Wisepay

SMART CARD – Credits made online will appear immediately on your WisePay account. However the credit will not appear on your child’s Smart Card, nor will your child’s purchases appear on your WisePay account for up to 17 hours following the transaction or if the transaction is after 3.pm. on Friday, until the following Monday at 8 a.m. This reason for the delay is because the school tills are synchronised with information from the WisePay system twice daily (except weekends) at around 8.am. and 3 p.m.

HOT LUNCH BOOKINGS or SMART CARD CREDITS – Please click on the relevant link below to access the WisePay payment link for your child’s school. For setting up your first Smart Card account, please ensure you have your child’s smart card number available (not applicable for VCP) as it is required to register and allocate payments.

Capsicum Catering have installed the new till and payment system called ‘Smart Card’ in the catering facilities at the above schools.

The card works as a credit facility and enables your child to purchase, amongst many other items, hot meals, sandwiches, salad/pasta pots, fruit pots, home made soups, snacks and drinks that are available in the restaurants and bistros without having to take cash into school. The cards are ‘topped up’ using a secure online payment system called ‘Wise Pay’.

You will also be able to view daily, the card’s purchases each time you log onto your account. The card allows you the peace of mind that your child is not carrying cash all day and that they are using the school restaurant for approved food and drinks within the Jersey school food standards.

FAQs

A

Your child will be able to obtain their first card free by handing in the signed letter sent to you to their School Office or Reception.

For Hautlieu only, please ask your child to hand the signed letter to one of the catering team during the agreed collection time ( 8.30 am – 10.00 am and 2.00 pm – 3.30 pm) to help ease the queuing at the till for card collection during breaks. The cards will be distributed from the Catering office in the restaurant area.

Once you have the card you will need to register on-line and credit your account. This is done through the relevant school link above and is accessible to use 24 hours, 7 days a week. On the website you need to go to the ‘Restaurants & Catering’ section followed by the ‘Schools & Contract Catering’ section and click on the relevant school link. You will need your child’s card number to do this.

Cash will still be accepted within the Café and vending machines.

Sustainable Fish

We work with local fisherman to supply fresh, sustainable fish for our menus where local supplies allow this. We offer a fish dish at least twice a week for the children, including our very popular homemade fishcakes. For a short film demonstrating how we have achieved this with local fish in one of our schools, please click here.

Jersey Produce

We are very proud to support and encourage the Jersey farmers and food producers. Ensuring we source, use and promote our Island’s products wherever possible is a very important part of our food standards.

Organic Gardens

We are also working with the Schools to develop organic gardens to use not only to supply the Kitchen with fresh produce & herbs but also to use in educating the children in classes about seasonal produce.

We currently have trials with two sites with composting wormeries, which produce home made plant feed and compost for the organic gardens. These are a useful tool to teach the children about recycling.

Theme Days

Our catering team, often with the support and help of a selected class or year group, plan and serve a regular themed menu to the children.

The themes will be linked to either a specific topic being taught in school, a charitable cause being championed by the school or a country to highlight their traditional food flavours, bringing new tastes to the children.

To enhance the theme our teams dress accordingly and decorate the counter and dining areas.
