As part of our response to the current pandemic we have had to move to a cashless system within school. This means that from September 2020 all payments to school must be made online using our ParentPay system for items such as dinner money, school trips and other items. Students will not be able to pay money onto their accounts via money loaders and we will not be accepting cash at the school office in order to protect staff and minimise the need for parents to access school.
Please contact us if you need any help with this at email@example.com
ParentPay is a secure website and you are able to pay online using your debit card or pay in cash at local PayPoint stores.
