We are delighted to announce that we are launching the Schoolgateway ‘App’ which is provided by Schoolcomms. This enables us to provide parents and carers with a central communication portal for your child(ren) regarding attendance, timetables and achievements.
In addition, all text messages will be sent directly to the app – providing a quicker, more efficient service, as well as reducing costs. We are hoping that data will also be sent via the Schoolgateway app in the coming months.
Please could you download this new app to your phone (it’s free) as it will help us improve communication with yourself. We are also able to offer you the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw if you download the app by Friday 15th April. The prize that you will have the opportunity to win will be a £50 Tesco voucher.
The set-up process is simple and will take no more than a couple of minutes:
1. Search for “School Gateway” in the Apple App Store/Google Play or on your phone go to www.schoolgateway.com/apple (Apple) or www.schoolgateway.com/android (Android)
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 will receive notifications/alerts as normal.
If you have recently changed your email address or mobile telephone number, please let us know so we can update our records.
Assuring you of our continued support.
Mr G Smith
