We use the School Gateway System (Schoolcomms) to share information with parents and carers more quickly via email, text, online and smartphone app. Once you have set up your account, you will also be able to make payments via credit and debit card, view lunch balances and give your online consent for your child to participate in activities such as school trips. Parents also have the ability to see the Extended Care and Nursery sessions that they have booked, and make payments towards these.
We will notify you by text or email when new items such as school trips or tickets for events are available for payment on School Gateway. Aside from saving the school time and money on administration, School Gateway makes it easier for parents to pay any time 24-7 and avoids the need for children to carry cash on school premises.
Activating your School Gateway account It is quick and easy to do. All you need are your email address and the mobile number that the school holds on record for you. Download the app: If you have a smartphone, please download School Gateway from your app store (Android and iPhone). The app shows the same information as the website and it saves the school money when we send you a text message. OR 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 log into School Gateway.
Can’t activate your account? If you are having trouble activating your School Gateway account, it may be because school does not have your current email and mobile phone number on record. Please call the school and we will update the details on our system.
Schoolcomms at Newton Leys We hope that you will find School Gateway a valuable way to keep up to date, and would encourage all parents to register as soon as possible.
