Schoolcomms – School Gateway App
We would like all parents/carers to sign up to the Schoolcomms Gateway App as this is the simplest way for you to receive text/email alerts, especially in current circumstances. Please follow these instructions:-
Now available - a new, free, smartphone downloadable app for parents/carers, called ‘School Gateway’ for Apple (iOS 8 on the iPhone 4S or later, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android (4.0 / Ice Cream Sandwich or later) devices.
The School Gateway App must be downloaded by the priority 1 contact for your child (the person school should contact first in an emergency).
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 (If you’ve recently changed your email address or mobile telephone number, please let us know so we can update our records).
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.
