Online payment system
Dear Parents and Carers
Online Payment System
Finding the right change or writing a cheque for school dinner can sometimes be difficult. You or your child has to take the payment/s to school and the school office has to count and record it. At school, we have decided to use Schoolcomms to offer you an online payment method which puts you in control. You can access it at any time, track how much you have paid, what is outstanding and make payments directly to us using your debit or credit card.
You will need to register for a School Gateway account from www.schoolgateway.com. You will need to enter the email address and mobile number we have on record for you. Please fill out the slip at the bottom to ensure we have the most up-to-date parent contact details.
When you have entered your email address and mobile number, select the Send PIN button, a PIN number will be sent to your mobile phone. You can then use this PIN number to log into the School Gateway and view/ make payments.
You can see a record of the payments that you’ve made and receipts are sent to your registered email address for all transactions you make.
If you have more than one child at this school or another school that also use the Schoolcomms payment module you can merge the accounts so one log in gives you access to all your children’s payment requests and history.
This system removes the need to send money into school with your child, removing the chance of money going astray, making it convenient for you to pay when it suits you, from anywhere at any time of day or night.
Your card details are not visible or stored in the Schoolcomms or school system.
All card information is processed by Barclaycard.
You log in using the email address registered with the school and with your PIN number.
If you have any questions about this, please contact us at the school.
