As of March 2016, North Lanarkshire have introduced additional methods of payment within Baird Memorial to make life easier for parents/carers, reduce the need for pupils to carry cash and reduce the volumes of cash being handled in the school.
You will be able to pay securely online 24/7 using debit/credit card for all school meals and all other school expenses such as trip and uniform items. You should have now received a letter with a unique reference number for your child. Once you have this reference number, you can go online to put money onto your child’s card.
Pupils will also still be able bring money to school and use our cashless machine to top up their card.
If your child does not have money with them, we will send a note home to let you know how much is due to be paid the next day.
