Parent Pay - Parent Notice March 2017

In September 2013 Appleton Academy launched ParentPay, a convenient way to pay for school meals, trips, after school clubs and much more. ParentPay is an online system which provides a secure way to pay for services and, as a result, the Academy is a cash-free environment and cannot accept cash or cheques as payment by parents.

ParentPay offers you two different ways to pay:

  • For those of you with online access, ParentPay offers you the freedom to make payments whenever you want to, 24/7, safe in the knowledge that the technology used is secure and conforms to the highest standards available for web transactions. We provide log-in and account activation details to parents when their child starts at the Academy, but if you lose these you can contact our Finance Team via the main office
  • Alternatively, parents without online facilities can access the ParentPay network using PayPoint terminals which are available at most leading supermarket chains and many local convenience stores (you may already use these terminals to make payments for other utilities such as mobile phones, electricity or gas). PayPoint payments are recorded by ParentPay and can be tracked by logging into your ParentPay account online and viewing payment history.

The nearest accessible PayPoint terminals are based at: Delph Hill Newsagents & Off License, Woodside Road ▪ Costcutter, Huddersfield Road ▪ Co-Op, Wyke, Towngate ▪ Vimal Stores, Cleckheaton Road ▪ Asda, Wyke, Towngate.

For your peace of mind and security, none of your payment details will be held or stored by the school.
