Coming soon: Online payments to school with ParentPay!
Starting on Monday 24th February 2020 all the schools within Esteem Multi Academy Trust will be introducing a more convenient way to pay for school meals, trips and activities online, using a secure service called ParentPay.
Please note classes may still ask for cash contributions for items such as tuck.
ParentPay will be live at school from this date and we will no longer be accepting cash or cheque payments, making the school a cash-free environment. Parents who need to continue making payments by cash may do so using the PayPoint network at local convenience stores.
Making secure payments online using your credit or debit card
ParentPay offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available.
You will have a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password; you will be prompted to change these, and to keep them safe and secure. If you have more than one child at our school, or children at other ParentPay schools, you can create a single account login for all your children.
Making a payment is straightforward and ParentPay holds a payment history for you to view at a later date; no card details are stored in any part of the system. Once you have activated your account you can make online payments straight away.
Taking cash by PayPoint
PayPoint payments are recorded by ParentPay and can be seen by logging into your ParentPay account and viewing your payment history online. The nearest PayPoint stores to school are listed on the attached map.
Please notify the school office if you wish to use the PayPoint facility. School dinners, trips and activity information letters will carry a unique barcode which will allow you to make cash payments at your local PayPoint store.
We hope you will support us in achieving our goal to become a cashless school and reduce the workload on our staff. Your support in using ParentPay will help the school enormously, thank you. You will receive your unique ParentPay Account activation details within the next few days
