To keep your child/ren safe and ensure their well-being, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our links with you and keep everyone up to date and well informed.

We have now switched to Schoolcomms for texting and emailing. This will enable you to receive all information from us quickly and reliably. We will send letters by email to your inbox and short messages directly to your mobile phone as a text message, or if you have an Apple or Android mobile phone, by app message (this is a free service to parents).

By downloading the free app called “School Gateway” you can text or email us for free at any time. Please can we encourage all parents to download this app as this will save both you and the school money which can be put towards other valuable resources. You will be able to reply to us by email, text or app message, and be able to send us reasons for absence via text, email or app message before the start of the school day.
For parents who do not have an email address we will publish all newsletters and other letters on our website. However, in order to best keep in touch we urge you to provide an email address and valid mobile telephone number.

Schoolcomms is registered with the data protection act. All information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation. Your details will only be used for the purpose of school business. You will not receive any SPAM or marketing material.
Schoolcomms also offer an improved method of paying for dinners, trips and other events online. We are planning to transfer from Wisepay to Schoolcomms over the next few weeks. You will receive full information on how to make payments when we have the new system in place.
How to download the School Gateway App to your mobile device
The “School Gateway” App is completely free, and cuts the costs of text messaging. Great news, as the money saved can be better used elsewhere.

If you have a smartphone, please download the app from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
Step 1 – Download the „School Gateway‟ app
Step 2 – Select „I‟m a new user‟, enter your email and mobile number – your PIN number will then be sent to your phone
Step 3 – Enter your PIN and login
That‟s it – you will now receive messages from us through the smartphone app. Your phone will buzz/ring just like when a text message arrives. So you will:

  • receive instant notification of messages
  • receive messages even when there is no mobile signal – provided you‟re connected to Wi -Fi
  • not be charged for sending replies back to the school
  • be able to store and receive messages all in one place

Please note that the telephone number used to send you messages cannot be used to call the school. It can only be used for texting. If you need to call the school, the number is 01727 767772.

If your mobile phone isn‟t able to download the app, we will continue to send messages via text instead.
We will use the contact information that we already hold on our student files. However, if you are uncertain whether this information is up to date, please contact us.
