School Lunches

Dear Parents and carers,

We are very excited to be introducing Chefs in School as our new catering team at St. Ann’s!

All school related dinner bookings and payments will need to made through the School Gateway app, which we will be using to facilitate payment for your young person’s meal from 02/09/2020. We intend that the system will be live by 12/10/2020.

To pay for the meals your young person has enjoyed since the start of term and to ensure your account is in credit for future meals, please download the app for free. Just search School Gateway in your App store and download.

You can also login to the online version of School Gateway via this site if you do not have a smart phone, although we do recommend using the app if possible as this is the simplest way of managing your account.

Kind regards,

How to get School Gateway on your mobile device (This app must be used to pay for school meals)

  • In your device’s app store, search for ‘School Gateway’.

Install the app with this logo:  

  • Once downloaded, open the app and go to the bottom of the page where it says ‘Don’t have an account? Sign up.’ Here, you will need to enter your main email address that the school has for you, followed by your mobile phone number.
  • Press ‘Send PIN’ and you will then receive a text message with your PIN, which you should then enter when you are back at the login page under ‘PIN’. You will be able to change this to something more memorable once you have access to your personal settings in the app.

Please note: If the school does not have your main email address, which is the one you need to log on to the app, you will not receive access to School Gateway so please ensure the school office has the correct email address.
