For some time we have used email and text messages to keep you informed. We have to pay for text messages and this can add up to a lot of money.
We now have a new smart phone app - School Gateway. The App is completely free, and cuts the costs of text messaging. Great news as the money saved can be better used elsewhere.
If you have a smart phone, you simply need to install the app from Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
Please note at the moment Blackberry users are unable to use this facility as it is not yet developed. We will advise you if this becomes available in the future.
Enter your email and mobile number – your PIN number will then be sent to your phone
Enter your pin
Well Done! That’s it - you will now receive messages from us through the app instead of by text. Your phone will buzz/ring just like when a text message arrives. So you will:
- receive instant notification of messages
- receive messages using Wi-Fi even when there is no mobile signal
- not be charged for sending replies back to the school
- help save the school money on text credits
Please don’t worry if your mobile phone doesn’t have an app facility we will continue to send messages via text instead.
Many thanks to the parents who have already
installed the School Gateway App.
