We will be moving to a new communication provider called Schoolcomms straight after the Easter holiday and will no longer be using the company Keep Kids Safe. Between now and Easter you may receive from both these providers.
Schoolcomms will enable Marriotts to text, email and send electronic reports home. As a parent/guardian you will have a school gateway login (details below). The login is for Priority 1 contact where the student lives, and you will be able to view
> Your child’s latest timetable
> Behaviour for Learning, points and action
> Achievements on the day and what they received the points for
> Your contact details (you will be able to message us with any changes to your home or mobile numbers from this portal).
From time to time, we send information to parents via text message to your mobile phone. A new, free, smartphone app for parents is now available for download called ‘School Gateway’ for Apple (iPhone 3GS or later, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android (2.3 / Gingerbread or later) devices.
Please could you download this new app to your phone (it’s free) as it will help us improve communication with parents – and save the school money.
The set-up process is simple and will take no more than a couple of minutes:
2. Install the app and if you are asked then say yes to “Allow Push Notifications”
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
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.
