Check your browser and operating systems are up to date

Some schools have reported issues logging in to EdPay. Please check with your school’s IT support that you are using a secure, supported browser and operating system. After September 2021, people using outdated and incompatible platforms are likely to experience issues.

 You can read the about these platforms on the Lets encrypt – certificate compatibility page [Lets Encrypt website]

Terms of use

All EdPay activity is recorded and monitored. All information in EdPay carries a New Zealand Government classification level of IN-CONFIDENCE.

Misuse of EdPay may result in suspension of access, recovery or criminal proceedings.



Only individuals expressly authorised by your school are permitted to access EdPay. You must not share your login with anyone. By using EdPay, you agree not to disclose any information you have access to for any other purpose than administering pay.

Please submit an EdPay5 form if you want to authorise another person access to EdPay.

Making changes

Changes made to an employee’s personal or financial information can only be made with the consent of the employee.

Changes made to an employee’s pay must be authorised by the relevant person in the school before being entered in EdPay.

To avoid a potential of conflict of interest, you must not make a change that may affect your own pay or entitlements. 

Changes to a principal’s pay must only be made with the authorisation of the chair of the board.


EdPay has been designed as a highly secure system, however it is still critical that schools keep their cyber security up to date. You must have adequate virus detection, and have the latest operating system and browser updates installed. We prefer you connect through the Network For Learning (N4L).


In order to improve EdPay and our services, we occasionally ask for authorised users’ feedback via anonymous, voluntary surveys via a link in EdPay. All responses will be deleted after six months.

We welcome feedback on how we can better meet your needs.
