Improved text messaging system – and you can help the school save money.
Save money by downloading the School Gateway app. 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 school money.
The set-up process is simple and will take no more than a couple of minutes:
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’ll receive notifications/alerts as normal. If you’ve recently changed your email address or mobile telephone number, please let us know so we can update our records. Thank you for your help.
*** We’re aiming to get 50% of parents using the app – please help us achieve this.
***Once you’ve downloaded the app, our texts will be delivered to you as instant app messages, saving us the cost of texting.
