Carole Spragg from Worcestershire County Council will deliver the session Payments4Schools at Worcestershire County Council. An overview of how Worcestershire County Council has successfully implemented Payments4Schools (P4S), a system which allows parents to pay for school trips, school meals etc for their children via a url on their school website. This reduces the need for children to carry cash and cheques to school and the time spent in school on administration and banking. The system links seamlessly and securely to SAP via an interface to post the income to the school accounts. Issues in schools around coding and VAT recording can be alleviated, as these items can be pre-set in the schools administrative tool. P4S can also take money for the schools own bank account or private funds. It has proved very popular and over 100 schools are now using this system. Many of the new Academy Schools wish to retain the service and it has recently been expanded to link with cashless catering. 

Adam Cundell from the User Group will deliver a 2011 Update Including information on this years annual conference.
