Parents will soon have an easier way to pay for school meals and other expenses with the introduction of online payments in schools.
The service is linked to a cashless catering system and is easy to use, allowing parents across North Lanarkshire to make payments whenever they like.
North Lanarkshire Council uses MyAccount, a sign-in service for accessing online public services in Scotland linked to iPayImpact system to manage school payments.
The money automatically goes into the appropriate account, avoiding cash and cheques having to be sent to the school.
Parents can also check balances and view transactions online.
The system is currently running in Newarthill, Glencairn and St Thomas’ primary schools, and also at Clyde Valley High School.
