As cashless school, our parent portal – School Gateway, enables parents/carers to pay for all school activities online. You are able to manage all bookings via the School Gateway smartphone app or website. You can view and manage chargeable school clubs including Breakfast Club and Homework Club, and you are also able to contribute towards trips and other events via this system.
What you need to do
1. Activate your School Gateway account, with your email address and mobile number that school holds on record for you.
2. Download the app: If you have an Apple or Android supported smartphone, please download School Gateway from your app store (Apple App Store and Google Play). Once downloaded select ‘New User’, add your email address and mobile telephone number (that the school holds on record) and click ‘Send Pin’. You will then receive a text with the pin number. The app enables you to pay for school items and book your child(ren) onto school clubs, PLUS you can view messages sent from school.
When installing the app, please ensure you say yes to allow push notifications, otherwise you will not receive notification of any new messages.
You can pay for items using a credit or debit card as well as by Instant Bank Transfer. If you wish to make a payment on the app via Instant Bank Transfer, you must first fill in an Instant Bank Transfer mandate on the School Gateway website (www.schoolgateway.com).
3. Visit the website: www.schoolgateway.com and click on ‘New User’. You will receive a text message with a PIN number. Use this PIN to login to School Gateway. We will notify you by text or email when there are new items to pay for, or clubs to book onto.
Can’t activate your account?
If you are having trouble logging in, it may be because the school does not have your current email or mobile phone number on record. Please call the school office on 01202 676393 to check or 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 and book onto school clubs. Should you experience any difficulty registering or paying online, please contact the school office who will be happy to assist.
