Pay for school meals online
You can load money on to a young person's account via an online payment, meaning the young person doesn't have to carry cash to school.
East Renfrewshire Council has launched a new service that allows parents/carers to pay for their child's school excursions/visits and schools meals online, via the council's new Payments4Schools system.
By paying online parents will no longer have to engage in often precarious practice of sending their youngsters to school with money to pay for excursions/visits or meals.
Education chiefs also hope that, due to ease of use, there will be an increase in the number of pupils taking school meals.
The excursions/visits option is available in all secondary and primary schools with the school meals option being available in all schools which run the cashless catering system.
