Every parent knows it’s difficult keeping track of all the school activities, clubs and events their children do. There’s always something to pay for â€“ water bottles, dinner money, school visits
We are looking into the possibility of implementing an online payment and information system called ParentMail.
ParentMail helps make life just that little bit easier; with a single account you can receive information and make payments to school.
Parents and carers can also share an account so both can be kept up-to-date with everything thatâ€™s going on in their childrenâ€™s lives.
You can use a ParentMail account from your computer or by using the free mobile phone App where you can:
Top-up dinner money & view your childrenâ€™s dinner accounts online
Receive messages from school or clubs
Pay for trips and activities
Authorise trips and activities
All payments made through ParentMail are secure and no card/bank details are stored with either ParentMail or the school. If you do not have access to a computer or phone with internet connection, you would be able to make card payments at the school office. ParentMail would also notify you when your account is running low on credit.
We feel that this system would be a more secure way of bringing money into school â€“ removing the need for children to carry money in book bags and providing you with a receipt via your account!
We are asking parents to let us know if this system is something they would be interested in us implementing. We must receive enough responses to justify us signing up. A letter will come home with your children this evening, therefore we would be grateful if you could complete the reply slip attached to it and return it to the school office as soon as possible.
