School Gateway and Online Payments

Due to the Coronavirus we are taking appropriate measures to help reduce any risk in the spread of infection. Therefore, when students return to school in September they will no longer be able to access the revaluer in school to put money on for lunch. All money will need to put on electronically via the schoolgateway app.

School Gateway also allows you to view your son/daughters timetable, amend personal details directly and view your child’s attendance. A message will be sent via the app to inform you of any unexplained missing marks making it easier for you to track and communicate with the school. You can also access the school website, calendar and social media pages direct from the app.
