We use an online payments system, SIMS Agora, which enables parents to pay for items such as school meals, trips, events, clubs and other school activities, in a safe and secure way.
The benefits of using SIMS Agora include:
the ability to make safe and secure online payments at any time of the day.
the ability to make payments via debit or credit card or in person via PayPoint or Post Office counters.
the ability to pre-pay for school meals, identify when payments are due and whether sufficient funds are available, and receive email notifications when a balance falls below a set amount.
the ability to pay for expensive items (e.g. school trips and clubs).
the ability for parents to view all of their children at our school though a single SIMS Agora account.
Getting started with SIMS Agora online payments
You will need a registration reference which can be obtained from the school office. If you have more than one child each will have their own registration reference and can be added to your account subsequently.
To access SIMS Agora you will need a Microsoft Account. You can use an existing account if you already have one, or create a new one online – they are free, very easy to setup and you can use any email address and password – to get a Microsoft Account please go to https://signup.live.com
