New Payment System – Parent Pay (September 2018)

Dear Parent/Carer,

I am delighted to announce that from September we will be launching ParentPay at The Blandford School, and will be issuing further information on this in the next few weeks.

This online payment system will enable you to pay for student(s) meals online, but also for any school trips, music tuition etc.

If you currently have an account with sQuid, I would recommend that you top-up balances to pay for any meals by the minimum amount so that your account is as close to zero by the end of the academic year as possible.

Students who are entitled to free school meals, and new students to the school, will automatically be issued with cards which can be used with the ParentPay system, and which are also suitable to use the school’s printers.

Parents and carers of other students are asked to confirm if they would like to use ParentPay to purchase school lunches.  If you do not wish to use this system, your child should keep their existing card for use on our photocopiers only.  Cards are not needed to make online payments for any trips or other items.

I am very pleased to be able to offer this enhanced online payment facility, and hope that many parents and carers will find it useful.


Kind regards

Liz Bishopp
