Cashless Catering and Bio metrics (sQuid)

sQuid is a secure online payment system that eliminates the need for your child to bring cash or cheques into school. It can be used to pay for school trips, lunches and any other expenses that may be incurred at school. sQuid funds are pre-loaded to the secure online account and then spent in the canteen using a unique biometric finger print identifier (not an actual fingerprint). We are required to obtain consent from parents or carers before recording student’s biometric data. Therefore, we ask that you ensure you tick the consent boxes on the pupil registration form.

We usually complete the scanning on the new students induction day. If you do not wish to participate in this process the school will make alternative arrangements for your child to purchase food in the canteen using a card. There is a replacement charge payable for lost cards. Please email if you do not want to have your child biometrically registered. You will be provided with a unique, secure access code for your sQuid account prior to the start of the school year.
