Save money by downloading the School Gateway app


If you have a smartphone, you can help us save money by downloading the ‘Gateway’ app from your app store (Android and iPhone).  By doing this we can send you app messages (avoiding the cost of texts) and you can send messages back for FREE.  It’s quick and easy to do.  All you need are your email address and mobile number (these need to be the same ones you have given to school).  If you do not have a smartphone, you will still receive text messages from the school on an ordinary mobile phone. 

You can make online payments to school via credit or debit card


‘Gateway’ is a very secure method of making online payments and it means that you can make a payment from your phone to save logging into a PC or laptop.  Also, people with the ‘Gateway’ app can receive and reply to messages sent from school free of charge.  You will also be able to view school meal balances and top them up at any time once the link is in place between Schoolomms and the kitchen.  This is now imminent and makes paying lunch money much easier.
