Helping school caterers collect and manage dinner money 

ParentPay can help with your dinner money collection and school meal administration.  Online payments make dinner money management easier and will reduce time spent on school meal administration. 

Using our system either you or the school can manage account balances, meal numbers, free school meals and monitor debts.  The online central reporting will help you keep on top of school payment information. 

Dinner money collection for school caterers

Primary and secondary school dinner money collection is easy with ParentPay as we have links with all school cashless catering systems.  This ensures that any online payment is immediately credited to the relevant account.

Payments can then be allocated directly to the school or caterer who can both access a range of reports.  These will show the amount of dinner money collected for each school as well as meal number information including free school meals and staff meals.

Dinner money management and school meal administration

ParentPay Dinner Money helps school offices with their school meal administration by providing tools to manage every aspect of the service.  Primary schools can link this information to school attendance data.  Meal patterns, data from tills or online meal bookings can be used to manage each child’s account. 

The ParentPay system links to the school MIS, to get the latest free school meals data and then eligibility is applied automatically.  Other features include debt monitoring and alerts and payment reminders and letters.  You can even display your menus for parents to view online.
