Download new smart phone app – School Gateway

School Gateway

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.

Step 1– Search the app store for ‘School Gateway’, install the app and open it

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

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
  • be able to store and receive messages all in one place

Please don’t worry if your mobile phone doesn’t have an app facility we will continue to send messages via text instead.

Invitation Templates

We have created some email templates within Schoolcomms that you can send to parents/staff and students to encourage them to download the School GATEWAY APP AND HELP YOU SAVE MONEY.

To use these templates:

Go to Messaging | Send an Email

Select Insert Template and choose the App Invite, select Use template.

The template will be inserted into the body of your email.

Select your recipients, enter a subject and click Send.
