ParentPay - Online System

ParentPay - Online System


Our Lady of Lourdes is a completely 'cashless school' - instead we use an online system called ParentPay to book school lunches, make payments and give parental consent for a number of school events. This system will not only allow parents to book and pay for school meals and trips etc. but can also be used to give permission for children to take part in school trips and after school activities. This means no more hunting for loose change and no more searching around in the morning to sign a permission slip for a trip your child has just remembered.


The service is available 24 hours a day. We know how busy being a parent can be, and we hope this helps make things a little more convenient.

ParentPay our communication system

Our Lady of Lourdes uses the ParentPay online system to send you emails to keep you informed about our school and your child. On occasion we may also send an urgent text, if appropriate to do so.

It is therefore very important for all parents/carers to activate a ParentPay account, even if you do not pay for school lunches - otherwise you will not be able to receive any information from the school.

ParentPay - for booking school lunches

You can use ParentPay to view our tasty school menu at home and to discuss meal choices with your child. You can then use the system to book them their choice of school lunch. You are even able to book lunches up to 3 weeks in advance!

If your child would like a school lunch on any given day, you will need to book their lunch on the ParentPay system before 8am that day. Don't worry if you forget to book before 8am, the school kitchen will still be able to provide your child with a hot jacket potato, with a choice of filling.

ParentPay - online payments

ParentPay provides a safe, secure and easy way to pay online for school items such as school meals, trips and other events or activities.

  • ParentPay allows you make online payments to the school whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Makes it easy to make payments for school items by debit or credit card.
  • Reduces the need for children to carry cash to school.
  • Peace of mind that payments are made safely and securely to the school.

  • Yes – ParentPay is safe and secure and tested for the highest security.
