18 March 2019School Meals - iPayimpact- New Online Payment System

The Highland Council Catering Service are piloting a new way of making online payments for school meals. The new system is called iPayimpact, and has been piloted in Balloch Primary, Milton of Leys Primary and Culloden Academy.

This new and improved system enables:-

Online payments to reach the pupil’s  school meals account within 10 to 15 minutes

Parents / carers to see the up to date details of their child’s school meals account, including:

Current balance of account

Account transaction history

Child’s meal choices (whether or not the pupil pays for their meals)

Payments to be made for children attending different schools in one transaction

Details to be stored, so that there is no need to re-input details each time a payment is made

Recurrent payments to be made

As with the current system, complete anonymity is provided for pupils entitled to free school meals

 

Look out for the Letter and FAQ sheet (which will be with you week beginning 18th March) containing information and step by step instructions on how to use the new payment system.

 

Note you will not be able to make internet payments between the dates of 22nd March and 31st March whilst work takes place on disabling the old system and activating the new system.  During that period payment for school meals can be made using the Reval Machine in Ardnamurchan High.
