Here at Winter Gardens Academy we use ParentMail to communicate to parents and to allow parents to pay for school dinners, breakfast clubs, trips etc. This online payment service allows you to pay for school items on your smartphone, tablet or computer, or by using PayPal, making the payment process easier than ever before.

ParentMail is safe and secure, as  it doesn’t store credit or debit card details and works in the same way as other large retailers who accept online payments.

ParentMail allows you to:

  • Make payments from as little as £1.00 into your child’s account.
  • See the balance on your child’s account.
  • Pay on the go with the handy iPhone app.
  • Use PayPoint, PayCash and PayPal as payment options.
  • Be alerted when you need to pay/top-up – no more forgetting!
  • Receive important or emergency messages immediately.
  • Eliminate the need for your child to carry cash into the school.
