School Gateway and Online Payments
What is School Gateway?
School Gateway is a portal (available on APP and website) for communications from Breckon Hill Primary School. It provides a single point of contact that allows a parent to receive messages and letters, pay online for school dinners, breakfast club and afterschool clubs. Breckon Hill is a cashless school and parents need to register at www.schoolgateway.com with their mobile number and email.
We actively encourage our parents to sign up for a School Gateway account to communicate more efficiently and directly with you, whilst allowing parents to have the ability to communicate back to school. We will notify you by APP or email when new items such as school trips or events are taking place and other school news.
How do I activate a School Gateway account?
Simply follow the 4 step set up guide to activate a School Gateway account:
- Visit the website: www.schoolgateway.com
- Select ‘NEW USER’ tab. Enter the email address and mobile number that your school contacts you on and press the “SEND PIN” button. You will then be sent a 4 digit PIN number by text message.
