What is ParentPay?


It’s simple, safe, convenient and your child no longer needs to carry cash into school.


ParentPay is an online payment system for schools. It allows parents to pay quickly and securely for school meals, trips and activities.

You simply top-up your ParentPay account online by debit or credit card, or in cash through PayPoint stores. Payment by standing order and faster payments is also available.


Getting Started


New to ParentPay?


You should now have received a letter with activation details for each child.  If you have lost this or not yet received it,  speak to a member of staff at the school office.


You need a valid email address as a username and for account verification.  Follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to

  2. Select Login at the top right corner of the screen

  3. Enter the username and password provided in your account activation letter and select Activate

  4. Complete the activation as detailed on the screen.

  5. That’s it you’re done!


If you would like to use ParentPay on your smartphone, just bookmark the login page to your home screen for easy access.


ParentPay can be accessed on tablets, phones, laptops and desk computers as long as there is an internet connection.


Already have a ParentPay account?


You can add up to six active children to a single ParentPay account, even if the children attend different schools (schools must use the ParentPay service).


Follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the account you want to use as your main account (this will become the only account you use in future).
  2. Select the Add a child tab on the home page.
  3. Enter the username and password (activation codes) provided in your activation letter.
  4. Select Search.  Your child’s name will be listed on screen.
  5. Select Add to my account.


On your homepage you should now see an additional tab for the child you have added to the account.


Repeat this process for any other children you wish to add to your account – up to a maximum of 6 active children per account.


Please note: Please ensure that when adding a new child using an activation letter you have received, that you add them to your existing account where one exists.


Once you are up and running you can:

  • View your balance, top up online with debit or credit card, set up a standing order, faster payment or pay by cash through PayPoint.

  • Get alerted by text or email if your balance gets low or when you have something new you can pay for like a school trip or out of school clubs, lessons or other activities.

  • Payments are received safely by the school, meaning you do not have to send your child to school with cash, money doesn’t get lost and is spent on its intended purpose.
