sQuid Payment System

The Bulmershe School is cashless for all transactions, whether that be school lunches, in the school shop, or when paying for trips.

When students start at Bulmershe, families should receive instructions on how to set up a sQuid Account, which is the biometric system we use, so that students can use their thumbprint in the canteen and parents can manage payments online.


  • More convenient; no need to worry about sending cash or cheques
  • Students also don’t need to worry about losing cash in school
  • The queue for food moves much faster
  • 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

To buy food in the canteen, sQuid does require families to keep student’s accounts topped up – and it possible to set an automatic top up when accounts reach a certain level.

You can use sQuid on a computer: sQuid Website

or by downloading the app to your phone:

To add multiple children to one sQuid account, you need to do this using the sQuid phone app once you have received the 16-digit registration number for the new child from school.

You should receive your registration codes for new year 7s towards the end of the Summer Term when they are in year 6. Please email transition@bulmershe.wokingham.sch.uk if you have not received this by mid July.
