The Barlow RC High School is a cashless school and we ask all parents / carers to only use our e-payment method to pay for dinner money, trips, activities and other items such as House T-shirts, revision guides and lockers etc. This can be done online using a very secure website called ParentPay or in cash at local stores where you see the PayPoint logo. To access Parent Pay and for further information on PayPoint click on the logos below:
When new students join the school, parents / carers will be issued with a secure on-line account with a unique user ID and password that can be changed to something they will more easily remember and, if appropriate, accounts can be merged for two or more children.
