Parent Pay

To access your child's ParentPay Account click here


At King Ethelbert, we run a cashless system for catering, trips, equipment, etc. All payments are to be made via ParentPay, and no cash should be brought into school.

In the rare and extenuating circumstances that cash does have to be brought onto the school site, it should be taken directly to the Finance office, in a named and sealed envelope where a receipt will be given. However, this should only occur when pre-agreed with the Finance team (via form tutors if necessary). No cash/payments of any sort should be handed in anywhere except the Finance office, this includes to Pupil Services.

If you have forgotten your ParentPay password, please re-set it using the 'Forgotten Password' link on the login page.

Your child's first lunch/ID card is free, however replacements are chargeable at £3.50 each. New cards should be paid for via ParentPay and collecting from the IT office by your child. If cards are lost/misplaced, please let the Finance office know as soon as is reasonably possible (the information can be passed to us via Pupil Services or another teacher) – this allows us to cancel that card to avoid the money on it being lost. Cards can be reactivated if found at a later date.

If you have any queries regarding ParentPay, please contact the Finance office in the first instance, using the email address
