Getting the most out of ParentPay

Go fully cashless with Bank Transfer and PayPoint

Encouraging parents to pay online can be difficult if they do not have access to the internet, or do not have a credit or debit card. To help you go completely cashless, we provide several additional payment options

  • Bank Transfer - make payments directly from a bank account (see article What is Bank Transfer)
  • PayPoint - enable parents to make cash payments at local stores for meals and payment items you send them (see article How to use PayPoint)

Stay cashless with your new year intake

When new pupils or students join your school, there are a lot of changes for their parents to consider. For more information on how you can encourage your new parents to make the most of ParentPay, see article, Staying cashless with a new year intake
