Hints and Tips
- Sims Pay is a website separate to the Sims Parent App, which the Academy uses to provide with information such as timetables and reports.
- After you have made a payment you will receive a notification through the Sims Parent App.
- Be cautious of which account is used to register with Sims Pay as the Academy has no record of this and cannot help with forgotten passwords or usernames.
- Many trips are paid for in instalments. The system will automatically send out email reminders from Sims Pay.
- Please check your junk mail for emails from Sims Pay.
- Once your child has a place on a trip you will an alert on Parent App and an email letting you can now start making payment(s). On Parent App if you click the Store button this will take you to Sims Pay.
- If you have any issues getting started or logging in once registered please email email@example.com and will endeavour to help.
