Online Payment System

School Online Payment System

Since 21st September 2015 Deanfield Primary School has been using an online payment system for school meals and other school activities.
The system, known as ‘SIMS Pay,’  is very easy-to-use and offers 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.
We are sure that you will find paying in this way much more convenient. However if you need to continue paying by cash or cheque, we will continue to accept these forms of payment.
