7 ratings | 2381 views
Customer First has supported the development of an innovative new school online payments system in Dumfries & Galloway Council. The initiative offers parents the option of making a variety of school payments - including school trips and lunch money - via a simple and convenient online system linked to the Young Scot National Entitlement Card (NEC). This new service, officially launched at Dumfries High School on Monday, March 12, has been developed as part of the Channel Shift programme and has huge potential nationwide. Delegates from the Improvement Service, Dumfries & Galloway Council, Dumfries High School, Young Scot, DG First and sQuid joined pupils at the launch. The new online payments system has many positive features and benefits for parents, pupils, schools and councils. Parents can easily pay online for lunches, school trips, and other school expenses, and the reloadable cashless card system is simple to use and completely secure. All parents have to do to is register online, then add the details from their child's Young Scot card. They can then pay by debit or credit card and the money automatically goes to the school's bank account. Some of the key advantages of the new online system, provided by e-payments specialists sQuid, include: • Pupils do not need to carry cash to school • Money loaded on the online system has to be spent in the school • Online record of payments for school trips is maintained • Potential cost savings and reduced administration time for school • Concerns over cash safety and bullying are potentially reduced • Pupils are more likely to stay in school at lunchtime For more information, email: [email protected]
