Making Payments - ParentPay

What is ParentPay?


ParentPay is a secure online income collection and management service which allows you to make payments to school using your debit/credit cards or in cash at local PayPoint outlets. We are a cashless school and no longer accept payments within school by cash or cheque.


All payments for school dinners, breakfast club, trips, instrumental lessons etc should be made online via ParentPay or by using PayPoint (Click here to find your nearest PayPoint).


This can be used to pay for:


  • School meals
  • Breakfast Club
  • Trips/Workshops
  • After School Clubs
  • Music Lessons


How Does ParentPay Work?


You will require an activation letter to access your account. If you do not have an activation letter, please contact the school office. Once you have activated your account -


You have a secure online account accessible 24/7


  • We post items for payment to your account
  • You then choose how to pay
  • ParentPay keeps a record of all payments you make
  • You have greater control of your account using automated email/SMS alert


What if I am not able to pay online?


Although most families will use the online system we understand that this is not always possible and there are two alternative options available:


  • Bar Coded Letter



Bar Coded Letter


This can be used to pay for a school trip, event or music lessons. A new letter is required for each trip or event. The letter is taken to a shop displaying the PayPoint symbol where a cash payment may be made. The shop scans the letter and payment is sent to us in the same way as an online payment. If you require a Bar Coded Letter please contact the school office. Click here to find your nearest PayPoint


If you require any assistance with ParentPay including activation letters or bar coded letters please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
