ParentPay Benefits

Helping school, parents and pupils with a school online payment system

Parents no longer expect to make school payments by cash or cheque. For many this is the only time they use their cheque book.  

Many schools are under pressure with increasing workloads and reducing budgets. ParentPay can help improve efficiency while achieving cost savings and demonstrating real benefits to the whole school community.

Creating cashless schools has many benefits for schools, parents and pupils.  Encouraging cash free schools can:

  • Help with school administration
  • Take pressure off school finance staff
  • Allow schools to redirect resources
  • Help schools manage parent debt
  • Provide clear, concise income reporting
  • Improve financial reconciliation in schools
  • Reduce the social stigmas linked with free school meals
  • Support the healthy eating agenda
  • Meet the demands of parents for online school payments
  • Help reduce bullying and anti-social behaviour
  • Assist in reducing crime amongst young people
  • Reduce errors and ensure an audit trail is available
  • Reduce cash held in schools and increase staff security
  • Assist schools in meeting the FMSiS assessment
