In an attempt to remove all cash and cheques from school we are asking parents to use our e-payment method to pay for school meals. This can be done online using a very secure website called ParentPay.
You have 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 ParentPay accounts, you only need to activate one account to create your ‘main account’ and then add your other accounts via the on your home page.
Please visit ParentPay and activate your account via the account login area on the home page of the site.
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.
Families in receipt of support payments may also be entitled to free meals. Information on entitlement can be found here:
