To reduce the workload at reception, the School no longer accepts cash payments for lunches and trips. Payments will only be accepted using Parent Pay online or at Paypoint Terminal


Madani Schools Federation now offers parents/carers and staff the ability to use the internet to make payments. Using a highly secure website, , with a unique user ID and password, parents/carers and staff are able to pay for Lunch meals (cashless system) using your credit and debit cards. This is a free service to parents/carers and staff and there are no additional charges for paying on the internet.


Parents will receive a letter containing their user ID and password (Letter sent home via post). If you haven´t done so already, you may now log in with your activation code to make your first payment for school meals.  We will soon start to add trips and other expenses to the system. 


By using Parent Pay you will help us reduce workloads for office staff, creating more time to lend to educational support and the smooth running of the school. It also ensures that all money transactions are safe and secure.


Everyone will benefit from our new payment facility. ParentPay is easy-to-use and will offer you the freedom to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available and that funds will reach school safely.


With ParentPay, parents will have their own 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, an email confirmation is sent to you, giving you the reassurance that the transaction has been successful.
