Using Parentpay

Use our school online payment system to make dinner money top-ups or school trip payments quickly and easily. View your child’s balance online or receive SMS texts alerts from our parent communication system

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’ve activated your account you can make online payments straight away.

By making PayPoint payments for school you can still pay in cash but there is no need for your child to carry money into school, creating completely cashless schools.

With the use of cheques being significantly reduced we help schools offer a choice of payment options that are convenient and safe for parents and pupils and help reduce the administration burden in schools.

Using 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:

  • Co-operative – 8 Covingham Square, Swindon, SN3 5AA
  • Martins- 2 Covingham Square, Swindon, SN3 5AA
  • Covingham Mini Market – 4 St. Pauls Drive, Swindon, SN3 5BY
  • Costcutter – 56 Welcombe Avenue, Swindon, SN3 2QR
  • McColls – Unit 4 Marlowe Avenue, Swindon, SN3 3HQ

Please notify the school office if you wish to use the PayPoint facility. A plastic card will be issued to you to make cash payments for school meals at local PayPoint stores. The first card is free of charge; however, any lost or damaged cards will be charged at £1.50 each. Payment cards take about two weeks to arrive but we can issue a barcode letter as an interim measure.

Trip and activity information letters will carry a unique barcode which will allow you to make cash payments at your local PayPoint store.

Getting Started

The School office will issue you with your unique ParentPay Account activation details. Once you have received these simply logon to the parent pay website (see Useful Links) to activate your account.
