(For absence alerts, you will also receive an SMS text message to your mobile phone).


ParentPay is for parents and carers to pay money into their child's school dinner account. You can also use it to pay for trips and visits and other items from time to time. You should have received an activation letter when your child started at the school. If you didn't receive one, please contact us using the details below.
