UNCRC stands for United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

It’s a list of children’s rights that all children and young people, everywhere in the world have, no matter who they are, where they live or what they believe in.

The UNCRC has 54 articles in it, 42 rights are for children and young people up to 18 years of age. The others are all about how governments and adults should work together to make sure children and young people can access their rights.

Children’s rights are all the things that children and young people need to make sure that they are safe, have the things they need to survive and develop, and have a say in decisions that affect their lives.

The payment pages used to pay dinner money on-line have changed. The new system will offer you as parents the following improvements:

  • More user friendly look and feel 
  • ‘Shopping basket’ functionality giving the option to add multiple items with one payment at ‘Checkout’
  • The ability to register an account to which you can save the pupil references used to pay regularly
  • Parents who register can also choose to save their card details
  • Payment pages will re-size to display on a mobile phone or tablet

Nothing will change in terms of how you are notified of payments, you’ll continue to receive your dinner money reports as usual. Also parents can continue to use their existing reference numbers. For more information, click the following link:
