ParentPay - our new online payment service

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!

 

What are the benefits to parents and pupils?

  • ParentPay is easy-to-use and will offer you the freedom to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24/7
  • The technology used is of the highest internet security available ensuring that your money will reach school safely – offering you peace of mind
  • Payments can be made by credit/debit card or also through PayPoint
  • Full payment histories and statements are available to you securely online at anytime
  • Your children will not have to worry about losing money at school
  • Parents can choose to be automatically alerted when their balances are low via email and/or SMS text

 

What are the benefits to our school?

  • The more parents that use ParentPay, the greater the benefit is to our school.
  • You can help us reduce administration time and cost, creating more time to lend to educational support and the smooth running of the school.
  • Using ParentPay also ensures that all financial transactions are safe and secure - helping us to remove costs associated with us having to manage cash securely on the school premises.

 

How to get started with ParentPay

  • On Monday 31st October we will be sending you your account activation details via the 'Book Bag Post', just follow the instructions in the letter we give you to get started with ParentPay.
  • If you want to find out more about ParentPay <<click here>> or go o to: www.parentpay.com

 

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!

 

Thanks

 

Chris
