School Payments

The school uses the School Gateway payment system that enables parent/carers to make secure online payments for school meals, trips and any other school expenses using credit and debit cards. By making cashless payments, you can be assured that the money has reached the school safely and has been used for the intended purpose. To make things clear, we notify parent/carers of new items for payment by text or email.

ACTIVATING YOUR ACCOUNT

All you need are your email address and mobile number that school holds on record for you.

TO 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.

OR

Click on the ‘School Gateway’ log in button, and then click on ‘New User’. Complete the details and press ‘send pin’. You will then receive a text message with a PIN number. Use this PIN to log into School Gateway.

Trouble logging in? It may be because the school does not have your current email and/or mobile phone number on record. Please contact the school and we will update the details on our system.

If you have children in other schools who use School Gateway and you are already registered, you will not need to register again, as all your children will appear in the one account.

PAYING FOR SCHOOL MEALS

The school also uses a biometrics or finger print system to pay for school meals. Students simply place their finger on the reader and funds will be added or deducted. Students will be given full instruction on how do this when they arrive in school. We will therefore require permission from each parent/carer to obtain their child’s fingerprint.

If you would prefer not to use the biometric system, your child will be given a personal pin number that will act in the same way.

FUNDRAISING

You are also able to pay for any charitable donations such as non-uniform days through the “School Gateway”

SCHOOL BUILDING FUND

As a Voluntary Aided school, we must pay 10% of the costs of any work carried out to maintain or improve our school building. The money for this comes from contributions made by parent/carers to the Diocesan School Building Fund. This can be paid via the School Gateway.
