School Online Payment System

Meadgate Primary School has an online payments system, which we would encourage you to use to pay for school meals and other school activities.  We hope that you will find paying in this way is much more convenient and from our perspective, it will save us time as well as reduce the chances of money being lost or stolen.


The system  is known as ‘Pay360 Education Payments’ which is very easy-to-use and will offer you the flexibility to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - safe in the knowledge that payments are secure and use the highest level of card security and that funds will reach the school safely.

How Do I Register?

Parents will receive a Pay360 registration invitation from the school containing a unique invitation code. You will need this invitation code to set up your Pay360 account. If you have not yet received a registration invitation, please contact your school.

To register Pay360, you will need one of the following accounts: Microsoft, Apple ID, Google, Facebook, Twitter or SIMS ID.

When registering for Pay360, please click the Register* button and follow the on-screen instructions.

Once registration has been completed, you will be able to use Pay360 to carry out the activities listed in your invitation straight away.


Why Are There Different Sign-in Providers?

Pay360 have chosen to use Microsoft, Apple ID, Google, Facebook and Twitter, in addition to SIMS ID, because many people will already have one of these accounts.

Pay360 uses these accounts to provide secure authentication when you sign in; we do not require any additional information from your account, only what is needed for authentication.


How Do I Set Up a Microsoft or Google Account?

If you do not have a Microsoft or Google Account, you can create one free of charge. Follow the instructions in your invitation.


Why Am I Unable to Register my Account?

If your registration fails, please check the on-screen error message and follow the instructions. Common reasons for registration to fail include using the invitation code after it has expired and using an invitation intended for another person. If you continue to experience problems registering your account, please contact your school.

If you have already registered your account and are encountering problems when attempting to sign in to Pay360, check that you are signed in to the account you used to register. This is particularly important where a computer has multiple users. Navigate to the website of your sign in provider, sign out of your account and then sign in again with the account you registered to use with Pay360. If you continue to experience problems when attempting to sign in to Pay360, please contact your school.
