The following information on paying for school meals is taken from the Aberdeenshire website: https://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/schools/school-info/meals/online-payments/

Aberdeenshire Council has introduced on-line payments to primary and secondary schools to provide parents and carers with the convenience of making on-line payment with debit or credit cards, for a range of school services.

This is now the way to pay for primary and secondary school meals. In addition, you may also make payment for a range of school services and activities when this facility becomes available.

The first step in accessing the on-line payment service is to visit Pay facility located on the Aberdeenshire Council home page. Select the Pay option. Select the “School meals and other school payment” option this will reveal the MyGovScot MyAccount portal.

To register please see instructions below or view our video guide: https://youtu.be/YwH9_3n7O4I


How To Make A Payment

The system allows you the convenience to make a payment whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A straightforward one-time registration is required for you, creating your own unique user name and password. Making payment is simple and the system holds a payment history for you to view.

The preferred option is to make an on-line payment but if required cash or cheque payments will continue to be accepted.


How The System Is Used To Obtain A Primary School Meal

Each morning in the classroom those children having a school meal will choose their main course for that day. This information will help the kitchen to ensure pupils receive their selected option.

Parents/carers can view their children’s choices in their on-line account history.
