From time to time, we send information to parents via text message to your mobile phone. A new, free, smartphone app for parents is now available for download called ‘School Gateway’ for Apple (iPhone 3GS or later, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android (2.3 / Gingerbread or later) devices.
Please could you download this new app to your phone (it’s FREE!) as it will help us improve communication with parents – and save the academy money.
The set-up process is simple and will take no more than a couple of minutes:
- Search for “School Gateway” in the Apple App Store/Google Play OR go to www.schoolgateway.com/apple or www.schoolgateway.com/android
- Install the app and if you are asked then say yes to “Allow Push Notifications”
- 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 academy
- 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’ll receive notifications/alerts as normal.
Some of the things available on the app include:
- Student & School Details
- Student Timetable
- Student Attendance
- Dinner Payments
Does the Academy have your email address and mobile telephone number?
If you have changed either your email address or mobile telephone number recently, please let us know so we can update our records.
