Capsicum Contract Catering now provides the catering in eight schools and colleges and two nurseries in the Island. In delivering our service we are guided by principles of ensuring children and students receive a balanced, healthy diet. We work alongside the States of Jersey in delivering the three-year ‘Healthy Eating for Schools’ campaign
We are also fully committed to supplying sustainable food to our schools and nurseries and are passionate about ensuring we and our suppliers adhere to best practice in all links in the food chain, from sourcing to preparation to serving. By sourcing locally wherever possible to limit the food miles incurred, the distance food travels from sea or field to plate is kept to a minimum. Some of the best natural products and foods are readily available on Jersey’s doorstep and we are proud to advertise this to the Children, Students and Teachers we serve.
We also are working in partnership with local suppliers to provide great food produced in Jersey where ever possible.
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
Please click on the relevant link below to access the WisePay payment link for your child’s school. Please ensure you have your child’s smart card number available (not applicable for VCP) as it is required to register and allocate payments.

Jersey Pottery 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.

Our Standards and Objectives
Healthy Eating Guidelines
Our partnership with the States of Jersey Education and Health Departments is for a three year journey to bring healthier school meals to selected States secondary school pupils in Jersey.
The new standards for school food which have been introduced by the State’s Education Department include replacing deep fried foods, sweets and crisps with healthier options.
Jersey’s Education Director has said there were links between diet, learning and behaviour and sensible choices about food was a part of equation.
He said eating healthier school dinners would give children in Jersey the best chance to fulfil their potential.
The Jersey School Food Standards will ensure the quality of food served in States island schools reflects the principle of a healthy, balanced diet and will be phased in over a three-year period in consultation with students.
Medical Officer of Health, Dr Rosemary Geller said: “Providing healthy food in schools is vital if we are to be anIisland that prioritises our children’s health.
“Giving students the opportunity to choose freshly prepared, nutritious and balanced school meals will hopefully foster an enjoyment of healthy food that will encourage young people to continue to eat in the same way throughout their lives.”
