The school canteen usually offers a wide variety of different choices to the students, whether they are wanting a full hot meal or just a snack, we always have something tasty on the menu. Unfortunately due to COVID 19 regulations the choice of food is much more limited to more 'grab and go' selections such as sandwiches, paninni, jacket potatoes, pizza, pasta pots etc
Students should check with the catering staff if they have any concerns or even if there is something they would like to see served at lunchtime and we will do our best to help.
Whilst we cannot promise to cater for every ones tastes, we are always open to suggestions.
If you do have any allergies or special dietary requirements please speak to a member of staff.
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 currently identified by their pin number which they are given in school. Once they have selected their food the cashier asks for their name/pin and the transaction is completed.
Free School Meals
Children who are eligible for Free meals receive a daily allowance on their account, currently £2.30. 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.
If you have any other questions please contact school.
