sQuid has now arrived at your school in Nottinghamshire County Council
What is the school cashless catering system all about?
Your school has teamed up with sQuid to develop a new cashless catering system. We will be one of the first schools in the country to use this technology.
Create an account and register with sQuid
Simple to setup, simple to use
You should have received a welcome letter from your child's school with your own unique sQuid registration number (16 digits long) and a 3 digit security code. You need to register with sQuid, create and account and enter these numbers. You will then be able to top-up your account and view your balance and transactions.
Parents can be sure that dinner money is spent at school and students won’t have to worry about carrying cash. Lunchtime queues are reduced and the risk of students losing money is removed.

Make sure you top-up the correct purse on your sQuid account
Your sQuid account can have more than one purse. A purse is a simple way to split out the different things you may want to spend money on. For example a cashless catering purse to pay for school dinners and a school e-payments purse to pay for school trips and other school items. It is important to make sure you top-up the correct purse.
Top-up your child's cashless catering purse
Top-up this purse, your child's cashless catering purse online, so that they can then pay for their lunch or a snack from the school canteen. Top-up by bank transfer, or from a credit or debit card.
Top-up this ePayments purse to pay for school trips
If your child's school has enabled online payments for school trips you will also see this purse on your sQuid account. In this purse, you can view and pay for your child's school trips or other items. Pay online using a credit or debit card.
