ParentPay Group, and its family of leading edtech products SIMS, ParentPay, Schoolcomms, Reading Cloud, Cypad and BlueRunner will be exhibiting at BETT 24-26 January 2024 on stand number SC50.  

BETT is one of the world’s leading education and edtech events. We’ll be joining other edtech leaders in London to meet with thousands of educators, administrators, and leaders to discuss the role technology plays in supporting their ambitions to run great schools and deliver an exceptional student experience. 

ParentPay Group has a simple mission: create the best technology that makes running great schools easier for educators, leaders, administrators, caterers, and librarians. To give back precious time and resources from admin, and deliver the data and insights needed to make important decisions faster that improve school and student achievement.  

We’ll be explaining how our technology supports the work of all school and college types, and showcasing the role the following products play specifically in this:  


SIMS – the leading cloud and on-premises management information system (MIS) for education. Everything you need in one place to make running a school easier plus the data and tools for planning, reporting, safeguarding and student monitoring. 

Payments and parental engagement

ParentPay – the cashless payments platform that makes it easy to collect, manage and report payments for meals, trips, clubs and more. 

Schoolcomms  – the all-in-one online solution for effective communication by schools with parents and carers. Plus an easy-to-use app for parents to keep connected with their child’s life at school. 

Catering management

Cypad– the digital kitchen management and meal ordering platform for caterers, local authorities, and schools. Including processes to support allergy management and student safeguarding. 

BlueRunner – the cashless, digital point-of-sale meal ordering and payment system for parents and students that improves meal uptake and supports planning to reduce waste and cost for caterers across primary, secondary and independent schools.   

Library management and literacy support

Reading Cloud – the library management system that supports literacy in schools, encourages independent learning, and builds parental engagement to promote reading for pleasure in students. 

As well as exhibiting, we’ll also be hosting side events with customers and partners exploring in detail how they use our technologies to support their school and student attainment plans. We’ll share more information on these soon. 

Finally, on January 25th at 13.45 we will host a panel of school leaders on the Teaching and Learning stage to share their practical tips for success in attendance and student attainment. They’ll discuss how data supports effective monitoring, early intervention and planning, and the role timely parental engagement plays. They’ll also look at the critical role technology plays in supporting this work and making it easier to take action successfully. You can sign up now on the BETT website here
