A new service which has been introduced on the card is online electronic payments for school meals, using sQuid (the electronic payments module available on the NEC). This solution enables payments for school meals to be made online instead of sending cash or cheques to school. This is currently live in St Aidan's High School, Wishaw and Bellshill Academy. At the start of the new school term in August 2012, this system will be extended to all payments within Bellshill Academy (eg school trips, fees, etc) and will be extended to an additional secondary school and a small selection of primary schools (further details will be provided once schools have been selected) For further information or to register go to the sQuid card.
