Further Notes

The Accord Card is needed to use the catering facilities at all Aberdeen City Council secondary schools. It offers your child an easy, quick and secure way to pay for meals and means you can top-up their card online. You can also receive balance alerts by text and/or email to let you know when to top-up. View Our Frequently Asked Questions (opens in a new window).
