Parental Portals

At Priory School, we use a number of carefully selected portals to provide online services to our parents. These enable secure and reliable services such as cashless payment systems, secure communication and school event booking to be delivered to our parents on their internet enabled device.

Cashless Payments

Paying for school trips, school meals, after school clubs and extended care is done using our online payment system ParentPay. When your child starts at Priory School, a ParentPay account is set up for them. On your child’s first day, you will be issued an activation letter with details on how to access your child’s account through the ParentPay website by creating an account linked to your personal email address. If for any reason you have not received these details, please contact the School Office. If you have more than one child at Priory, you can access their ParentPay accounts through the same login – you do not need separate login details for each child. You can also link your children at other schools who use ParentPay to your own account.

You can access ParentPay by clicking the picture below:

SIMS Learning Gateway

SIMS Learning Gateway allows you to log into your personal account as a parent to view information on your child(ren)’s attendance, view your child(ren)’s school report and update personal and contact details quickly and easily. As part of the school’s improvement plan, we have committed to reducing the amount of paper we use and the implementation of the SIMS Learning Gateway is helping us to achieve this.
