Apps, Websites and Forms for parents

Our Communications App - Studybugs


We use Studybugs which you can either download on your phone or register on the Studybugs Website.  It is an efficient and secure system for reporting your child’s absence from school. All parent communications are also sent via Studybugs.  



Our Payment App - ParentPay


We use ParentPay for all payments to the school whether for school dinners, after school clubs, wraparound care or school trips. We will also ask you to give consent for school trips on ParentPay.  


We are unable to accept cash or cheques in the Office.  All purchases will need to be through ParentPay, so it is vital that you activate your ParentPay account.
