ParentPay – our new online payment service
We’re pleased to announce that we now accept payments online for school trips and activities. Using a secure website called ParentPay you are able to pay online using your credit or debit card. ParentPay is our preferred method of making payments to school.
We are hoping that everyone will benefit from our new payment facility. ParentPay is easy-to-use and will offer you the freedom to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24/7 – safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available and that funds will reach school safely.
Parents will have a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password; making a payment using your credit or debit card is straightforward and ParentPay holds an electronic record of all payments for you to view at a later date. When you make a payment, an e-mail confirmation is sent to you, giving you reassurance that the transaction has been successful.
In addition, ParentPay offers you the ability to set automated email/SMS reminders ensuring you never miss a payment.
The more parents that use ParentPay, the greater the benefit is to the school. You can help us to reduce workloads for all staff, creating more time to lend to educational support and the smooth running of the school. It also ensures that all financial transactions are safe and secure.
