The method of paying for school dinners is online via a sQuid account.
If you pay for your child/ren to have school dinners, you will need to create a sQuid account for each child. Each child is given their own unique registration number. If you need a number in order to register please come into the school office and they will be able to provide this.
Children entitled to (and who have registered for) Free School Meals, and children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 who receive a free school dinner under the Universal Infant Free School Meals do not need to register for a sQuid account. However, if you wish for your child to receive a drink in addition to their meal, then you will need to create a sQuid account for this. If no sQuid account is created for this, or there is not enough credit on the account, then your child will be able to have water.
Choosing from the menu:
In response to parent/carer requests the children are now asked to decide at registration in the morning what they want for lunch that day from the menu options displayed on the classroom interactive whiteboard. You may wish to speak to your child in advance to discuss the menu options available each day, which dishes are the healthier options and, especially, check that your child knows the names of food items that they may previously have known only by sight. We hope that the system ensures that every child receives their food preferences. The current menu can be viewed on the school website, or copies are available from the school office.
Break time snack:
All children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with a healthy snack at breaktime. If your KS2 child wishes to have a snack at breaktime, please provide them with fruit or vegetables.
THE SYSTEM WILL NOT ALLOW AN OVERDRAFT. Please ensure that your child's account has enough credit for each day's meal. If not, your child will need to bring in a packed lunch.
