We use a convenient way to pay for school meals, trips and events online using a secure service called ParentPay.
In October 2016 we stopped accepting cash or cheque payments. The school is now a cash-free environment. Parents who need to continue making payments by cash may do so using the PayPoint network at any local convenience store or supermarket offering PayPoint services.
Online Payments for Meals, Trips and Items
ParentPay offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available.
Every family is issued a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password; you will be prompted to change these and to keep them safe and secure. If you have more than one child at our school or children at other ParentPay schools, you can create a single account login and attach all of your children.
Making a payment is straightforward and ParentPay holds a payment history for you to view at a later date; no card details are stored in any part of the system. Once you have activated your account you can make online payments straight away via the ParentPay website.
Payments using PayPoint
PayPoint payments are recorded by ParentPay and can be seen by logging into your ParentPay account and viewing your payment history online.
Please notify the School Finance Officer Sharen Thorpe if you wish to use the PayPoint facility. A laminated card will be issued to you to make cash payments for school meals at local PayPoint stores. The first card is free of charge; however, any lost or damaged cards will be charged at £1.50 each. To pay for a specific trip or event PayPoint payers will be issued a barcode letter.
