To minimise the amount of money coming into the school office, we would like to encourage you to use the online payment service School Gateway.

We’ve introduced a new service - ‘School Gateway’. This means that you will be able to make online payments via the School Gateway smartphone app or website. You will also be able to view school meal balances and top them up at any time.


Click on the link below and click on ‘New User’. You’ll receive a text message with a PIN number. Use this PIN to log into School Gateway. All you need are your email address and mobile number that school holds on record for you.



Download the app:  If you have a smartphone, please download School Gateway from your app  
store (Android and iPhone). The app shows the same information as the website PLUS it saves
the school money when we send you a text message.


Email/Text service

The school office runs a email/text service to inform parents of events and school closures, please ensure you keep them informed of current mobile numbers & email addresses.



If your child is going to be absent from school due to illness please phone the school office. Children should not be taken out of school for holidays during term time as this disrupts their education. If the absence is unavoidable, an application must be made to the school using the Leave of Absence form which is available from the School Office.



In the event of your child being late for school, they should come to the school office where you should complete the late book and the office staff can take lunch orders.
