School Gateway allows us to communicate with parents quickly and cost effectively via email, text and smartphone app.
Sending information out to parents by post currently costs the school a significant amount in terms of paper, postage and staff time. Our hope is that by reducing the costs in this area we can protect funding to those areas that directly affect our students.
You can also use the system to pay for school meals and trips, view your child's timetable and access your child's reports.
We are able to send you app messages (avoiding the costs of texts) and you can send messages back for free too. In addition to this you are able to see more information about your child, including their attendance and latest timetable.
It’s quick and easy to download the app. All you need is your email address and mobile number that school holds on record for you. If you have a smartphone you can download the School Gateway app from your app store (Android and iPhone).
If you have trouble logging in, please contact the school on 0161 8821150 and we can check the details that we have for you.
Please note: emails from the system will have the sender SC3524281a@schoolcomms.com and text messages will come from the number +441915800964. We suggest you set up the email address as a safe sender and save the number in your phone as “CHS Message”.
If you do not have a smartphone, you will still receive text messages from the school and can access the School Gateway website to view attendance and timetable information.
In addition to parents being able to use the School Gateway app, students can also access the app. It would let them access their timetables and receive reminders about exams, trips and events. Students have told us that they would find access to this useful. In order for your child to do this, we need your consent to give us their email address and mobile phone number.
