The Craylands School will be using ‘School Gateway’ going forward to obtain online payment from parents & carers for pupil swimming, school trips, residential trips etc. There is also the facility to obtain parental consent at point of payment making the whole process faster, more convenient and less paper means it’s better for the environment too. This is the same platform that the school currently uses to send you emails and text messages.
Please could you download this new app to your phone – there is no cost involved.
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.
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 & you will be able to view and pay for any relevant trips for your child/ren.
If you have any questions or would like some more information, please see the School Gateway site: https://schoolgateway.co.uk/.
If you’ve recently changed your email address or mobile telephone number, please let us know so we can update our records by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org the process relies on both the school and parent having the same details and it will not work if there are any discrepancies.
