Online Payments

posted 15 Oct 2015, 07:46 by Bobby Grewal   [ updated 15 Oct 2015, 08:04 ]
We are considering whether to offer a system of online payments for parents to allow the payment of dinner money, trips, music lessons and other payments - there are a number of systems available such as ParentPay, ParentMail and Tucasi. They all feature a parental account through which you can pay by credit or debit card for items and services. Some also feature the opportunity to pay through local shops (for example through PayPoint).

Moving to online payments for the majority of payments would remove the need for students to bring in cash for dinners and trips - helping to keep children safer, save time within the administration of the school (for example in cash handling processes) and allow better information to be available to parents on student's dinner purchases and amounts due to the school.

We would really like to hear your views, positive or otherwise, on whether you would use this service and any suggestions or ideas you have. Could you please spare 5 minutes to complete the survey on the below weblink to have your views heard. Your responses are anonymous although please give us your details in Question 7 if you are willing to be contacted for further information about your responses.

If you have any further queries or contributions please contact the School Business Manager, Jake Greenwood.
