ParentPay is a very secure website used by a high proportion of schools.
Jack Hunt School implemented ParentPay in October 2015 in order for parents/carers to have better oversight of the monies they are paying to the school; to have the option of paying by debit or credit card and to be able to make payments at a time of their choosing. This helps the school by reducing the amount of cash on the premises.
Uniforms remain purchasable from Chromasports and Trophies.
ParentPay holds an electronic record of your payments to view at a later date. Once you have activated your account, you can make online payments straight away.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school at firstname.lastname@example.org during term time, if you need assistance.
