School Gateway for parents

School Gateway for parents

Thank you to the many parents and carers who now use the 'School Gateway' App device on their smart phone or tablet device.

Whilst the school can still send text and email messages to parents and carers via the School Gateway, the new system also sends notifications via the App - this works on your apple or android device.

There are still a number of parents / carers who have yet to access their child's School Gateway account.

You will:

  • Receive letters more reliably and promptly and keep up to date with the latest information about your child/ren.
  • View achievement, behaviour and attendance information about your child
  • See letters in your inbox like any other email
  • Get a short text or app message if we need to contact you urgently
  • Still get paper letters if you don’t have email
  • Not need to rely on your child for delivery
  • Be able to reply by email, text or app message

We can:
 Send real time notifications to you when new information is available
 Save money on admin time, printing and paper
 Contact you urgently when necessary

Next steps:
1. The school will use the email address and mobile number that we hold for the Priority one contact(s). If you are not certain that we have your correct details, please use the reply slip on the reverse
2. If you do not have an Apple or Android device, skip to step 6
3. Go to your app store and search for “School Gateway” and download the app
4. Once downloaded, select the “I’m a New User” button; enter your email address and mobile number that we have on record for you. Select Send PIN and a PIN number will be text to your mobile phone
5. Log in with your email address and the PIN, your account is now active and you will receive instant notifications of messages in your notifications bar
6. If you change your contact details please let the school know as soon as possible by phoning 01305 817001
