School Gateway Cashless Payment System

Dear Parent / Carer

You can now make online payments to school via instant bank transfer, credit or debit card

I am pleased to inform you that we have introduced a new service – “School Gateway”. This means that you will be able to make online payments via the School Gateway smartphone app or website.   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.  Aside from saving the school time and money on administration, School Gateway will also make it easier for parents to pay any time 24-7 and reduce the amount of cash being carried by children on school premises.

What you need to do now

Activate your School Gateway account.  It is quick and easy to do. All you need is your email address and mobile number that school holds on record for you.

·         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 it saves the school money when we send you a text message.

OR

·         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.

Please complete and return the tear off slip below as soon as possible to ensure we have your current email and mobile phone information.  We hope that you will find School Gateway to be a fast and easy way to pay for school items.  Please do not hesitate to contact the school’s Finance Office if you have any problems using this new service.

Yours faithfully

Colin Barco

Finance Director
