School Comms/Online Payments

Login to School Comms

We have bought into a system to support with payments for school meals and trips etc. We will be using Schoolcomms to offer you an online payment method. You can access this any time, track how much you have paid, what is outstanding and make payments directly to us using your debit or credit card. You will also be able to see what meals have been taken by your child.

To start

To start you will need to register for a School Gateway account from www.schoolgateway.com. You will need to enter your email address and mobile number we have on record for you.

When you have entered your email address and mobile number, select the Send PIN button, a PIN number will be sent to your mobile phone. You can then use this PIN number to log into the School Gateway and view/ make payments.

Payment requests

When there is money owing to the Academy, we can set up payment requests and you will be notified by text or email that there is a payment request available. Simply log in using your email address and your PIN number, select the payment request(s) you wish to fulfil and follow the Wizard through to pay.

You can see a record of the payments that you’ve made and receipts are sent to your registered email address for all transactions you make.

The new system removes the need to send money into the Academy with your child, removing the chance of money going astray, making it convenient for you to pay when it suits you, from anywhere at any time of day or night.

Secure

Your card details are not visible or stored in the Schoolcomms or school system. All card information is processed by Barclaycard. You log in using the email address registered with the Academy and with your PIN number.

If you have any questions about this, please contact us at the Academy. The designated person looking after your queries in the Academy is Miss J Smith, Finance Officer.
