How to pay for school meals

We’re pleased to announce that, from 10th April we will be using PlusPay, an online payments platform which will make it far easier for you to pay for school lunches.

PlusPay is the online payments service provided by ParentMail. New parents will receive an invitation by email or text to register with ParentMail. Please create your account so you’re ready to start paying for school items with PlusPay. Existing Parents should already have received this in vitiation. Please contact the school office if you have not received one and need to register.

You can pay for school items with PlusPay on the free mobile ParentMail app (available for iOS and Android devices) and by the online portal. We highly recommend downloading the ParentMail app as it makes paying quick, easy, and secure. To download the app, go to the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and search ‘ParentMail’.

PlusPay offers a variety of payment options, including credit, debit cards and PayPal. 

We will be using ParentMail / PlusPay to pay for school dinners from 10th April so it’s important that you are registered with ParentMail before this date to pay for school dinners.


Depending on your payment method, all payments processed through PlusPay will display on your bank statement as IRISPAY.

For more information or assistance, please visit the ParentMail help site or please contact the school office.
