ParentPay continues to grow and is about to be rolled out to Staffordshire schools. The system enables parents to pay money into school - for trips, music lessons, school meals etc - by credit or debit card over the internet. A further product, "mealScene", in use in Staffordshire and Croydon, displays menus online and makes it possible for schools and meals providers to engage in dialogue with children and parents about healthy eating issues.

Starting next term, ParentPay will link with "PayPoint", enabling parents to make payments in local shops.
