you have any queries please contact the Finance Office firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to help answer any questions including providing your password to access your ParentPay online payment account.
