School Gateway - APP for contacting parents, booking clubs and collecting payments
Over the last few years, we have found messaging via our APP is the best way to reach parents and carers. We know you appreciate hearing from us directly to your mobile phone and you can also reply directly to us. This is accessible and easy to use, vastly improving our communication between home and school.
We operate a cashless payment system, which means that you can pay for clubs, trips and activities using the School Gateway system.
This is a much more secure and convenient system than paying by cash or cheques. Payments can be made any time of the day and will normally reach the school within one hour. An electronic record is kept of all payments made to your son or daughter’s account for your information. This prevents payments from being lost or stolen.
You can also request a PAYPOINT voucher so that you can pay at your local shop or supermarket.
Clubs / Training sessions
You are now required to book all clubs (i.e. craft club, football practice, athletics) and ‘one off ‘sporting activities / clubs – i.e. football match / netball match (selected pupils only) via the school gateway, this allows you to select specific dates you wish your child to attend. This information will remain on your app so you can plan in advance.
The School Gateway will benefit both you, your child and the school enormously.
Activating your School Gateway account is quick and easy to do. Have ready the email address and mobile number that the school currently use to contact you.
Downloading the app:
Please download School Gateway from your app store (Android and iPhone). It will ask you to enter your email address and phone number. A pin is then sent to your phone, which you will use to activate your account.
For those parents without a smartphone, you can visit the website:
www.schoolgateway.com and click on ‘New User’. Enter your email address and mobile phone number and you’ll receive a text message with a PIN number. Use this PIN to log into School Gateway.
Trouble logging in? It may be because school doesn’t have your current email and mobile phone number on record. Please contact school and we’ll update the details on our system.
We hope that you will find School Gateway to be a fast and easy way to pay for school items.
Please contact the school if you have any problems getting started.
