    At Pemberley Academy communicating with our parents is paramount, so that we can reach the parent quickly and efficiently. We have found the best way to get important and urgent messages to our school community is via electronic communications, through the ParentMail system.

    ParentMail allows us, as a school, to send text messages and emails home to parents informing them of up and coming PTA events, school trips that have been organised, parents evening events or simply if an after school club has been temporarily cancelled.

    As part of the ParentMail package, we have the use of their +PlusPay facility, which allows the school to be ‘cashless.’ This additional facility allows the parent to see breakfast club slot availability, allow them to book a school meal for their child and pay for any after-school clubs or school trips, the school may run.

    It is quick and easy to set up and use. The parents just follow the link sent either by email or text, by the school, upon starting with Pemberley. This allows you to confirm your account set-up and create your own password, so that you can access messages and the payment section.

    You can either log-in using an app on your smart phone, which can be downloaded through the app store, or via your personal computer using the pmx.parentmail.co.uk web address.

    If you have any further queries with using the system, in the first instance please take a look at our FAQ’s section for ParentMail. Otherwise if you still experience problems then please contact the school office directly.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    How do I top up my child’s Dinner Money account?

    To top up a child’s Dinner Money balance, please log-in to your ParentMail account and select ‘Payments’, then ‘Shop’. (Note: If the child’s balance is negative, or below the school’s pre-set minimum balance, you will see the option to top-up under ‘To Pay’ as well as ‘Shop’).
    Under the Accounts section, you will see the current balances for any children that you are linked to. Select one of these to enter the top up screen.
    Once you have selected the top-up recipient, you can type in an amount to top up. Please note, your school may have set a minimum top up amount; please contact them directly to confirm this.

    When I registered I entered the wrong email address – how do I change this?

    Simply log into your ParentMail account with the wrong email address, click on your name in the toolbar at the top of the page, then click Personal Details. Here you can change any of your contact details.

    I have forgotten my login/password, can you reset my account?

    Your login is the email address to which you receive ParentMail messages. If you can’t remember your password, please visit pmx.parentmail.co.uk and click ‘Forgotten your Password?’ You will be asked to input your email address before pressing confirm. If successful, you will get a message saying “Good news – A password reset link has been sent to you via email”. If you do not receive this confirmation message, the email address you entered is not registered, please check for typing errors and if correct – contact your school for a registration link.

    My child is entitled to free school meals, so why have I received a reminder about their balance?

    This is an automatic message sent out when a child is added to a dinner register. If your child is entitled to free school meals, the school will then move them into a ‘free’ price band, and you will receive no further reminders.
