ParentPay gives parents the ability to make secure, online payments for School Meals, trips and events.
The service allows parents to see what purchases their child has made in the School canteen and gives access to see how much is owed for forthcoming trips.
Secure payments can be made using debit/credit cards, American Express or via any shop with the PayPoint sign once a PayPoint card has been requested.
To request log in details or if you have any other questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The ParentPay Shop allows parents to purchase items online where a one-off payment is required.
Within the shop, you can purchase revision guides, calculators, tickets for School productions amongst other items.
No log in details are required to purchase the items and students can collect the items from Student Services 24 hours after the purchase has been made.
Please ensure that you enter your child’s name and form group at the checkout stage to ensure swift processing of your order.
Secure payments can be made by debit/credit cards or American Express.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com
We enable all parents to top-up their child’s dinner money account using an electronic payment system. The system removes the need for your child to bring cash to school, the money you add can only be spent by them in school, and you can see exactly what they are eating in our canteens.
Payments can be made online using a secure website called ParentPay, or at local stores where you see the PayPoint logo.
