Online Payments - Thoughts Please
Our school is looking at implementing an Online Payment package for parents. We are a Primary school of around 320 pupils and are using SIMS, with SIMS dinner money and Schoolcomms as our communications package.
Governing Body have decided that we should use ParentPay as this is what our local secondary school use and will enable parents to 'see' any children they have in either school. They were under the impression that ParentPay would replace Schoolcomms on the comms side and as it includes a dinner money module, would also replace SIMS DinMon, which is of course, a charged extra, thus saving a bit of money.
I have reservations...... Is there anybody out there using ParentPay with the dinner money module that could give me some insight please (I've already worked out that it won't replace Schoolcomms for absence texting and attendance links). In particular what is ParentPay support like?
Many thanks for any thoughts you can pass on!
