It is now more important than ever that parents and school engage with each other and sending messages home via email, text and our School Gateway App is our main way to communicate with you. By using this method of communication we can instantly share with all parents/carers SCHOOL REPORTS, achievement, behaviour and attendance updates as well as other regular messages, letters, newsletter and updates from school. Therefore, we are no longer sending letters home in the post or with students unless absolutely necessary.

Our School Gateway app is free to download, and is free for school and parents to send messages to each other. All we need is a mobile number and email address from each parent/carer that needs to receive the information. So please send us this information if we don't already have it and see below for the set-up process on any device - mobile, tablet or PC:

1. Search for “School Gateway” in the Apple App Store/Google Play or on your phone go to (Apple) or (Android)

2. Install the app and if you are asked then say yes to “Allow Push Notifications” - this is important so that you know when we have sent you a message.

3. When you launch School Gateway for the first time, please select ‘New User’ and enter the email address and mobile telephone number you have registered with the school. If you are unable to register you will need to check with us that we have your correct details – email 

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

As soon as you’ve got the system set-up, all of the text messages we send you will appear in the app; you’ll receive notifications/alerts as normal.

If you would like to find out more click here

If you’ve recently changed your email address or mobile telephone number, please let us know so we can update our records - email .

Once you've registered we will then be able to send you messages via your email or the app for free, and it will cost you nothing to reply to the messages or contact us via the app.

1. Register - using the same email address and mobile number held by the school

2. Four digit PIN - School Gateway will send you a text with your PIN

3. Login - you are ready to go


There are also additional benefits to our new School Gateway app as you can view your child's personal information (and send us a message with any updates for FREE via the app), view your child's timetable, receive school related communications easily, such as letter, newsletters, and reports, as well as links to useful information on the website – term dates, news and events, calendar, facebook and twitter.

We hope that you appreciate, with less funding and tighter budgets, using this app will save BSCA the cost of:

  • Printing and posting letters.
  • Cost of sending texts.

And reduce our impact on the environment, but it will also allow us to provide you with more information at no additional cost.
