You will need a unique IpayImpact Account Reference Number for each of your children in order to use Online Payments. This is available from the School Office through calling 01236 794888.
Online Payments for School Meals and other School Purchases
Online payments have been introduced in all schools across North Lanarkshire to provide parents/carers with more convenient and flexible methods of payment for school expenses. This service will also allow pupils to reduce the amount of cash they carry to school and help reduce administration and cash handling in schools. Cash and cheque payments can still be made in the same way as at present.
The new safe and secure payment system, called iPayImpact, has been introduced in this school. In addition to being able to pay online for school uniform, trips and other school expenses, this system links directly with the catering management system. As soon as you add funds for school meals, the money will immediately be available for your child/children to spend in the school canteen.
If you set up an online account, whether you pay online or not you will be able to see the balance on your child/children’s school meal account and what they have purchased with the funds, you will also be able to see what trips etc. are available to them and what balances require payment.
