Communicating quickly and efficiently with the parents/carers of our children is of paramount importance to us. SCOpay allows the school to send information home via emails and text messages more cost effectively and securely than paper copies. It is excellent for communicating urgent information for example; the cancellations of after school clubs or delayed coach trips by informing you of any changes direct to your mobile phone.
This is a very useful system as up to three adults can be linked to any child meaning parents, parents who no longer live with their children, grandparents and childminders can register to be kept informed of what is happening in school.
* No more lost or misplaced school letters as you can review all sent communications on one easy feed - so they don’t get buried in a busy email box.
Overleigh St Mary’s is a cashless school and as of September 2017 have only accepted online payments for Cosmic Club and In House Sport Clubs. The advantages of paying online puts the parent/carer in control. You can access it at any time, track exactly how much you have paid, see any outstanding amounts and be refunded instantly back onto your debit or credit card.
You will be able to track your child’s account balance for the school canteen (copies of the menus are on the school website). Where money is owing to the school by you, a notification will be sent to you via an email, when you log on you can view the payment requests available to you.
This system removes the need to send cash or cheques in envelopes with your child minimising the risk of lost money, it makes it convenient to pay any forgotten last minute payments from anywhere without having to come to the school office. Please note that your card details are not visible or stored by the school, all card information is processed only by Barclaycard.
Please ensure that the school has your current email address and mobile number so they can regsiter you.
