Wisepay (cashless payment system)

Important information for all parents

As from 1st September 2020 our Academy will become completely cashless and all school meals and trips must be paid for using the WisePay system.

If you are not already registered on WisePay you will shortly receive an information pack in the post which includes a password letter and full instructions on how to use the WisePay system. If your pack does not arrive by Monday 13th July please let us know via enquiries@keshacademy.com and we will send another one out to you. If you are already registered on WisePay you may either continue using this on your computer or laptop as before, or you may prefer to use this service on your mobile phone using the WisePay app - please download the app as instructed here and input the Academy’s organisation code 98453733 to activate the app.

Useful guides for both Desktop and Mobile versions of WisePay can be found here. The guides are self-explanatory but if you do have any queries please email enquiries@keshacademy.com before Friday 17 July 2020 and one of the Finance team will contact you.

Mental health/welbeing webinar

Birmingham’s #you’vebeenmissed campaign is to support children and young people, parents and carers and professionals throughout the Covid pandemic.

As part of the campaign, Lydia Stafford, a Mental Health Nurse working in the Forward Thinking Birmingham’s early help team is leading 3 webinars to support parents. Lydia is passionate about supporting parents to maintain and strengthen relationships with their children, whilst being able to manage difficulties and challenges.

There are many transitions ahead for everyone moving slowly back into life after lockdown; Lydia would like to offer parents a webinar that explains why self- care as a parent at this time is a priority not only for their well-being but also in supporting and being “present” for their children during these transitions. Parents will also hear how the smallest acts to look after ourselves can make a significant difference. Lydia is also a parent to 3 children, she will be bringing aspects of both her personal and professional self to bring this concept across in a real, honest and connected way.
