At Grange Park Junior School we provide a more convenient way to pay for school meals, trips by using a secure service called Parent Pay.
Parent Pay is shortly live and therefore the school office will not be accepting cash and cheque payments making the school a cash-free environment. Parents who need to continue making payments by cash may do so using the Pay Point network at local convenience stores. Please note there is an initial £2.00 charge for the Pay Point card.

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.
