The on-line payment service for the payment of lunch money, trips, events, tickets etc is called WisePay. This is a quick and easy to use system which is available 24/7 and allows you to make safe, secure payments on-line via your debit/credit card. We will continue to use MyEd for general communication but all emails concerning online payments e.g. confirmation of payment, low fund reminders, trip payments will be sent through the WisePay system.
You will receive a letter from us containing your log in details when your child visits school during transition day to register their fingerprint for the biometric system prior to commencing school in Year 7. Year 12 students who are new to the school will be issued with log in details when they commence their course in September. Once you have received your log in details please log on as soon as possible to ensure any problems can be dealt with before we go live. It is recommended that you change your password which will automatically change your username to your registered email address. This means that when you log in subsequently you will be required to enter your email address and new password. The original username provided by school will become redundant. There is a Help Guide which is accessible in the Online payments section of the parents page on the school website, but if you require assistance please do not hesitate to contact the school. It is key that visiting Year 7’s are reminded of the importance of this letter and that it comes home to their parent or carer.
There is only one account for each child so parents will be required to share log in details. In the event of parents residing at different addresses and a need for both to make payments, please contact the finance department at the school.
If you have more than one child at the school you will receive separate log in details for each child but parents are able to link the siblings so they are viewed under a single log in – please see the How to Guide on the website. N.B. Accounts must be linked from the youngest sibling.
Check your Junk/Spam folders and add the email address email@example.com to your contact favourites or approved sender list to ensure that any WisePay communications are displayed in your main newsfeed.
Ensure you use an up-to-date internet browser such as Internet Explorer v9 and above. Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome are recommended over the default browser with some smart phones and tablets.
All parent accounts will automatically be set up to receive text and emails. If you do not wish to receive one or both forms of communication you will need to change your settings in your WisePay Account section on the home page – see help guide on the website.
You will be able to change your contact details in WisePay but it is imperative that you also inform the school so our internal records are up to date and in particular so that you will continue to be able to receive MyEd correspondence. If you wish the school to make the changes in WisePay on your behalf please let us know this when you are submitting any contact detail changes to us. Remember you won’t be able to log into WisePay using any new email address until we have made the change in the WisePay system for you.
