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.
Paying money to the school online is simple and easy
You can now make payments online to the school for things like dinner money, breakfast club and school trips. Paying online is quicker and easier for you, safer for children and more efficient for the school. As soon as you’ve got the system set-up, you’ll be able to pay money to the school online rather than send cash or cheques.
If you’ve recently changed your email address or mobile telephone number, please let us know so we can update our records.
