This year we have introduced a new online payment and communication system, School Gateway. You can access it at any time, track how much you have paid, what is outstanding and make payments directly to us by bank transfer.
You will need to register for a School Gateway account from www.schoolgateway.com. You will then need to enter your email address and mobile number. These must match those we have on record for you so please ensure we have the most up-to-date contact details.
When you have entered your email address and mobile number, select the Send PIN button, and a PIN number will be sent to your mobile phone. You can then use this PIN number to log into the School Gateway and view/make payments.
If you have a smartphone, you can download School Gateway from your app store (android and iPhone). The app shows the same information as the website but is more easily accessible for you.
When there is money owing to school by you, we will set up payment requests and you will be notified by text or email that there is a payment request available. Simply log in using your email address and your PIN number, select the payment request(s) you wish to fulfil and follow the Wizard through to pay.
You can see a record of the payments that you have made and receipts are sent to your registered email address for all transactions you make. The system removes the need to send money into school with your child, removing the chance of money going astray, making it convenient for you to pay when it suits you.
Your bank details are not visible or stored in the SchoolComms or our school system. You log in using the email address registered with the school and with your PIN number.
If you have any questions about this, please contact the school office.
Payments for school dinners should be made directly to Principals, our caterers. Their preferred method of payment is also online via www.principals-catering.com.
