‘Cityserve Pay provides a fast and easy way for Birmingham schools to manage catering and other school payments and can save schools around £5,000 a year in costs, as well as reducing administration time and cutting waste. Powered by FCA-regulated cashless payments provider sQuid, Cityserve Pay has been exclusively licensed for use by Birmingham City Council. The system will use sQuid Dinner Money, which simplifies meal management, and sQuid SchoolPay, which manages trips, clubs, parent communication and school-related booking. It means there will be no cash-handling when it comes to paying for school meals, making it appealing for parents, while benefits to schools include cost savings, improved efficiency and easier budgeting. The system is being offered free to all Cityserve schools, who will not have to pay any upfront cost - just a transaction charge of 1.2%. Non-Cityserve schools can also sign up to the system for a competitive price.
