ParentPay – our new online payment service
We are pleased to inform you that Cardinal Hume Catholic School now has the facility to accept online payments for school meals, trips and other school activities. Using a secure website called ParentPay you are able to pay online using your credit or debit card.
Within ParentPay you are able to access the extended facilities which allows parents to view what your son/daughter has purchased each day. We will introduce trip payments on ParentPay for new visits throughout the academic year.
ParentPay is easy to use and offers you the freedom to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available and that funds will reach school safely.
We have decided to stagger the implementation of this service to ensure ease of use and will begin by offering Year 7 parents the opportunity of using this service week commencing Monday 5th October 2015.
Parents have a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password; making a payment using your credit or debit card is straightforward and no card details are stored on the system or are accessible by the school or ParentPay. ParentPay holds an electronic record of all online payments for you to view at a later date. When you make a payment, an e-mail confirmation is sent to you, giving you reassurance that the transaction has been successful.
In addition, ParentPay offers you the ability to set automated email/SMS reminders ensuring you never miss a payment.
