At Riverside Primary Academy we operate a cashless school. Once your child joins our school we will issue each parent/carer their own personal SIMS Pay account. This account provides parents/carers with greater convenience for booking wrap around childcare, school trips and sports clubs amongst other things, allowing payments and booking to be made online.


To access SIMS Pay you will need an account with one of the following supported identity providers: Microsoft, Office 365, Google, Facebook and Twitter. It’s likely you already have an account with one of these providers but don’t worry if you haven’t, Microsoft and Google accounts are free and easy to create. SIMS Pay – Getting Started


Wrap Around Childcare Provision


In addition to set school hours, Riverside Primary Academy offers a wrap around childcare provision for a small fee.


If you require additional wrap around care for your child, bookings can me made via our SIMS Pay system.  Provision is offered and allocated on a first come basis, providing places are available and full payment is made. For more information on our wrap around care provision please click here
