Finance – How to pay


Selwood Academy is now a cashless environment, we no longer accept cash or cheques. This decision has been made to protect pupils and staff against various risks of having cash and cheques around school.

There are now only two ways to make payments. These are Parent Pay and Pay Point.

Parent Pay has been in place at Selwood Academy for a number of years and is our preferred method pf payment. It is an online payment service enabling parents and carers to make payment online for items such as school trips, music lessons and for topping up money onto lunch accounts. Using a secure website called ParentPay you will be able to pay online using your credit or debit card.

Further information and the link for the Parent Pay website are on the left.

Pay Point is the only other method of payment and this allows for cash to be used. If you wish to pay via cash then we can create a barcode that can be used in a number of local shops. On all trip permission slips  there is an option for Pay Point please select this and the Finance office will produce a barcode specific to your child and the trip or activity, this can then be taken to a local shop and paid for over the counter.

If you wish to use Pay Point for topping up lunch accounts then please contact the school on 01373 462 798 and we can produce a card for you to keep with the barcode on to allow for numerous top ups.

Please note that Pay Point payments can take up to 48 hours to reach Selwood.
