Parent Pay

Parent Pay - our new online payment service


We are pleased to announce that from September 2021, we will  be accepting payments online for items such as dinner money and school trips. Using a secure website called Parent Pay, you will be able to pay online using your credit / debit card or continue to make cash payments at Pay Point stores. Parent Pay will be our preferred method of making payments to school as from September, we will no longer be accepting cash payment at Heath Mount Primary School.

  • Parent Pay offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest Internet security available.
  • You will have a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password; you will be prompted to change these, and to keep them safe and secure.  If you have more than one child at our school, you can merge their accounts to create one login for all your children.
  • Making a payment is straightforward and Parent Pay holds a payment history for you to view at a later date; no card details are stored in any part of the system.  Once you have activated your account you can make online payments straight away.
