Register your child on iPayimpact

Primary Pupils
If your child is at Primary - Your child's school will provide you with an account reference to register your child on iPayimpact.  This will be given to you via letter.

Secondary Pupils
If your child is at Secondary - You will need your child's NEC (Young Scots) card to register your child on iPayimpact. Your child will have received from their school a Young Scots NEC card.  The first 14 digits of the card number is your child's account reference to link them to your iPayimpact account.

On iPayimpact select 'link an account' at the top of the page and enter your child's account reference. Click find account and establishment. Repeat for each child you want to add to your account.

If you have not received your child's account reference, please contact
