ParentPay for caterers

ParentPay provides dinner money management and meal administration for caterers.

Dinner money collection for both primary and secondary schools is easy with ParentPay. Online payments are immediately credited to the relevant account and can then be allocated directly to the school or the caterer.

A range of detailed reports will show:

  • How much dinner money has been collected
  • How many school meals have been paid for (or bought)
  • Attendance for fixed priced meals
  • Who is eligible for free school meals, including Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) and who has taken them up
  • Till data that gives you visibility over menu choices
  • Online menu bookings.

You can also monitor outstanding payments, debts, alerts and payment reminders.
