Year 9 Ski Venture Information (January 2020)

We use a communication system called Schoolcomms to help us to communicate more effectively with home. It allows parents/carers to receive letters and reminders from school, by email or text, direct to a chosen e-mail and mobile account.
Schoolcomms also has a free app that parents/carers can download called School Gateway. The app allows you to get messages in a quick and easy format to your mobile and helps the school save money as all texts sent to the app are free.
Schoolcomms has a lot of extra features and allows you to make online payments for dinner money, school trips etc. (see below). You will need to use the School Gateway website to complete the initial set up for payments using your bank account number and sort code. After this set up, payments can be made on either the website or the app.
You do not need to register for Schoolcomms as it links directly with our school system (SIMS). Once we have students registered on SIMS, and we have your correct email and mobile number, you will automatically receive the messages we send out.
Instructions for on-line payment registration
If you haven’t already done so, you will need to activate your School Gateway account using your email address and mobile number that the 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.
- 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.
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 contact the school and we’ll update your details on our system.
You will need to use the School Gateway website to complete the initial set up for payments using your bank account number and sort code. After this set up, payments can be made on either the website or the app.
