Squid

St Andrew’s operates a cashless catering and trip payment system (sQuid) that can be used to make a variety of school payments.

Parents can use sQuid to pay for school payments such as: Cashless Catering top ups, and payments for School Trips & Offers.

Benefits

  • Safer and more convenient; no need to worry about sending cash or cheques
  • View your child's transactions anywhere, at any time
  • Ensure money is being spent on healthy school meals
  • Auto top up payments for peace of mind that your account will never run out of funds

All students will be issued a sQuid card upon arrival at the school. Parents and guardians can register the card by visiting www.squidcard.com/standrewsboys. Once registered, parents and guardians will be able to top up the card with a set amount using a debit or credit card or set up a one-off or recurring direct debit payment directly from a bank account.

If your son is eligible for Free School Meals, £2.35 will be applied to your son’s card automatically every school day.

Trips and Offers

All trips and visits have to be paid for using the sQuid system; the school will no longer accept cash or cheques. When you log in to sQuid, you will see any trips and visits that your son is eligible to attend. Registration and payment for trips can be made online and you will receive an email confirmation of your payment.

Canteen & meals

The school restaurant provides hot meals, snacks and drinks. Main course and dessert options are available for £2.35 if bought together. Some boys may choose to bring a packed lunch to school. Food and drink should be consumed in the supervised areas.

Trips & School fund

The school fund provides money for many of the ‘extras’ which take place in school. Clubs, sports, trips and the minibus are all supported by the School Fund. We ask for a contribution of £20.00 per year from each family. Without this, many activities would not be able to run. We hope you will be able to support us so that we can give sympathetic consideration to genuine cases of financial hardship.
