Card Payments Now Available

Pay the way that suits you best

Another way to pay for school meals – card payments now available

From Tuesday 8th December students can either pay using ParentPay account or use their own debit card to make purchases at the till at morning break and lunch time. They can use their card to pay contactless or chip & pin on a Barclaycard card reader. These purchases will not appear on your ParentPay account.

Please see our tariff on NTC / schools’ websites. The lunchtime offer includes meals packaged at £2.25 along with additional individual items.

ParentPay and free school meals allowance

Is your child eligible for free school meals? If so, your child’s account is credited with £2.25
each day they are in school. Purchases over £2.25 are not covered by the free school meal
allowance. Parents should always check ParentPay on a regular basis to ensure your account is in credit and that you know how much is being spent each day.

If you require activation details, a QR code or Pin Number, please email
parentpay@northtyneside.gov.uk giving details of your child’s name and school.

Auto top-up assists parents and carers in ensuring their child’s school meal balance is
always in credit. It does so by allowing you to set a minimum balance which, when breached
automatically credits your child’s meal balance by a fixed amount using a balance transfer
payment.

In order to use auto top-up, you are required to set up the bank transfer facility on your
Parentpay account. As soon as this is authorised and completed by your bank, you will be
able to use the auto top-up facility.
