IMPORTANT! This week we are beginning to collect biometric data from pupils, for the cashless system in the canteens. If you have not already done so, we would be grateful if parents/carers could complete the Biometric Consent Forms: https://pencoedcomp.wales/biometric-consent/
If your child uses the canteens, and you do not wish to give consent, please contact the school via email. Your child will be added to the list to receive a pin number.
Once the cashless system is in place, and child wishing to purchase food or drinks from the canteens will HAVE to use either a pin number, or biometric data to pay.
