Parent Pay

ParentPay - our online payment service


At Cranford Primary School we use a cashless payment system called Parent Pay to pay for school dinners. Parents are issued with a secure online account which is activated using a unique user name and password.


Please remember that all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 may receive a free school lunch in accordance with the Government’s scheme to provide universal infant free school meals.


ParentPay will be our preferred method of making payments to school.
