Visit www.parentpay.com and activate your account via the Account login area on the home page of the site.
Already have a ParentPay account?
If you already have a ParentPay account, either with our school or another ParentPay school, you can simply login to that account and add your other children via the ‘Add a child’ tab on your home page. You will need your activation username and password to do this.
New to ParentPay?
You can set up a secure online account, activated using a unique activation username and password; you will be prompted to change these and to keep them safe and secure as your Username and Password for future logins.
If you have two or more children at a ParentPay school, you only need to activate one account to create your ‘main account’ and then add your other children via the ‘Add a child tab’ on your home page.
ParentPay holds an electronic record of your payments to view at a later date. Once you have activated your account you can make online payments straight away. Menu selections for children in Years Reception, 1 and 2 will be available from 12 April 2018.
Those parents wishing to pay cash should contact the school office to request the option of paying via PayPoint or pay via the office for a transition period.
