HVS are delighted to work in partnership with Innovate to provide school catering.
Covid-19 Catering Restrictions
Due to restrictions placed on us to operate in a Covid secure manner, our normal catering provision has been temporarily suspended. Our school kitchen is not able to offer breakfast, break time or after school dining options at present.
Lunch is served in 3 locations, in separated year groups and times, and due to this each lunch time we are serving a choice of a hot meal with vegetarian option or a jacket potato. Please click here to view our temporary weekly menus up to Christmas 2020.
Under normal circumstances, the following information regarding our catering service applies;
Students will have the opportunity to buy healthy snacks at break time.
There will be a full range of healthy lunch options.
All food can be purchased using our cashless catering system, sQuid.

Adding Money to sQuid
When you log in to your existing sQuid account, you will see that you have a ‘catering purse’ as well as a ‘trips and visits purse’. You will need to ensure that your catering purse is kept topped up in order for your child to be able to make purchases from the canteen.
So that your child can purchase items, you will need to ensure your child’s ‘catering purse’ has funds in advance. You are able to set an auto top-up and direct debit as you wish.
We will still use the ‘trips and visits’ purse for school trip or other payments to HVS. However you should not use this purse for topping up your child’s catering account.
For those of you who have students entitled to Free School Meals, the School will allocate funds to your child’s account each day to the sum of £2.45. You will not see this on your sQuid account and if it is not used, it does not roll over to the next day. You are of course welcome to add your own funds to your child’s account.
A reminder that to access your sQuid account, you should use the following link https://portal.squidcard.com/LoginPortal/
If you have forgotten either your username or your password, you should follow the reset instructions. If you have never created a sQuid account for your child, please email email@example.com and we shall send you the registration details again.
