Colmers is a cashless school. We use ParentMail for all payment transactions. ParentMail is an online payment service which allows you to pay for school items quickly and easily on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Cash and cheques will only be accepted in exceptional circumstances, and so we urge all parents and carers to use Parentmail as the preferred method of making payments.


We strongly encourage all parents to download the app to get the best advantage from ParentMail with notifications right to your phone whenever we send information out.

If you’re using the App, it means you can…

· Receive less paper

· Receive notifications instead of text messages (saving the school money)

· Receive instant notifications of newsletters and information

· Book appointments for Parent & Carer’s Evenings

· Pay for lunches as well as other paid items.
