School meals are paid for using SQuid Pay, an online website which each of our pupils is registered for. A more convenient and safer way to pay, sQuid is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and provides an online smart account for parents that can be topped up and managed using an easy-to-use web portal or powerful mobile App.
sQuid is a socially inclusive system as it has the widest means of top up methods available for parents. This includes Paypoint, which allows parents who are unable to access the internet to top up their child’s sQuid account at retail locations across the UK. Top up methods include:
All Key Stage 1 children (Years R, 1 and 2) are entitled to a free school meal and some KS2 children are too if parents' are in receipt of income support. Full details of these arrangements may be obtained from the Area Education Officer or from the school.
