ParentPay – this is our new online payment service.
We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting payments online for items such as dinner money and school trips. Using a secure website called ParentPay you can pay online using your credit or debit card. ParentPay will be our preferred method of making payments to school.
We are hoping that everyone will benefit from our new payment facility. ParentPay is easy-to-use and offers you the freedom to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24/7 – safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available and that funds will reach school safely.
Parents should all now have a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password that we've supplied you with; making a payment using your credit or debit card is straightforward and ParentPay holds an electronic record of all payments for you to view at a later date. When you make a payment, an e-mail confirmation is sent to you, giving you reassurance that the transaction has been successful.
In addition, ParentPay offers you the ability to set automated email/SMS reminders ensuring you never miss a payment and helping you keep your child’s school meal account in credit at all times. The more parents that use ParentPay, the greater the benefit is to the school. You can help us reduce workloads for all staff, creating more time to lend to educational support and the smooth running of the school. It also ensures that all financial transactions are safe and secure.
Once set up, we will send you an account activation username and password. Once you receive these:
• Visit www.parentpay.com
• Enter your Activation username and password in the Account Login section of the homepage. NB. These are for one-time use only, you will choose your own username and password for future access during the activation process
• Provide all the necessary information and choose your new username and password for your account – registering your email address will enable us to send you receipts and reminders
• Once activation is complete you can go to straight to My payment items, select which item(s) you wish to pay for and follow the simple on-screen instructions to complete your payment
Please be assured that ParentPay offers the highest security available and no card details are stored on the system or are accessible by the school or ParentPay. If you have any questions, please contact the school Finance Office.
