We are really excited to be launching an app called ParentMail over the coming weeks that will help to improve our communication with parents/carers.
Many schools use this successfully to send newsletters, trip information, and parent’s evening appointments amongst many others. Once set up we intend to extend this service to include parent pay to enable you to pay for dinner money, stay and play and trips etc.
An easier way for you to make school payments (start date to be confirmed)
We will be using +Pay on ParentMail – an online payment service which allows you to pay for school items quickly and easily on your smartphone, tablet or computer.
We will inform you about items you need to pay through ParentMail, and you will be able to pay electronically, using credit or debit cards as well as PayPal and PayPoint.
If you have an Android or Apple smartphone, we would highly recommend you download the free ParentMail App so that you can make easy, online payments on the go. To do this, simply search for “ParentMail” in your App store.
If you do not wish to make payments online, you can of course, continue to make cash payments as usual until the system is established.
Please note, your bank statement will display either the school name or ParentMail, dependent on your payment method.
If you need any additional information or assistance, please use the help site: www.parentmail.co.uk/help/parenthelp/ or please contact Miss McGee or Mrs Lee in the school office.
It is vital that your mobile contact number is up to date with school and helpful if you have an email address. We are aware that it will take a number of weeks to set up so we will continue with paper copies of letters etc. until we are up and running.
