School Comms Smartphone App and Website For Payments

Did you know? Here at Shelfield parents can pay for cashless catering, trips and purchasing Uniform.  For more details and help on how to get the app click on read more.

 We are pleased to announce that we’ve introduced a new service – ‘School Gateway’. This means that you will be able to make online payments via the School Gateway smartphone app or website. You will also be able to view school meal balances and top them up at any time.

We will notify you by text or email when new items such as trips or tickets for events are available for payment on School Gateway. The system also enables us to get online consent, where required, for your child to take part in activities.

School Gateway will make it easier for you to pay the academy any time 24-7 and reduce the amount of money being carried by your child onto the academy premises. It is also a great way for you to keep track of any outstanding balances for trips alongside your child’s school meal balances.

How do I get the app?

Activate your School Gateway account. It’s quick and easy to do. All you need are your email address and mobile number that the Academy holds on record for you.

  • Download the app: if you have a smartphone, please download School Gateway form your app store (Andriod and iPhone). The app shows the same information as the website PLUS it saves the school money when we send a text message.


  • Visit the website: and click on ‘New User’. You’ll receive a txt message with a PIN number. Use this PIN to log into School Gateway.

If you’re having trouble logging in, it will be because the academy doesn’t have your current email address or up to date mobile number on the system.  Please either call reception at the academy or email your details to and we will update your details on our system. 

**Note For ordering Uniform you must also send in a filled in order form.
