At Quay Academy we use an online payment system to enable parents to pay for school dinners, trips, music lessons, clubs and more.

ParentPay is a secure payment system which is used to streamline the payment processes and to remove all cash and cheques from our school.  
You will receive a letter detailing how to log on to ParentPay and activate your account. If you have more than one child at Quay, you will only need to create one account to manage all payments.
What can you do with ParentPay? 
  • School Dinners – Dinners are booked and paid through ParentPay. Please ensure all accounts are kept upto date and do not go in arrears. If your child is Free School Meals or Universal Free School Meals you can book school dinner and will not be charged.
  • Trips – Pay for school trips through ParentPay. We will send out invitations to you, where you can respond with your parental consent and provide medical information. 
  • Clubs – You’ll receive advanced notification of clubs, so you can secure a place for your child, book and pay early.  
If you do not have access to the internet please speak to the office who will be able to provide you with a ParentPay payment card to make payments at any PayPoint shop.
