Parent Pay is a secure and convenient way to pay online for school meals, trips, Base Club and more. This system gives you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - safe in the knowledge that the technology uses the highest internet security available.
We no longer accept cash and cheque payments at Merton Park, however, making a payment is straightforward and once you have activated your account you can make online payments straight away. ParentPay holds a payment history for you to view at a later date; no card details are stored in any part of the system.
There are no transaction charges to parents for the use of ParentPay but the school will be charged for each transaction made by a parent. In order to keep these costs to a minimum please consider the following options when making a payment online.
- Pay for more than 1 item or more than 1 child in the same transaction = 1 charge for the school.
- Paying for children in more than 1 school divides the transaction charge between the schools (ParentPay is used in most Merton Schools and widely across the rest of the country)
- Debit Card charges are cheaper than Credit Cards
- Avoid using American Express and Diners Club as charges for these are very expensive.

If you have not received your activation letter or if you have any concerns about using the system, please contact Mrs Miller (our School Business Manager) and she will be able to advise you.
