ParentPay – My Account update



Parents should now have their own mobile friendly My Account, with one balance in one account, for all the family – making it easy to budget for school payments, helping to increase uptake for caterers and schools.

Guidance for Parents (and supporting schools)

The main change for parents is the introduction of a Top-up and pay process. Download the My Account guides for parents:

 My Account General Guide (payments for meals, trips etc)

Important: To pay for school meals or other items, parents will need to click ‘Pay for items’ after topping-up My Account (please see image below)

Please be assured all meal credit added to the system, prior to the launch of My Account, can still be found in the child’s ‘Dinner money balance’.

The following guidance explains this simple process – please use this to support parents.

ParentPay have also released a guide for help on topping up accounts which you can download here.

Euro 2016 Charity Day


As England play Wales on Thursday afternoon, we have decided to have a non-uniform day in order to support the team. It will also be optional for students to watch the game, but the following rules for the day will apply:

Students will be asked to donate a minimum of £1 to come to school dressed in non-uniform which is Euro 2016-based on Thursday: football shirts, white shirts for England, red shirts for Wales. We would like to students to bring their pound in for this non-uniform day before Thursday if possible, so that we can add the money to the totalizer before the game begins.

Students are also able to buy tickets to watch the game on the big screen from 1.30pm in the Venue. These tickets are available from Mr Thomas for £1.

All money will be donated to Friends of Serenity, which is a non-profit organisation who aim to preserve and protect the health of sick, pregnant women and those who have suffered a miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death.

At Rhyddings we have been touched by the experience of one of our staff’s family, and would very much like to donate to the charity in memory of Katie-Rae.
