North Lanarkshire Council have introduced a new online system for parents/carers to use when completing forms, online payments and updating data for their child. This digital portal is called Parent Portal and it will allow you to check the contact information we hold for your child, ensuring we can keep it updated at all times. It will also allow you complete letters online, make online payments for school dinners and school trips/outings as well as notify us of your child’s absences etc.
In this current climate, it will also allow us to reduce the amount of paper we use in school as well as manage the amount of paper moving backwards and forwards between home and school. We would encourage all of our parents to get on board with this new online approach!
If you have any questions regarding this new system please contact us.

Letter from Professor Jason Leitch
- Thursday 24th September 2020
You may recall that the original schedule was to begin the new term with two in-service days, but this had to be changed to one day given the Scottish Government announcement that pupils would begin to return to school from Wednesday 12 August 2020.
The other 3 in-service days remain unchanged giving us 5 in total:
- Monday, 16 November 2020
- Wednesday, 10 February 2021
- Thursday, 6 May 2021
The setting of holiday dates for schools in Scotland requires pupils to attend school for 190 days each year with teachers required to work 195 days, which includes 5 in-service days.

Important update on making school payments including school meals
In response to the COVID 19 outbreak we have made changes to our payment methods. This includes taking cash out of the process which will help reduce the spread of the virus. (Localised solutions will be in place for anyone who is unable to sign up for online payments.)
Many parents/carers have already signed up to online payments however for those of you who have not then please see the guidelines below.
All parents/carers will receive a communication to inform them of any changes and if you have not already signed up you will receive your unique reference number by group call text or letter
Once you have received this communication with the unique identifier number you can sign up using the instructions and the “Make a payment online” button below.
Paying through iPayImpact you are able to pay securely online 24/7 using debit/credit card for all school meals and all other school expenses such as trips and uniform items as well as paying for your school meals. The facility is available in all primary and secondary schools as well as most ASN schools.
Should you have any other questions in relation to the above, please contact the school office or email firstname.lastname@example.org
