School Meals and Payments



School Money – Making Payments to St Cuthbert’s Catholic Primary School 


We are now using School Money, instead of Pay360, to take payments from our St Cuthbert’s parents and carers. This enables easy online payments for school dinners, trips, clubs, uniforms and more. You will be able to make payments via the app (Teacher2Parents - which some of you may already be aware of as its used to communicate messages from school) or, the website  

We have attached guides for both the App which you can download to your device and the School Money website to help you familiarise yourself with the new system. 

We will be issuing passwords to those that are new to the App in the coming days so that you can get set up. If you already use the Teachers2Parents App, you should be good to go. Just select the menu button at the top left (three lines) from the Teachers2Parents app which will give you a number of options to click through, whether it be for School Dinners or Club payments that may be due.  

Please be mindful that this is a brand-new system for us all and we are still getting used to it ourselves. If you do have any queries, please check the user guides before contacting the school office but do not hesitate to contact us if you need any support at all. 

Any necessary payments required from you should show on your app or on the School Money website over the next week or two. 

Thank you for your continued support. 

Best wishes, 

The School Office
