In September we are bringing in a new communications system to make keeping you up to date with school information, news and events quicker, easier and more efficient.
The new service - ‘School Gateway’, also means that you will be able to make online payments via the School Gateway smartphone app or website using your credit or debit card.
You will also be able to view school meal balances and top them up at any time. The new service will replace Easy Pay, which will no longer be available from August.
Using the new system we will notify you by text or email when new items such as school trips or tickets for events are available for payment on School Gateway. You will also be able to give online consent, where required, for your child to take part in activities. As well as saving the school time and money on administration, School Gateway will also make it easier for you to pay the school at your convenience.
What you need to do now
Activate your School Gateway account. It’s quick and easy to do. All you need are your email address and mobile number that school holds on record for you. You don’t need to wait until September to do this.
Download the app: If you have a smartphone, please download School Gateway from your app store (Android and iPhone). The app shows the same information as the website PLUS you can send app messages to the school for FREE – this will also save the school money when we send text messages.
Visit the website: www.schoolgateway.com and click on ‘New User’. You’ll receive a text message with a PIN number. Use this PIN to log into School Gateway.
We will notify you by text or email when new items are available for payment. Please add the number 01173257917 to your phone as Parson Street Primary. This is the new number from which you will receive text messages.
If you’re having trouble logging in, it may be because the school doesn’t have your current email and mobile phone number on record. Please call the school and we’ll update the details on our system.
We hope that you will find School Gateway to be a fast and easy way to pay for school items.
