We have been asked by many parents to 'move with times' and take payments online. The benefits of doing this for both parents and the school are a big step forward from our existing 'cash and cheque' manual ways of working.
We are pleased to announce that from Monday 31st October 2016 we will be accepting payments online, initially for dinner money & After School Club . Using a secure website called ParentPay you will be able to pay online using your credit or debit card. The service represents the most convenient way for parents to pay rather than sending cash or cheques to the office and it will be our preferred method of making payments to school.
The ability to pay for trips, book bags & other items will follow directly after the launch for school dinners and After School Club – so even if you don’t currently pay for school dinners or After School Club please register now and be ready!

How to get started with ParentPay
As well as being more convenient for most parents, it will also improve efficiency in the office and support our ultimate aim of removing all cash and cheques from the school.
All existing balances for school dinners have been transferred from the existing paper registers into the new system, so when you register and log in you'll see exactly how much you are in credit or how much is outstanding. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me directly or any of the school office team.
This is a significant development for the school and your patience through it's implementation will be gratefully received!
