ParentPay Debit on Accounts (Juniors)

Dear Parents and Carers in the Junior school,


So many of our children really enjoy and benefit from having a hot buttered piece of toast at break-time which appears as a debit on ParentPay. Over the past few years, the popularity of toast at break-time has increased which shows that it is really valued by the children. In order for us to keep providing this service, we need to ensure that sufficient credit is on the account by 8.30 am each day.


As a school, we are working hard to avoid any debt, particularly during a challenging financial time for us all and to continue to provide toast at a very reasonable price. In order to keep prices low, we need to reduce administration time taken by the school for late payments to the ParentPay accounts as this could potentially increase toast prices moving forwards. 


In order for us to keep running this service and offering toast at £0.25, please help us to reduce Finance admin time by ensuring that the credit is on the account in advance. As ever, if there is a difficulty regarding payments, please do come and talk to either myself or our Finance Officer, Mrs Chakmak and we will advise and support as best we can.


Thank you for your ongoing support,


Mr Chamberlain

Head Teacher
