Sydenham is a cashless school which means that payments for items such as lunch, school trips, visits, music lessons and after school clubs are made online. You are able to pay online by debit/ credit card using a secure website called ParentPay.
ParentPay is easy-to-use and offers you the freedom to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24/7 - safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available and that funds will reach school safely.
Parents have a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password; making a payment using your credit or debit card is straightforward and ParentPay holds an electronic record of all payments for you to view at a later date. When you make a payment you will receive an email confirmation that the transaction has been successful.
