Prayers

Life of St Edmund's Prayer

StEdmundimage



Heavenly Father, as we gather in prayer, we ask for the guidance and inspiration of our school patron,
St Edmund, who led a life based on Gospel values and the belief in the power of God.


We pray that like Edmund, each of us will personally come to believe that,
“I can do all things with the help of God who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13)
and that together our school community may grow ever closer to you and to one another.


May our school be a place that reaches out to the wider community
and is mindful of the environment around us.


We pray in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.                                                                     

Amen

Cashless Catering System - Parent Pay


What is Parent Pay?

It’s simple, safe, convenient and your child no longer needs to carry cash into school.

ParentPay is an online payment system for schools. It allows parents to pay quickly and securely for school meals, trips and activities, uniforms, music lessons and fees.

We're pleased to announce that we accept payments online for items such as dinner money, school trips and Building Fund using a secure website called ParentPay.  You will be able to pay online using your credit or debit card.  ParentPay will be our preferred method of making payments to school.

ParentPay is easy to use and will offer you the freedom to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24/7.

The technology used is of the highest Internet security available ensuring that your money will reach the school safely - offering you peace of mind.


Payments can be made by credit/debit card.


Full payment histories and statements are available to you securely online at any time.
