We are pleased that so many of you have downloaded the School Gateway app which is allowing more effective communication between home and college. With the app you can receive instant messages and information about your child’s attendance and behaviour. In addition you can send messages to college for free. If you haven’t done so already, it’s quick, simple and free to download by going to your smart phone app store.
We are introducing two new services via the app this month:
- Student Achievement Points – you will be automatically alerted when your child gains points for academic achievements such as ‘Star of the Week’
- Payments – From Monday 29th May all payments to the college, including school meals, college trips, can be made via the app
We will be ending our contract with sQuid, our current online e payment portal, on Friday 26th May 2017. All parents who pay for school meals using sQuid are asked to please do the following by Friday 26th May:
- Get your child to spend their existing balance on sQuid
- Download the School Gateway app onto your smartphone
Payments for School Trips can also be made via sQuid up to Thursday 25th May 2017, after which all payment must be made via the School Gateway app.
College need your up to date email address and mobile number to allow you to log on to the app. Please contact the General Office if you have any questions regarding the above.
Thank you for your patience as we move to what we believe is a more efficient system for home-college communication.
