Engage parents to make the most of ParentPay
To ensure you get a successful launch, we provide promotional materials and ideas which schools use to help parents understand the benefits of using ParentPay.
ParentPay improves parental engagement by giving them a convenient online way of making payments – and by providing a channel through which you can communicate with them quickly and easily.
With ParentPay it becomes a simple automated process to keep parents up to date with everything school-related, by text, email or letter.
When you decide to launch ParentPay in your school, we can help you promote the benefits to parents by giving you:
- A step-by-step guide showing them how to log in, register and start using online payments
- Promotional and launch letter templates
- PowerPoint presentations and Flash demos for parents’ evenings
- Promotional posters and banners (there may be an additional cost involved).
What are the benefits to parents?
It’s an easy way to make and manage their school payments online
Children no longer need to carry cash into school, making it a safer place for everyone
Parents are notified when their balance needs topping up; it reduces debt and there are fewer payment errors and omissions
They get greater visibility over what their child is eating for lunch
Parents can still pay in cash via PayPoint if it’s more convenient for them to do so.
A truly cashless school meal solution removes the stigma around children receiving free school meals.
