What are the benefits to parents and pupils?
• ParentPay is easy-to-use and offers parents the freedom to make online payments by credit or debit card, whenever and wherever they like, 24/7.
• The technology used is of the highest internet security available, ensuring that monies reach school safely and securely.
• Full payment details are available to parents online at anytime.
• Pupils won’t have to worry about losing money at school.
What are the benefits to our school?
Using ParentPay ensures that all financial transactions are safe and secure - helping us to remove costs associated with having to manage cash securely on school premises.
Less time spent in school on cash handling means more time is available to support the smooth running of the school.
Schools will of course continue to accept cash and cheque payments but we do hope that parents will use the new online facility. The more parents use ParentPay, the greater the benefit to our school.
We will be one of the first schools in the city to go-live with ParentPay in November. Parents will be sent individual letters detailing the account activation system nearer the time and user guides will be available online. By the end of the school year all parents and all schools in the city will benefit from ParentPay.
More details will follow but in the meantime, if you want to find out more about the ParentPay system, go to www.parentpay.com
