Online school payments

ParentPay - our new online payment service for school meals

We’re changing the way parents and carers pay for school meals and trips, moving from iPay to ParentPay.

ParentPay works in a very similar way to iPay. It’s easy to use, you can make payments 24/7 and can check your history, balance and statements securely online at any time.

You'll need to set up a new account but you can do this in the same way for iPay through mygovscot's my account or, for quicker access to your account, you can set up directly through ParentPay. Once we’re ready to go ahead, we’ll get in touch with account activation details. You need to set up an account by Monday 15 August 2022.

How to get started with ParentPay?

We’ll send you out a letter with account activation details. Once you receive these:

  • visit
  • enter your activation username and password in the account login section of the homepage.
    These details are for one time use only, please choose your own username and password for future access during the activation process
  • enter all the necessary information and choose your new username and password for your account - registering your email address will enable us to send you receipts and reminders

Once activation is complete you can go straight to Items for payment, select which item(s) you want to add to your basket and proceed to complete your payment.

For more information visit the ParentPay website. They've a helpful video about activating accounts.
