Paying for Meals

Rainhill High School now operates a Cashless Biometric Payment System for meals. This means that your child can pay for school dinners using only their fingerprint. Details on the three ways of adding funds to this account follows:

  • Complete the secure checkout. You will be given a final opportunity to review your purchases prior to committing your card payment.
  • You will receive an onscreen notification when you have completed your payment.

*If Payment due section displays £0.00 no further action is required you will receive an onscreen notification to confirm these bookings.

*If Payment due value is greater than £0.00, you will be directed to the order summary page to complete your payment. If payment is not made within 2 hours your bookings will be cancelled.


You can top up your child's meals account at any shop that has a Paypoint terminal. You can request a Paypoint letter containing a barcode that you can use to add funds to your account. Please contact Michaela Peers-Zilkova in our finance department at to request additional information.

Biometric Terminals

Top-ups can be added manually at the terminals around the school site. Your child can simply scan their fingerprint at the terminal and insert money into the machine to add it to their account.
