Parent Pay

What does Parent Pay do?

  • It enables you to pay for dinner money through a highly secure, payment site.
  • Gives you a history of all the payments you have made.
  • It allows the merging of accounts for those with 2 or more children.
  • It e-mails a receipt of your payment to you. 

How does Parent Pay help you?

  • Parent pay gives you the freedom to make payments to school whenever and wherever you like.
  • It stops you having to write cheques or search for cash to send to school.
  • It gives you peace of mind that your payment has been made safely and securely.
  • It helps with budgeting; payments are immediate, there is no waiting for cheques to clear.

ParentPay is quick and easy to use.

All parents have been sent an activation letter to enable you to set up your parent pay account. The activation letter contains a personal activation username and password to enable you to log on. During the activation process you will be guided through changing your username and password to something more memorable. You can also merge your accounts if you have more than one child at Rivington and Blackrod High School.

Biometric information is information about someone’s physical or behavioural characteristics that can be used to identify them. There are many possible biometrics, including for example, a digital photograph or fingerprint.  As part of our identity management systems, we currently record a biometric measurement taken from a finger, but not a fingerprint image. The information is stored in a highly secure database which is only used by the school to confirm who is using a range of services.  In future we may look to use other biometric services if required.

The system we use gives us a secure database which holds biometric data.  This can be used for a variety of services, meaning we store the least amount of data possible - it also helps to ensure that we don't have a loss of data.  The data that is held cannot be used by any other agency for any other purpose.  The school will not use the biometric information for any purpose other than that stated above and will store the biometric information collected securely in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998. The school will not share this information with anyone else and will not unlawfully disclose it to any other person.

Current Legislation - The Protection of Freedoms Act  2012

This legislation requires schools to:

  • Inform parents about the use of the biometric systems in the school and explain what applications use biometrics.
  • Receive written permission from one parent if the school is to continue processing biometrics for their child.
  • Allow children to choose an alternative way of being identified if they wish.
  • Children under 18 who do not have permission will not be able to use existing or new biometrics when using services in the school.

 If you do not wish your child to use the biometric system or your child chooses to use an alternative form of identification, such as an Identity Card, we will provide reasonable alternative arrangements that allow them to access current and future services.  Please note that when he/she leaves the school, or if for some other reason he/she ceases to use the biometric system, his/her biometric data will be permanently deleted.
