School Payments

West Ashtead Primary Academy is a cashless school. You may be required to pay for school lunches, trips and activities and can do so through payment on ‘Arbor’, an online payment system for schools. All children will be registered with an Arbor account.


Say goodbye to paper slips and emails - the Arbor App lets you book parent/guardian consultation slots, register your child for a club or trip, and manage payments all from one place. You can also use it to check in on your child’s attendance, behaviour and academic progress.

Your child’s school has chosen Arbor as their MIS provider. An MIS is a system that helps schools collect, store, manage and use all the information they need. Arbor is a simple, smart and cloud-based MIS, meaning the data isn't physically stored in school, making Arbor super secure. It also means you can log into Arbor to see and update your child’s information or make payments and bookings yourself! Arbor was founded in 2011 by a small group of people on a mission to create a simple, smart MIS system that would help schools learn from their data to save teachers time and ultimately improve student outcomes.

We are really looking forward to getting started with Arbor and invite all our parents to familiarise themselves using the link below.
