School Gateway App

The School Gateway app brings together a significant amount of useful information regarding your child / children in one place. It can be viewed online or if you have an Apple or Android device, on your Smartphone.

You will be able to: 

  • Keep up to date with the latest information about your child.
  • View behaviour. Staff log incidents of poor behaviour onto our management system and this is sorted into different categories of behaviour. The app will share with parents the category attached to any behaviour incidents that are reported. 
  • Attendance. This will give you details of overall attendance percentage and also details of any absences.
  • Check and update your contact details. You will have access to all of the contact details we hold for you and you will be able to update these as necessary.
  • Timetable. You will be able to view your child’s timetable at all times.
  • Notify us of any reason for absence.

We can: 

  • Send real time notifications to you when new information is available.
  • Save money on admin time, printing and paper.
  • Ensure our contact details for you are up to date.
