Paying online gives you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your money reaches the school safely. Parents can now book and pay securely online for a range of items using a debit/credit card or through PayPoint.
We can provide a Paypoint letter to enable you to make cash payments at your local Paypoint store, this will be linked to your ParentPay account, following which you can make your menu choices to pre-book meals. Please let the school office know if you would like a Paypoint letter.
How do I use ParentPay?
You will have been issued with a unique username and password by the school office to activate your account, if not please contact the school office.
Go to www.parentpay.com and login with these details. Go to ‘Profile’ and change your password and username to something memorable.
Also, register your e-mail address here so we can send receipts of payments and the school can notify you easily when payments need to be made. That’s it, now you can start making hassle free, secure payments to your child’s school whenever you like.
What cards can I use?
ParentPay accepts MasterCard and Visa credit cards and Maestro, Switch, Delta, Electron, Solo and Visa debit cards. Some schools may limit the use of credit cards for some transactions; you will be informed by the school directly of any such restrictions.
Is it safe to make payments on the internet?
YES. In fact, it’s as safe to pay online with ParentPay as it is to use your credit card in a shop or over the phone! ParentPay uses leading technology to process your credit/debit card transactions securely. All communication with the bank is encrypted (jumbled up so no one else can read it). Neither ParentPay nor the school have access to your card details and your card details are never kept by ParentPay or the school.
I don’t have a home PC so I can’t use ParentPay
