Payment for school meals is via the sQuid online payment system. Please contact the school office if you have not received sQuid registration details for your child/ren.

Free School Meals


If you believe that your children may qualify for entitlement to free school meals you can find out more on where you can also make an online application or print off a paper form to send to the Civic Centre.  If you have any queries about free school meals you can contact 01792 635353 or email or visit the contact centre in the Civic Centre.
