Canteen

Brookfield uses a Cashless System for its Catering Services. No cash can be accepted at the food counter ‘Till Point’.

For your convenience and to assist us in our administration of the service, a method of payment by cheque will be introduced. The cheque can be made out to Innovate Services Ltd, and handed in to the school Reception address to the kitchen. - Please write the full Name of Pupil and Class reference on back of cheque and place in an envelope.

Any amount of money can be paid into your account held within the system, money spent on food will be taken out of the system.

The school is also able to provide you with a report detailing each item of food served, each credit made to the system, for any time period and show a current balance.

There is a daily ‘spend limit’ programmed into the system of £5 this can be increased or decreased for an individual pupil by making a written request to the kitchen.
