Online Payments

At Ratby Primary School parents use ‘Parent Pay’, an online payment system which allows parents to pay quickly and securely for school meals, trips and activities, music lessons, swimming lessons etc.

You simply top-up your ParentPay account online  by debit or credit card, or in cash through PayPoint stores. Payment by standing order and faster payments will be available soon. Your ParentPay balance can be used immediately to pay for any of your children’s items at any school using ParentPay.

Once you are up and running you can:

View your balance, top up online with debit or credit card, set up a standing order or faster payment* or pay by cash through PayPoint

Get alerted by text or email if your balance gets low or when you have something new you can pay for like a school trip or out of school clubs, lessons or other activities.

Request daily spend limits, your school can set a sensible daily limit so your child can only spend what you’re aware of – especially useful in a secondary school canteen.

Payments are received safely by the school, meaning you do not have to send your child to school with cash again, money doesn’t get lost and is spent on its intended purpose.

For information regarding a ParentPay account please speak to Mrs Tipper, Mrs Fitzjohn or Mrs Page in the School Office.
