Our School App Stay connected on the go...
School Gateway App
Our main communication system is School Gateway. This means that we can communicate with parents quicker and more cost effectively via email, text and the smartphone app.
If you have a smartphone, both you and school can save money when you download the School Gateway app for your smartphone (Android and IPhone). Using the app means we can send you app messages that you can reply to, for FREE.
It’s quick and simple to do. All you need is your email address and mobile number that the school holds on record for you. If you have trouble logging in, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The set-up process is simple and will take no more than a couple of minutes:
To Obtain the App
1. Search for “School Gateway” in the Apple App Store/Google Play.
2. Install the app and if you are asked then say yes to “Allow Push Notifications”.
3. When you launch School Gateway for the first time, please select ‘New User’ and enter the email address and mobile telephone number you have registered with the school.
4. The system will send a PIN code to your phone; please enter this PIN code and the app will be activated for you.
As soon as you’ve got the system set-up, all of the text messages we send you will appear in the app; you’ll receive notifications/alerts as normal.
