Squid is the online payment system used by the school which allows parents to pay for school trips, activities and catering through a single portal. Registering is quick and easy and payments can then be made by debit card, credit card or bank transfer.

These accounts should NOT go overdrawn. Please ensure that you have money on your child’s sQuid account to pay for any school meals your child will have before the day of the meal.

When your account balance goes below £5 an e-mail is generated by sQuid advising your account has a low balance, please bear this in mind and top up your account as necessary.

Should your account subsequently go overdrawn our daily procedures are as follows:

  • Text to Parent reminding them to top up account
  • Follow up text to parent
  • Text to Parent from Executive Head requesting top up that day
  • Text to Parent advising they must send in sandwiches until the account is in credit

If you are experiencing difficulties when trying to top up your sQuid account please contact sQuid using the ‘help centre’ link at the bottom left of the screen, scroll down to the bottom of the list of questions and select ‘contact us’

Please remember it is your responsibility to ensure your child has access to a lunch everyday whether this is a packed lunch from home or a paid school dinner via sQuid.


Please contact the School office for an individual number and instructions if you would like to set up a squid account.
