To remove all cash and cheques from school we are asking all parents to only use our e-payment method to pay in advance for dinner money, trips, after school clubs etc. This can be done online using a very secure website called ParentPay.
Already have a ParentPay account? If you already have a ParentPay account, either with our school or another ParentPay school, you can simply login to that account and add your other children via the Add a child tab on your home page. You will need the below activation username and password to do this.
New to ParentPay? You have a secure online account, activated using a unique activation username and password (provided by Slingsgby School); you will be prompted to change these and to keep them safe and secure as your Username and Password for future logins.
If you have two or more children at a ParentPay school, you only need to activate one account to create your ‘main account’ and then add your other children via the Add a child tab on your home page. Please visit www.parentpay.com and activate your account via the Account login area on the home page of the site.
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.
Parent Pay have recently introduced Bank Transfer which enables parents and carers to pay for any school item directly from their bank account and it is guaranteed by the Direct Debit service. There is no need to add or store debit or credit card details in ParentPay but it does require a Direct Debit mandate to be authorised by your bank before payments can be collected (up to 3 working days normally or 6 working days for initial setup). This allows parents and carers who do not have credit facilities to make online payments and enables new automated payment processes (e.g. auto top-up). As part of the Bank Transfer facility, Auto Top-Up assists parents and carers in ensuring their child’s school meal balance is always in credit. It does so by allowing a payer to set a minimum balance threshold which, when breached, automatically credits the meal balance by a fixed amount (payer configurable) using a Balance Transfer payment. In order to use Auto Top-Up, payers are required to set up and submit a Bank Transfer Direct Debit mandate. Once complete the payer will have the option to use the auto top-up feature. Please see the link to the video and written guidance below.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school office if you need assistance. Your support in using ParentPay will help the school enormously, thank you.
