School payments

Our schools run a cashless payment system for school meals, services or activities. You can manage and top up your child's account online.

Please ensure there are always sufficient funds on your child’s account prior to sending them for school meals. There is a formal debt recovery process for accounts that fall into debt.

How to register

Online payments are made using myAberdeenshire. If you don't already use myAberdeenshire, you can create a myaccount account. After registering, you need to link your child to your account.

Create your account

You will need to register for myaccount to access myAberdeenshire and make online school payments. Select 'Register', then 'Create a new account'.

If you have a school payments login and use the same email address when registering for myAberdeenshire, we will link the two accounts.

You will receive a temporary password and link to access the system and set up a new password.

Link your child to your account 

New and existing users who already use myAberdeenshire will need to link their children to their account before they can make school payments. To do this, sign in to myAberdeenshire and select 'Pay for school meals, services or activities' on the myAberdeenshire dashboard. Enter your child's account reference and the 'link account' page. Reference numbers are provided by your child's school, if you can't find it, please contact the school or phone us.

If you have more than one child, you can choose to 'link further children'. You will only need to link each account once.

If you are an existing school payments user, you will need to enter your school payment password. This will automatically link your accounts.

Meal choices

Parents of both primary and secondary pupils can view their children’s account balances, daily meal choices and spend history online.
