Improving School Communication and an easier way for you to make school payments with ParentMail
Communicating with parents is an important part of what we do, making sure you get the correct information about activities, events and things that really matter is something we care about.
From 6 September 2018 we will be using ParentMail and +Pay on ParentMail – an online payment service which allows you to pay for school items quickly and easily on your smartphone, tablet or computer. ParentMail is a service used by over 6,000 schools, nurseries and children’s clubs to communicate to parents. ParentMail will be beneficial to you because you can:
- Use a free mobile app on Android and iOS to pick up school messages instantly
- Top up dinner money or pay for school trips/items in just a few taps
- Complete forms, give consent/permissions and give feedback on surveys
- Keep on top of school meetings and events
- Book parents’ evening appointments
- And much, much more
Registering with ParentMail is very easy! At the beginning of the holidays you will be sent either an email and/or text message from ParentMail, when you receive this please just follow the instructions in the message.
Please be assured that ParentMaill is registered with the Information Commissioner and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed onto any other organisation.
We will inform you about items you need to pay through ParentMail, and you will be able to pay electronically, using credit or debit cards as well as PayPal and PayPoint. Please note, your bank statement will display either the school name or ParentMail, dependent on your payment method.
Once registered, if you have an Android or Apple smartphone, we would highly recommend you download the free ParentMail App for the best user experience. To do this, simply search for “ParentMail” in your App store.
