ParentPay – What is it?
ParentPay is an online cash system that allows parents/carers to pay money into an account to pay for school meals, trips and other items. As the School is getting more and more used to ParentPay we are adding more and more items that can be purchased through ParentPay, such as school ties and exams.
ParentPay is more widely used for dinner money. Parents/Carers can log onto their accounts and see exactly what their children are eating and drinking at breakfast, break and lunch. You can set a limit per day, and you can pay as little as £5 per transaction. Students have a biometric thumb print taken and then when they go to the tills put their thumb print on the register and payment is taken out of their account, therefore alleviating the need to find dinner money each week or your child to carry money around.
