As from 1st April 2018 you can use School Gateway to make online payments with a debit or credit card any time 24-7, via smartphone app or website. You can also view school meal balances and top them up. Plus, you can give online consent where required, for your child to take part in school trips and other activities.
To make things easy, we notify parents of new items for payment by text or email.
Aside from saving the school time and money on administration, School Gateway also makes paying for school items easier and more flexible for parents and reduces the amount of cash being carried by children on school premises. We would encourage you to use it as part of our move towards becoming a cashless school.
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.
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 in to School Gateway.
Trouble logging in? It may be because the school doesn’t have your current email and mobile phone number on record. Please contact the school and we will 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.
What we’ve been up to…
The fourth annual Staff vs Year 6 Football Match took place on the last day of term. This year saw the staff team record their first ever win against the children. The match was thrilling and the final score was 4 – 4. The teams had to go to penalties and thanks to an amazing Mrs Marriott, the adult team won. The Y6 team has been fantastic all year and this was their first ever defeat and it was conceded against some adults who played their best football. The fans were superb. Well done everybody!
Last week Year 5 have been very busy building this stunning pyramid out of sticks and elastic bands. The finished work was wonderful and worthy of the Louvre Pyramid.
Last month in Year 5, we studied Surrealism as part of our French Art Project. In surrealism, the subjects look like out their out of reality, in fact some surrealist artworks are inspired by the artist’s dreams. The movement made artists find beauty in the unexpected and the uncanny subjects. The world surrealist suggests beyond reality, it’s a combination of both realism and imagination too. After having looked at different artists of this period, the children made some collages and a surrealist box inspired by The Listening Room by Rene Magritte. What beautiful artworks!
