The Leigh Academy has introduced a more convenient way to pay for educational visits, clubs and much more online, using the secure service Parent Pay.
Parent Pay is live at The Academy and we are now working towards no longer accepting cash and cheque payments over £10.00. Parents and carers who need to continue making payments by cash may do so using the Pay Point network at local convenience stores.
Making secure payments online using your credit or debit card
Parent Pay offers 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.
All parents/carers have a secure online account which is activated using a unique username and password and will be prompted to change these, and to keep them safe and secure. If more than one child is on roll at The Academy, accounts can be merged to create one login for all children.
Making a payment is straightforward and Parent Pay holds a payment history which can be viewed at a later date; no card details are stored in any part of the system. Once the account is activated online payments can be made immediately.
PayPoint payments are recorded by Parent Pay and can be viewed by logging into the individual Parent Pay account and viewing payment history online.
Educational Visits and activity information letters carry a unique barcode which will allow parents/carers to make cash payments at a local PayPoint store.
If you have not already done so please take a look at www.parentpay.com where there are further details about how to use the payment system.
All parents/carers have been issued with a personal secure login details from The Academy, however if this has been misplaced or not received or if you have any questions about using the site or making cash payments via Pay Point, please contact Mrs O’Connor in the Main Admin Office on 01322 620503.
Your support in using Parent Pay will help The Academy enormously – thank you.
