Parents and schools like Schoolcomms Payments as it makes paying for everything from school meals to school trips simple, fast, safe and accessible anytime 24-7.
“Schoolcomms has made my life a whole lot easier! Contacting parents by text is so much easier and parents love it too! Using the dinner money module saves so much time for both myself and parents and is much safer than children carrying money with them to school.”
Yvonne Woodward, Business Manager,
Crook Primary School, Durham
Schoolcomms Payments links seamlessly with SIMS as well as leading accounting and catering systems including SIMS Dinner Money, Pebble, Private Funds Manager (PFM) and cashless catering systems including LunchHound.
Instant Bank Transfer: Low cost, fixed transaction charges
Our NEW Instant Bank Transfer payment option has a fixed transaction cost of just 16p. This is not only half the cost of a typical debit card transaction but means that you can fix your costs.
‘School Gateway': parent portal and new smartphone app
School Gateway website and app shows parents the payment requests relating to their children. If they have more than one child at school or children at another Schoolcomms school, they will see requests relating to each of their children – a really popular feature for parents.
Using this simple, effective and well-designed approach we can have you up and running in no time – collecting money for school trips, meals, after-school clubs, uniform and more.
Features of the system include the ability to allocate subsidies such as Pupil Premium funds and to gain parental consent for school trips at the point of payment.
