School Life

At Pedmore High School we use two type of payments: The Inspire system is used for catering payments and Parent Pay for everything else.

Catering payments on Inspire

Your child has been issued with an ID Card that has their name and photo on it.  This card can be used at the school’s tills to purchase food at breakfast, break and lunch times.  You will be able to top up your child’s card using your INSPIRE account and clicking on the cafeteria tab on the left-hand side.   


There are three options to top up your child’s card:

  • By bank card with an amount of your choice.

  • By setting up a Direct Debit of £15.00. The system will automatically top up when your child’s balance falls below £5.00.  If you select this option you can also set a low balance alert so you know when money will be taken from your bank.

  • Via PayPal


The first time you top up your child’s account we suggest that you set a daily limit. This can be changed at any time.

Free School Meal students will automatically get a daily allowance of £2.40 this can be use at break time or lunch time to purchase food. Parents can also add money to FSM students’ cards to enable them to purchase additional meals or drinks in school. The system will automatically use the FSM allocation element first each day.
