A warm welcome from everybody here at Malvern Primary School. In our school we are committed to providing a caring ethos where children feel safe and their achievements and talents are celebrated.
By providing children with an exciting and challenging curriculum, a variety of after school clubs and residential trips we provide opportunities for every child to reach their full potential. Our aim as a school community is to ensure your child makes good progress in a happy, modern and stimulating environment.
We work in partnership with parents and carers ensuring they are fully informed as to their child’s learning and their target areas for improvement.
Parents’ meetings are held 3 times a year and other opportunities to become involved in school life, for example through family assemblies and curriculum workshops, are regular events on our school calendar.
Malvern is fortunate to have a supportive Parent Teacher Association and through fundraising our PTA have been responsible for purchasing a range of resources used by the children in class.
We hope that you enjoy browsing our website, but remember that it is just one way of finding out about our school. For more information or to arrange a visit please contact Debbie, Ruth or Carol in the school office on 0151 477 8230.
Coming soon: Online payments for school dinners with ParentPay!
Starting on Wednesday 3 June 2015 we will be introducing a more convenient way to pay for school meals online, using a secure service called ParentPay.
ParentPay will be live at school on Wednesday 3 June 2015, from this date we will be working towards greatly reducing cash and cheque payments for school dinners. Parents who need to continue making payments by cash or cheque may do so for now, please see below for information.
Making secure payments online using your credit or debit card
ParentPay offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available.
You will have a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password; you will be prompted to change these, and to keep them safe and secure. If you have more than one child at our school or children at another ParentPay school, you can create one single account login for all your children regardless of which school they attend.
Making a payment is straightforward and ParentPay holds a payment history for you to view at a later date; no card details are stored in any part of the system. Once you’ve activated your account you can make online payments straight away.
Making payment by cash or cheque
We will continue to accept cash and cheque payments in school.
Your support in using ParentPay will help the school enormously, thank you.
You will receive your unique ParentPay Account activation details as soon as possible
- When can I log in to my account?
Once you have received your activation letter from school with your activation login details you’ll be able to activate your account and start making payments. This letter will be sent to you soon by your school.
- Which cards can I use?
ParentPay accepts MasterCard and Visa credit cards, and Maestro, Switch, Delta, Electron, Solo and Visa debit cards. The minimum payment acceptable is £8.50.
- Is it safe to make payments on the internet?
Yes. ParentPay uses leading technology to process your card transactions securely. All communication with the bank is encrypted and neither ParentPay nor the school have access to your card details.
- How can I check that it’s secure?
Standard website addresses begin with http; the address for a secure site will always begin with https. You will also see a padlock at the bottom/top right of the screen on our login page and after you have logged into your account; never enter your card details or personal data on any web page whose address does not start https.
- What about our personal information?
ParentPay holds a very limited amount of information about you and your child
solely for the purpose of administering your account; however ParentPay does
not use your personal information other than for supporting the school. We do
not share or give information to any other organisations. We operate
under strict guidelines set out by the Data Protection Act 1998.
ParentPay will NEVER contact you by phone, email or mail and ask you

to a computer at work.
