Online Payments

Ash Field Academy are now operating a cashless system and are using an online payments system for you to pay for dinner money and other activities e.g. visits. We hope you will find paying in this way convenient and you can keep track of your current balances online.


The system is known as ‘SIMS Pay’ which is very easy to use. Payments are secure and use the highest level of card security so that funds will reach the school safely.



To be able to use the online payments system you will need:


A unique activation reference (we can send this home, please let us know if you need to sign up)

A free Microsoft account (if you don't already have one go here to get one :

If you want to pay by cash you will need to use PayPoint which is a widely used system for paying a multitude of bills. You will just need to find your local shop offering PayPoint, let them scan the bar code that the school can print out for you, let them know how much you want to pay (any amount from £2 to £200) and then you can pay them by cash or card depending upon what the shop accepts and we will get notified our end of your payment. 


You can find a list of shops offering the service on the PayPoint website. 


Please contact the school if you want us to generate a PayPoint barcode for you.
