School Gateway

We’re making communication easier, faster and more effective based on your feedback.

We are pleased to advise that we are introducing a new text and email service – ‘School Gateway’. This means that we can communicate with you more quickly and cost effectively via email, text and smartphone app. It also means that we’ll be securely sharing electronic copies of any future printed student reports for you to review. This service will replace the current SIMS Learning Gateway (SLG).

If you have a smartphone, you can download the School Gateway app (Android and iPhone). Using the app means we can send you app messages that you can reply to at no cost.

Its quick and simple to do. All you need is your email address and mobile number that the academy holds on record for you. If you have trouble logging in, please call us on 01752 671318 and ask to speak with your child’s guild assistant. They will be able to check the details we have on record and make any amendments after some initial security checks.

If you don’t have a smartphone you can still access all of these features by logging into School Gateway from a PC, tablet or other web enabled device. You will also still be able to receive text messages from us on a standard mobile phone.

As well as providing simple message updates relating to attendance, progress and activities, we are also aiming to provide you with more effective methods of online payment for school meals and activities. We will write to you again with further details of our online payment system in the near future.  

If you would like further support through the initial registration process or in the use of the app, you are welcome to contact our Learning Technology Manager directly and arrange a convenient time to visit the academy.
