Perth & Kinross Council advises their Schools to use ParentPay to collect school income – children no longer need to bring cash into school.
ParentPay is the School’s online payment system, enabling families to easily pay for meals, trips, clubs, activities, uniforms, music lessons, fees and more.
Families simply load an amount on to their ParentPay account online – by debit or credit card.
Here at St Dominic’s, we also use ParentPay as form of communication for reminders, letters and our weekly newsletters.

How to set up ParentPay Email Alerts
It can be difficult to keep track of balances, payments and notifications. ParentPay gives Payers the opportunity to set up email alerts. There is no charge for email alerts.
Email alerts will only be sent to the email address used as your username.
Setting up alerts
1. From within your ParentPay account, navigate to Communication > Alert settings
2. From the list of alerts that can be set up, select which alerts you would like to be receive by email.
Our school allows payers to set a balance threshold to be set for balance associated items such as school meals. You can then choose to receive email alerts once the balance falls below the selected threshold.
New item/ notification alerts
Select to receive alerts when your child is added to a new trip or item for payment. Alerts can be set individually for each child attached to your ParentPay account.
3. Select Save.
