Cashless Catering

Swansea Council has introducing an on-line payment system to help reduce administration and cash handling in schools and also to allow pupils to reduce the amount of cash they carry to schools. 

For school meals, each child has an account.  If they are to take a meal you are  required to top up this account with money.  Your child can order food from the school canteen by using biometrics or if you do not wish to give consent they can utilise the system with a pin number.

In order to use the iPayimpact web site you will need to enter a code which is sent to you by the school.

If you are new to iPayImpact you will need to set up an account first. If you have already set up an account you can skip this step.

  • If not previously registered on the site. Go to
  • Click on the Register button
  • Enter the Child Account Ref of your child.
  • Username – enter a username that you will remember. This will be required each time you login to your account
  • Email – enter a valid email address

If you have other children at this school or other schools and you have received a similar letter to this, you can link them to your parental account:

  • LOGIN to your account
  • Click on the Child Accounts tab
  • Click the Link a New Child Account button
  • Enter the Child Account Ref for the child – see this letter or other similar letter
  • Click Find School and Account – select the school from the list (if offered)
  • Click the Link Account button


  • From your Home Page – simply click on Add to Basket
  • You can amend the amounts you wish to pay
  • Proceed to Checkout

You will receive an email receipt of your payment once it has been authorised.


If your child is entitled to free school meals, their account will be automatically credited with the allowance on a daily basis. If your child needs to ‘top-up’ this amount, you will need to ‘credit’ their account in any of the two ways described above.  The new cashless catering solution ensures anonymity for your child.

Should you have any questions on the above, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
