Important Message - Changes to Payments for School Dinners

Have you Registered for Scopay?

Earlier this year the academy introduced a new online payment system, Scopay, to enable parents to make payments to the academy for trips, and other resources via a credit or debit card. Thank you if you have signed up for the online account as it has led to significant efficiencies within the academy, and hopefully you will have seen the benefits of paying online too.

With effect from Monday 5th June 2017 the academy will also be moving from sQuid to Scopay for online school dinner payments. It is extremely important that parents register their Scopay account in advance of this change to allow payments to be made online. The registration instructions, and one time link code, have been resent to all parents yet to create an account. Payments for school dinners will be accepted through Scopay from 4 pm on Friday 2nd June 2017.

All online sQuid accounts will be blocked at the end of this half term and any balance outstanding on accounts at Friday 26th May will be transferred over to the new Scopay system by the new operators.

Please be aware that if you have not granted permission for your child to use the current fingerprint system for lunches, they will not be able to use this function with Scopay.

Students will be able to load their accounts with money via cash machines in the canteen and opposite A Block Sports Hall. These units will accept the new £5 notes and £1 coins from 5th June 2017.

Please note that there are a number of year group trips planned for the end of this term and these will also all require online payment via Scopay.
