At Ellesmere College, parents use an online cashless payment system called Parentpay to pay for school meals. It is also possible to pay for trips, uniform and other activities.
You can pay online using most major debit or credit cards, so you don’t have to worry about your child carrying cash into school and can have peace of mind that payments are made safely and securely directly to the school.
Payments can be made online whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – all you need is a PC, tablet or phone and access to the internet.
Parentpay allows you to see exactly how much money has been paid without having to ring the school office. This means you can keep on top of payments and avoid having to find the right change at the last minute.
Getting started with Parentpay
Already have a ParentPay account?
If you already have a ParentPay account, either with our school or another ParentPay school, you can simply log in to that account and add your other children via the Add a child tab on your home page. You will need the activation username and password the school have sent to you to do this.
New to ParentPay?
Please visit www.parentpay.com and activate your account via the Account login area on the home page of the site. You need to activate your account using a unique activation username and password which will have been sent to you by the school. You will be prompted to change these and to keep them safe and secure for future logins.
ParentPay holds an electronic record of your payments to view at a later date. Once you have activated your account you can make online payments straight away and will also be able to pay for trips and other school events.
If for any reason you cannot pay online, the Finance Office will issue you with a PayPoint barcode that can be taken to any Post Office or retail outlet where the payment can be made. Please ensure you keep the receipt as proof of purchase.
