I usual only give students two weeks if no payment received I suspend lessons X

Students Owing Some Money (All Teachers)
Just a bit of advice really needed on my next step!
Got a student who is currently owing money from missed lessons, they are currently on my ‘pay as you go’ scheme rather than pay monthly.
Invoice was served in February and the date due passed at the beginning of this month, and so late payment charges are being applied for each late day.
Payment still hasn’t come through even though I am emailing and texting daily, so I have said that if it is not received by midnight tonight then all future lessons will be suspended until payment is made.
SO what I’m looking for is what is my next step should the payment still not be made even if I suspend lessons? I don’t think the amount owed is substantial enough for small claims court unfortunately.
EDIT: Will also note that this is a long standing student who has been with me for a few years, payments used to be absolutely fine with them up until the end of last year!
