Did you know that you can pay for lunch money, trips and more using our online payment system, Tucasi? 

What is Tucasi?

Tucasi is a secure online payment system which allows parents to easily make payments for lunch money, trips and other events that are happening in school. Parents can also monitor lunch money balances and view what their children have had for lunch. 

How do I sign up?

You should have already received an instruction letter and a unique code to set up your Tucasi account. If you need us to send another one, please email: admin@ashingtonacademy.co.uk.

 

Here’s how it works...

  • You can top-up your child’s lunch money account online using a debit card. There is no fee to parents for topping up, however the minimum top up is £10. The balance on the account will be updated instantly and will be available to use within one hour.

  • Students pay for their lunch in the usual way using the fingerprint system at the tills.

  • The online balance will be updated overnight and parents will be able to view what their children have purchased from the school menu.

  • Any trips and events in school can be paid for online. You can put money towards the trip as and when it is convenient, check when payments are due and monitor balances.
