Flexible Payment Plans (FPP) are offered as an alternative payment option for your school fees.

Should you like to accept this offer please complete the Flexible Payment eForm based on your preferred payment option.

Please only respond using one option (either by Direct Debit eForm or by BPAY eForm)

If either form has not been received prior to the payment due date the Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese will assume you do not wish to take up the flexible payment plan and will pay fees by the due date specified on the front of your bill.

When scheduling this payment arrangement through BPoint (direct debit) or your financial institution (BPAY) please ensure the exact amount shown against 'Payment Amount' on your Tax Invoice/Statement is used for your preferred option of Payment Frequency (Weekly, Fortnightly, Monthly).

Failure to do so may result in a reminder notice.

Direct Debit

You will need to use the BPoint Account, Reference & Payer ID at the foot of your bill and provide bank account or debit/credit card details to schedule payments from. Please note that the Biller code shown on the statement is for online one-off payments. The Biller code shown on the eForm is correct for flexible payment plans. The Reference should be entered with no spaces.


You will need to use your online banking facility to create a scheduled payment. To notify us that you will be scheduling the payment through BPAY please select the BPAY eForm. You will need to use the Customer Ref: shown in the top right-hand corner of your bill just below the school’s address details.

Should you wish to discuss your account please contact your school

Calculation of instalments

Periodic instalments will be based on the total amount outstanding on your account. You have the option of weekly, fortnightly or monthly payment instalments.

Please note: whilst every attempt has been made to bill all school fees for the year upfront, on occasions there may be a need to bill some additional fees, such as excursions, later in the year. As it is not practical to amend Flexible Payment Plans parents are requested to pay these fees (if any) separately to the Flexible Payment Plan.

Payments missed

Should your financial institution dishonour a direct debit payment that is scheduled, an administration fee may be charged by your financial institution. Please contact your school to arrange an alternative payment.

Cancellation or modification of Flexible Payment Plan

Your Flexible Payment Plan may be cancelled

  • by you, giving written notice to the school/CSPD of your wish to cancel the arrangement using the Cancel-Vary-Suspend Form
  • by CSPD, due to 3 dishonoured payments being received
  • by CSPD, upon your account being paid in full or in credit and there being no current student enrolled.

You may modify an ongoing Direct Debit Request Authority from a nominated bank account by:
