Finding the right change or writing a cheque for the school trip or other items for school can be tiresome and time consuming. You or your child must take the payment/s to school and the school office must count and record it. At school, we have decided to use Parent Pay to offer you an online payment method which puts you in control. You can access it at any time, track how much you have paid, what is outstanding and make payments directly to us using your debit or credit card.
You can give your consent for trips online, saving you the need to fill out permission slips and write notes into school about trips. Please ensure you check Parent Pay regularly for school trips. You can see a record of the payments that you’ve made, and receipts are sent to your registered email address for all transactions you make. You will also be able to see what meals have been taken by your child and your current meal balance and receive reminders to top up when you are getting low. The new system removes the need to send money into school with your child, removing the chance of money going astray, making it convenient for you to pay when it suits you, from anywhere at any time of day or night.
School lunches are booked on Parent Pay and can be booked up until midnight the night before a meal is needed. Orders can be booked for a day, week, half a term or a full term. Money will not leave your account until the meal has been taken on the day. If your child is absent from school and the lunch booking is cancelled the money will remain in your account.
