From January 2018 Herbert Strutt Primary will become a cashless school.
From January 2018 all payments for school dinners, trips, breakfast club and after school clubs can be paid using the Parent Pay Website.
Further details regarding how to sign up will be sent home before the end of the 2017 autumn term.
In January we will introduced a more convenient way to pay for school meals, trips and clubs online using a secure service called ParentPay.
In January we will stop accepting cash or cheque payments. The school will be a cash-free environment.
Parents who need to continue making payments by cash may do so using the PayPoint network at any local convenience store or supermarket offering PayPoint services.
ParentPay offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available.
Every family is issued a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password; you will be prompted to change these and to keep them safe and secure.
If you have more than one child at our school or children at other ParentPay schools, you can create a single account login for all your children.
Making a payment is straightforward and ParentPay holds a payment history for you to view at a later date; no card details are stored in any part of the system.
PayPoint payments are recorded by ParentPay and can be seen by logging into your ParentPay account and viewing your payment history online.
Please notify the school office if you wish to use the PayPoint facility. A plastic card will be issued to you to make cash payments for school meals at local PayPoint stores.
The first card is free of charge; however, any lost or damaged cards will be charged at £2.50 each. Payment cards take about two weeks to arrive but we can issue a barcode letter as an interim measure.
