Helping you keep children fed

Key offerings:


Improve engagement with school meals and help develop healthy eating habits

Digital meal management solutions designed specifically for primary schools – including online parent and in-classroom meal pre-ordering, nutritional information, digital special diet and allergy management and more, all in one cloud-based system.


Increase your secondary school’s meal uptake, efficiency and revenue

Utilise advanced point of sale services, meal pre-ordering and back-office analytics so you have absolute clarity over your meal provision. BlueRunner’s app is also designed for students, with the ability to add bespoke logos and colous to the app interface to reflect the required branding.


Revolutionise your school kitchen operation

Managing a catering service with multiple kitchens can be a logistical nightmare for caterers. Streamline the process with digital kitchen management – get paperless reporting, stock and staff management, recipes, deliveries and more, all from one fully centralised tablet-based solution.

ParentPay Group has long been at the forefront of the EdTech sector. Across the UK and mainland Europe, more than 30,000 schools and 8 million parents trust us on payments, communication meal and information management systems.

Acquiring Cypad in 2017 and BlueRunner in 2022 further solidified the Group’s meal and kitchen management offering. This extends existing meal management platforms with additional functionality for meal ordering in secondary schools as well as rewards, loyalty and catering booking for  education and hospitality sector institutions. The ParentPay Group Catering division demonstrates our unified commitment to improving the service we provide to customers via our products.
