Old £1 coins and old paper £5 & £10 notes
As you may know, the old £1 coins and £5 paper notes have now ceased to be legal tender and the paper £10 will be ceasing on 1 March 2018.
Old £1 coins and £5 notes can no longer be accepted as payment for school trips and events nor by Aspens for payment of dinner money. The old £10 note will continue to be accepted until Wednesday 21 February 2018 so that we can arrange for them to be banked before the 1 March deadline.
Any old coins or notes received in the finance office after this time will be returned to you and we will request an alternative method of payment. Please note that your trip or event etc will not be marked as fully paid until a replacement payment has been received.
Our preferred method of payment, for all school activities and dinner money etc, is online via School Gateway (https://login.schoolgateway.com/0/auth/login). If you have not yet created a login, please follow the link above.
If you have any queries or need any assistance with setting up your Gateway access, please contact the finance office.
