To make it more convenient for parents to pay for school meals, trips, after school clubs and much more online, we use a secure online service called ParentPay. We therefore do not accept cash and cheque payments, except for meals via the revaluation machines. This helps make the school a cash-free environment. Parents who wish to continue making payments by cash may do so by using the revaluation pay points in school.
To make life even easier, if you have more than one child in our school or children at other ParentPay schools, you can create just the one account for all your children.
If you’re unsure on your log in details, please contact the school reception via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01527 525725.
