How does the canteen system work?

Meden uses the SQUID account system to top up and purchase food in school. Once your child enrols in school they will be allocated a SQUID membership number and this will allow you to set up an online account. By logging on to your account you can top up the amount on your child's account and also view their purchases. If your child previously had a SQUID account at another school it may be possible to merge the account. All instructions are contained on the letter you will receive once the SQUID account is set up.

Students are identified when placing their finger on to the special reader at point of pay. They can top up their account in school on one of the top up machines or you can do this online.

Free School Meals

Children who are eligible for Free meals receive a daily allowance on their account, currently £2.70 (from 01-01-2024). This amount can only be spent on that day and is only available at lunch. If your child wishes to purchase items at breaktime then you should top up the account accordingly. If your child is new to the school the free meal information can take a few days and if you are moving from outside of Nottinghamshire you will have to reapply.

If you think you are eligible for free meals then please contact 0300 500 80 80 to apply.
