ParentPay and School Gateway
ParentPay enables parents/carers to make payments for their child's lunches and school trips, and enables parents/carers to receive important communications from the school.
When pupils join the school, parents/carers are issued with a "ParentPay Activation Letter" that contains a temporary ParentPay username and password. As part of the account activation, the parent/carer will need to choose an email address and new password to use with ParentPay. Parents/carers should follow the instructions in the letter, and on www.parentpay.com to successfully activate their account. If you have more than one child at our school, or have children in other “ParentPay” schools, you can create a single account to manage them all.
School Gateway Messaging Service
School Gateway is used to email the weekly parent bulletin, newsletters, pupil reports and other key school letters. Priority contact number 1 will be the person who receives all of the above information and in order for these important communications to be received, school require a current email address and up to date mobile number for priority contact number 1.
School Gateway Text Messaging Service
School Gateway is also the system the school uses to send important SMS text messages to you. Such communication will be sent to the identified first contact parent/carer on our system for all pupils. It is the parent/carers responsibility to ensure that the school has the correct/current mobile phone number for emergency messages.
If a parent/carer can't get into their ParentPay account, they should go to www.parentpay.com --> Login, and choose the "Forgotten password" link. Parents/carers should not need to contact school to regain access to ParentPay accounts.
