ParentPay Benefits

How can ParentPay help your Local Authority? 

Changes in lifestyle have led parents and carers to look for ways to make cashless payments in school.  Parents no longer expect to make school payments by cash or cheque.   For many this is the only time they use their cheque book.  

Creating cashless schools has many benefits including easy payments to schools.  Encouraging cash free schools can:

  • Help with school administration
  • Take pressure off school finance staff
  • Allow schools to redirect resources
  • Give easier management of parent debt
  • Give clear, concise reporting on income streams
  • Improve financial reconciliation in schools
  • Reduce the social stigmas linked with free school meals
  • Support the healthy eating agenda
  • Help reduce bullying and anti-social behaviour
  • Assist in reducing crime amongst young people
  • Meet the growing demands of parents for online school payments
  • Reduce the number of errors and fraudulent opportunities
  • Reduce cash held in schools and increase staff security
  • Assist schools in meeting the FMSiS assessment
