Schoolcomms – School Gateway

For some time we have been sending 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 smartphone 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 smartphone, please download the app from Google Play or the Apple App Store.

Step 1 – Download the ‘School Gateway’ app

Step 2 – Select ‘I’m a new user’, enter your email and mobile number – your PIN number will then be sent to your phone

Step 3 – Enter your PIN and login

That’s it – you will now receive messages from us through the smartphone app. Your phone will buzz/ring just like when a text message arrives. So you will:

  • receive instant notification of messages
  • receive messages even when there is no mobile signal – provided you’re connected to Wi -Fi
  • not be charged for sending replies back to the school
  • be able to store and receive messages all in one place

If your mobile phone isn’t able to download the app, we will continue to send messages via text instead.
