Change to Online Payment System
We are changing our parent online payment system on 1st April from sQuid to Sims Pay. The new system will enable the school to allow online payments for more than just school meals, for example, trips, music etc.
Any balances on the accounts will be transferred over to the new system, however we do require all accounts to have a positive balance, any arrears need to be cleared before we will activate the new accounts.
We will send more details once we are due to return to school.
New starters are issued with a unique registration numbers during the first week. Your child can have a school dinner when they start and payment will be taken as soon as you have registered and added money to your child's account. We cannot issue the registration numbers until your child has been admitted to the school and then the system will update.
We cannot have any debts on dinner money accounts. The teachers process the orders every morning in their classroom and if the child's account does not have a credit balance on it, the dinner order will not go through, please ensure your child's account is always in credit or send in sandwiches. There is a facility on your sQuid account to make a automatic top-up when the account drops below your selected amount.
Please refer to our debt policy regarding accounts in debt. https://primarysite-prod-sorted.s3.amazonaws.com/radcliffeontrentjuniornottingham/UploadedDocument/805ed94742da4d1abd4f1c713cb58b53/parent-debt-policy.pdf
You will be contacted by text and/or phone call when your account has gone into debt, if the account continues to stay in debt we will ask that you to provide your child with sandwiches until the account has been paid in full.

The citizen portal is now live to apply for free school meals. Parents can register and apply for free school meals for Nottinghamshire schools through the public website and receive an immediate decision regarding their entitlement. This will then be confirmed by email. If parents are already authorised to receive free school meals then there is no need to reapply.
