Payment is accepted through the online system of sQuid. Please log onto to make your payment. If you do not currently use the sQuid system then please contact and we can arrange for you to receive a username and password.

Visit for information about this method of payment. Your Squid account will become active from the September that your son/daughter becomes a pupil at Samuel Barlow Primary, and all children will be issued with log in details automatically. We will write to you with details of your 16 digit sQuid registration number and 3 digit security code.

You will be able to ‘load’ money via sQuid for meals at the academy, together with breakfast club, trips and activities. Please ensure that all funds are paid into the correct ‘wallet’.
