Paying online via Schoolcomms
Schoolcomms – We Go Live Tomorrow – 9th December
Online Payments for Dinner Tickets and Before and After School Club
We go live tomorrow with the Schoolcomms ‘School Gateway’ which will allow parents to purchase dinner tickets and sessions for our Before and After school clubs online.
This is not compulsory for parents: we will still accept cash and cheques in the office for dinner tickets and Before and After School clubs.
If you are going to be paying with childcare voucher please inform the office of the company that you use; email – email@example.com or call us 443167. Once you are set up you can still book online.
Booking before and after school club
There will be a maximum space allocation of 24 children per session. There will be a cut of time of 12.00 midday for bookings the following day. If you do miss this time call the office and see if there are any spaces: we can book you in manually.
You can also book sessions via the office, via phone or in person.
Sessions Prices for Before and After School Clubs
Before School Club – £5.00
After School Club – £12.00
Before and After School Club – £17.00
Purchasing Dinner Tickets online
If you do buy dinner tickets online please be aware that there will be a cut of time of 9.00am to order dinners for that day. The school office won’t be issuing dinner tickets for online tickets: we will have a list of orders every day from Schoolcomms. If you have ordered a meal and your child is absent we will carry the credit over. You can still buy dinner tickets using cash or cheque from the school office. We would prefer parents to use the online system please.
All Payments online
There will be a minimum transaction of £10.00 which will be a credit to your account which you can top up if you require. We have had to impose a minimum payment of £10.00 as the school will be charged for each transaction made. If this is a problem for you, please speak to Steve.
We will text parents tomorrow morning when we are live. You can also download the ‘School Gateway’ app to make payments even easier for you.
You will also be able to pay for trips, clubs and swimming etc. next term using this service.

We hope that you will find School Gateway to be a fast and easy way to pay for school items.
Using childcare vouchers to pay for before and after school club?
You will need to register your vouchers in the normal way. Then let the school office know.
Using the School Gateway, book the sessions you want and add to basket. Then email firstname.lastname@example.org to say that you want to use your vouchers to pay for these sessions, and then simply send the vouchers or codes to us.
