Payment for school services using WisePay
At Ysgol Bryn Elian we operate an online payment portal (WisePay). WisePay is a secure online payment service that allows parents and guardians (and extended family members), to make payments to the school using their debit or credit cards. The system offers a convenient means of payment for many school services including daily school dinners, school trips or events and music tuition. The WisePay service operates in hundreds of schools, academies and colleges across the UK and has been in business for over 20 years.
This system incorporates the latest technology and eliminates the need for pupils to carry cash throughout the day. The system uses biometric thumbprint recognition so there is no need for pupils to carry a card as the system will recognise the pupil's thumbprint at the revaluation pay points and tills located throughout the school. Any amount of money can be paid into a pupil’s account, and any money spent on food & drink will be deducted on a daily basis.
What are the advantages of using WisePay?
Using your debit or credit card, payments to the school can be made conveniently from home, office, or anywhere that has an internet connection. Payments can be made 24/7.You do not have to wait until the school is open and you do not have to write cheques or find cash. Furthermore, at any time you can see your payment history in your 'Wise Account'. Additionally, you can track every transaction that you make - again 24/7. Your Wise Account also allows you to see your balances at any time. This is particularly useful for, say, a school trip that you are paying on instalments or for meal balances. You no longer have to call the school to ask about your balance or wait for a statement to arrive - you can see this information anytime at your convenience.
