Dear Parents and Carers,

Coming soon: An easier way to make online payments to school with ParentMail!

As you know, we try very hard to keep parents regularly informed about what’s going on at St Joseph’s, however, sending paper letters home about school trips and payments can be rather ‘hit and miss’ with letters sometimes going astray on the way and some parents not knowing the cost of the trip. We are also increasingly aware of the substantial cost and environmental impact associated with the amount of paper and photocopying involved and the administrative time it takes to bank the payments.

We are pleased to announce that from 14th June 2018, St Joseph’s Camberwell Catholic Schools’ Federation will be introducing a new secure online payment service called ParentMail which allows parents or carers to make payments such as school trips and clubs to our school using your debit or credit card whenever and wherever you like, safe in the knowledge that the technology used is one of the highest internet security available. We appreciate that many people now pay for things online and we feel that ParentMail gives parents a more flexible and convenient way to pay for these activities.

Registering with ParentMail is very easy! All we need from you is to complete the ParentMail Data Capture Form attached to this letter which asks for you to provide us with your current email address and contact details. I am aware that some of you may have given your email addresses on our school admissions form when your child first began at our school, however, these may have changed. Please be assured that ParentMail® is registered with the Data Protection Registrar and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation. Also, with regards to the payments you make, your bank statement will display either the school name (St Joseph’s) or ParentMail, dependent on your payment method. We will inform you about the items you need to pay through ParentMail, and you will be able to pay electronically, using credit or debit cards as well as PayPal and PayPoint.

Once registered, if you have an Android or Apple smartphone, we would highly recommend you download the free ParentMail App so that you can make easy, online payments on the go. To do this, simply search for “ParentMail” in your App/Play store. When the school goes live, ParentMail will send you an email so that you can confirm your account. When you receive this, please follow the instructions in the message to activate your account.

For those parents who would like some assistance in setting up an email address or downloading the app, the school office will be able to provide some help. Please feel free to ask a member of staff.

If you need any additional information or assistance, please visit the help site: www.parentmail.co.uk/help/parenthelp/

Yours sincerely

Anita Gallagher

Executive Headteacher
