Parent pay

Payments to Schools
We are currently implementing a system which accepts payments online, using a secure website called ParentPay, for items such as school meals (primary schools only), trips and uniforms.   The ParentPay system is easy to use and offers parents the freedom to make payments by debit or credit card, whenever they like, ensuring that monies reach schools safely and securely.
 
The system helps to remove the costs associated with having to manage cash securely on school premises and it frees up time to better support the smooth running of the school.   We will of course continue to accept cash and cheque payments as necessary but we do hope that parents will use the new online facility.   The more parents use the service, the greater the benefit to the school, the parents and the pupils alike.
 
A letter will be issued to you when the system is being implemented in the school.   This will contain more information about the system and your activation code to enable you to set up your ParentPay account ready for the year ahead.

Information for parents from National Parent Forum of Scotland

We have been asked to make you aware of the following information:

The National Parent Forum of Scotland has been working with Skills Development Scotland as part of the programme of work underway in Developing the Young Workforce.

We are pleased to have produced some tailored information for parents, as part of our successful "in a nutshell" series, which covers the new Careers Education Standard launched at SLF 2015. This new nutshell will supply parents with basic information about the initial role of this programme in schools and signpost them to where they can get some more information if they need it.

This nutshell has been produced in hard copy with one for each child in primary, secondary and ASN schools and deliveries will start w/c 11-1-16.
The link to the nutshell on the NPFS website is

Primary 6 Rugby

Primary 6 really enjoyed working with representatives from Dundee Wasps Rugby Team. The children learned the basic passing skills associated with rugby. They then put these new skills to the test as they played a match!
