Handbooks and Guides
This handbook contains important information for parents, such as the school calendar, school curriculum, school contacts and staffing details.
WisePay is a secure online payment service that allows parents and carers to make payments to the School. Payments can be made online via debit or credit card for items including:
- School Lunches
- Trips and Visits
The system is made available to parents as a more convenient alternative to cheques and cash.
Once logged in, parents are able to review past payments and account balances – particularly useful when paying in instalments.
The School runs regular parent focus groups and learning walks to ensure the views of parents are heard and actioned upon. The latest outcomes from our annual survey of parent views is shown below.
