You can make payments with Maestro, Switch, Delta, Electron, Solo and Visa debit cards. You can also use MasterCard and Visa credit cards.

My child receives free school meals, how does that work?

The system will automatically credit your child's account with the daily allowance.

Can I pay for other school items online?

It will be up to each individual school to decide what items can be paid online. All school meals will be able to be paid online and we expect other school items to be made available. Your child's school will keep you informed.

Can I set up regular card payments?

Yes you can set up a regular card payment; you will need to store your card details on the system for this to be allowed.

Do I have to pay online?

You can continue to make payments for school meals in the same way as you do now, however online payments is secure, quick and easy and means that your child would no longer need to take cash or cheques to school.

What should I do if I have a problem?

For issues about linking your child's account or payments please contact your child's school or email onlineschoolpayments@eastlothian.gov.uk.
