School Gateway

School Gateway – Online access to your child’s data and online payment.

Dear Parent/Carer:

Following parental feedback and consultation with students, we have recently decided to invest in a system that will allow you to contact the school directly; see assessment data about your child directly; and pay online for things such as trips and school lunches. Following a successful trial with excellent feedback we are now in a position to offer this to all parents of a student at Soar Valley College.

In order to access the School Gateway we must have valid and up to date contact details for you, including an email address. If you think the contact details we hold for you may be incorrect, please call our main school office at the number below and update them before accessing the School Gateway for the first time. To set up your School Gateway account please follow these steps:

Go to www.schoolgateway.com

When you visit the School Gateway website for the first time, please select ‘New User’ and enter the email address and mobile telephone number you have registered with the school

The system will send a PIN code to your phone; please enter this PIN code and your account will be activated for you.

As soon as you’ve got the system set-up, you will be able to contact the school via instant message; pay money directly to the school; and also access up to date assessment and timetabling data for your child. Once you have setup your account you will then be able to download the free School Gateway App for use on Android or Apple smartphones and tablets. To download this App please go to the App Store or Google Play and search for School Gateway and follow the on screen instructions.

If you have more than one student at Soar Valley College, or students at another school who also use the School Gateway these accounts will be linked provided that you have the same registered email address for each of your children.

If you have any queries regarding setting up your account or the other features that will be appearing later this term, please feel free to contact Mrs Lad on the main school number who will be able to answer any questions that you have.

Yours thankfully,

Mr K. Vernon

Assistant Principal
