Online e-payments for school meals and other school purchases

We are introducing iPayimpact online payments at Farringdon Community Academy to help reduce administration and the amount of cash students carry to school. Initially each pupil will be set up to pay for school meals (additional services will be added at a later date) and if your child is to purchase from the school diner you will be required to top up this account with money. There are two ways to pay money into this account:

  • iPayimpact web site ipayimpact.co.uk
  • Cash payments using the revaluation unit(s) located in the school diner

In order to use the iPayimpact web site you will need to register on the site. Go to www.ipayimpact.co.uk and follow the instructions below:
