School Gateway

Coston Primary School uses School Gateway to send texts and emails to parents and for parents to make online payments to school via instant bank transfer or debit card. This means that you will be able to make online payments for school trips, tickets, etc via the School Gateway smartphone app or website. 

We will notify you by text or email when new items such as school trips or tickets for events are available for payment on School Gateway. You will also be able to give online consent, where required, for your child to take part in activities.

Aside from saving the school time and money on administration, School Gateway will also make it easier for parents to pay any time and reduce the amount of cash being carried by children on school premises.

It is very quick and easy to activate your School Gateway account.  All you need are your email address and mobile number that the school holds on record for you.

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

You can also visit the website: and click on ‘New User’. You will receive a text message with a PIN number. Use this PIN to log into School Gateway.

If you’re having trouble logging in, it may be because the school doesn’t have your current email and mobile phone number on record. Please call the school and we will update the details on our system.
