Would you appreciate the convenience of paying for the food your children buy in Café Mojo at the click of a button? Or paying for a school trip your child has been looking forward to. Later this summer you will be able to at The Radclyffe School.
Parent Pay may be something you are already familiar with from your child’s primary school. The easy to use online platform enables you to take control. Instead of sending money into school you can keep your child’s account topped up from the comfort of your sofa.
If your child is on Free School Meals you will be able to check your child’s account, and see exactly what they are buying and when.
To get started you will receive an activation letter to enable you to set up your ParentPay account. This letter contains a personal activation username and password to get you logged in. You can then change your username and password to something easier to remember. You can also merge your accounts if you have more than once child at The Radclyffe School.
ParentPay offers a highly secure payment site, showing you a record of all transactions and all items available for payment. A receipt of your payment is emailed to you after each transaction.
The new system will enable you to make payments whenever and wherever you like. You no longer need to find cash or write a cheque. You will have the peace of mind that your payment has gone through, safely and securely, and promptly so you can budget with confidence. Payments for some trips can be made in instalments, helping to spread the cost.
ParentPay will also make things easier for the school, reducing the time spent on banking and providing accurate records of payments. Where refunds are necessary, such as for leavers whose account is in credit, these can be made onto the payment card used. Communication about payments between parents and the school will also become easier.
You can expect to receive your activation letter in May, and can look forward to greater convenience.
