Welcome to the new - the new way to access online school payments (iPayImpact) and a variety of additional services to support you and your child.

How to access

What is

In support of West Lothian Council's ambition to continue improvement in parental communications we have been working with national partners to develop a "Parents Portal".

The portal will be developed to provide parents with a clear insight to their child's education and to support transactional communications between parents and the school.

A national consultation exercise was conducted to include the views of parents in the design of the portal. View or Download the report on "Parent views of school engagement and an online portal".

Initially, this new service will introduce basic information about the school and will allow you to:

  • link to your child
  • view school calendar
  • view your child's class timetable (for pupils in secondary school)
  • view your child's attendance
  • complete the annual data check process electronically
  • update your own as well as your child's details at any time
  • access Parent Zone and MyWestLothian
  • access online school payments (iPayImpact)

As the product develops we look forward to seeing more services introduced including electronic permission slips and consent forms. 

This is an exciting first phase of a new initiative which enables and creates a digital relationship between parents, pupils and schools.

Further details will follow for the additional services that become available, and to take advantage of these current and upcoming services please sign up to

On signing up to the portal, you will be able to link to your child and gain access to the above named services which are currently available. In order to link to your child the data you provide during the sign up process must match the data that your child's school holds.
