Payments for school dinners, trips, etc. can now be made online via ParentPay or by using PayPoint (click here to find your nearest PayPoint outlet). You can pay online through Parent Pay’s secure website using your debit/credit card, or in cash at PayPoint.
To set up this service, you will need an activation letter to access your account. If you haven’t received an activation letter, please contact the school office. Once you have activated your account, you will be able to make payments securely online at any time, as well as monitor the history of your payments and view the balance on your child’s account.
If you are unable to use the online account, you can still pay for things in cash at a local PayPoint outlet. The school office can give you a bar coded letter which can be used to make payment to school. A new letter is needed for each trip or event, which can be taken to a shop displaying the PayPoint symbol, where a cash payment can be made. (Each letter will contain a unique barcode which ensures payment reaches your account correctly). If you require a bar coded letter to make a payment, please contact the school office who will be happy to provide this.
