St Patrick's is a cashless school. We currently use ParentPay to allow parents to make secure payments for breakfast club, after school child care provision, holiday club, music fees, trips and dinners.
Visit ParentPay to make a
payment or create an account.
How do I use ParentPay?
When you receive your unique username and password from the school office just log on to
www.parentpay.com and login with these details. Go to ‘Activate now’ and change your password
and username to something memorable. Also, register your e-mail address here so we can send
receipts of payments and the school can notify you easily when payments need to be made.
That’s it, now you can start making hassle free, secure payments to your child’s school whenever
What cards can I use?
ParentPay accepts MasterCard and Visa credit cards and Maestro, Switch, Delta, Electron, Solo
and Visa debit cards.
Is it safe to make payments on the internet?
YES. In fact, it’s as safe to pay online with ParentPay as it is to use your credit card in a shop or
over the phone! ParentPay uses leading technology to process your credit/debit card
transactions securely. All communication with the bank is encrypted (jumbled up so no one else
can read it). Neither ParentPay nor the school have access to your card details and your card
details are never kept by ParentPay or the school.
How can I check that it’s secure?
Standard website addresses begin with ‘http’ whereas the address for a secure site will always
begin with ‘https’. You will also see a ‘padlock’ at the bottom right of the screen. Never enter your
card details or personal data on any web page whose address does not start with ‘https’.
What about our personal information?
ParentPay uses a very limited amount of information about you and your child solely for the
purpose of administering your account; we do not share or give information to any other
organisations. We operate under strict guidelines set out by the Data Protection Act 1998, which
ensures the protection and care of personal information. This means that any information you
give us electronically will only be used for the purpose that you intended.
ParentPay will NEVER contact you by phone, email or mail and ask you to divulge confidential
information like passwords or card numbers. If you are ever contacted by someone claiming to be
from ParentPay, please contact us immediately on
I don’t have a home PC so I can’t use ParentPay.
Actually you can. The school has a dedicated computer in the front reception area available for parents and we will be happy to show you how to use it.
