The Laurel Academy has introduced ParentPay, which is an online payment system for schools.
As from the 4th November 2019, the Academy will become cashless. All future payments for dinner money, trips, replacement planners and ties must now be paid for through Parent Pay.
ParentPay allows parents to pay quickly and securely for school meals, trips, activities, ties and replacement planners via our online payment portal ParentPay https://www.parentpay.com/
ParentPay accounts can be easily-topped up online by debit or credit card, or through local stores where you see the Pay Point logo. https://consumer.paypoint.com/
How does ParentPay help you?
ParentPay gives you the freedom to make payments to school whenever and wherever you like. The system helps with budgeting; payments are immediate, there is no waiting for cheques to clear and payments for school trips can be made by instalments up to the due date. Each student has a unique account where you can enter payments for catering and other services provided by the academy. Parents can also access detailed usage which will allow you to see what your child has eaten each day and how much they have spent.
How does ParentPay help the academy?
It reduces paper waste, as well as the administrative time spent on banking procedures and the amount of money held on school premises. It helps us improve school-home communication with its integrated email/SMS messaging centre. It allows for easy and quick refunds to be made back to the payment card, which is beneficial for both families and the academy.
