In an attempt to remove all cash and cheques from school, we are asking all parents to only use our e-payment method to pay for school meals and any school trips, in addition to the purchase of other resources from school, i.e. ties, student card, specific equipment for GCSE lessons etc.
This can be done online using a very secure website called ParentPay or in cash at local stores where you see the PayPoint logo.
Already have a ParentPay account? If you already have a ParentPay account, either with our school or another ParentPay school, you can simply login to that account and add your other children via the 'Add a child' tab on your home page.
You will need an activation username and password to do this. You should have received this from us in the post or via email. If you have not received ParentPay login details, please email email@example.com who will issue this to you.
New to ParentPay? You have a secure online account, activated using a unique activation username and password; you will be prompted to change these and to keep them safe and secure as your Username and Password for future logins.
If you have two or more children at a ParentPay school, you only need to activate one account to create your ‘main account’ and then add your other children via the 'Add a child' tab on your home page. Please visit https://app.parentpay.com/public/client/security/v2/#/login and activate your account via the 'Account login' area on the home page of the site.
ParentPay holds an electronic record of your payments to view at a later date. Once you have activated your account you can make online payments straight away.
Those parents wishing to pay cash should contact the finance department at the school to request the option of paying via PayPoint. Please note that PayPoint cards do carry a charge of £1.50 per card. Please do not hesitate to contact the school finance department if you need assistance. Your support in using ParentPay will help the school enormously.
Once a payment has been made for school meals, these monies will appear on the child’s school meal account managed by the school caterers. Payment for school visits and other items (ties, student cards etc) create an alert to the school finance team. Where the payment relates to an item of equipment, that item will be delivered to the student in school or, a message will be sent to the student to collect the item.
Any queries relating to ParentPay should be directed to either firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to help.
