Improved Text Messaging System - and You Can Help the School Save Money
Exciting new developments from Healing School - A Science Academy.
From time to time, we send information to parents via text message to your mobile phone. A new, free, smartphone app for parents is now available for download called 'School Gateway' for Apple (iPhone 3GS or later, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android (2.3 / Gingerbread or later) devices.
Please could you download this new app to your phone, (it's free) as it will help us improve communication with parents - and save the school money.
If you don't have a smartphone, this will not stop you getting text messages from the school. We will not be stopping this feature.
Online Reporting - Viewing Details About Your Child from Your Smartphone or Website
We have launched Online Reporting via this app and the School Gateway website. This will enable parents to view Attendance, Timetables and Students details. To take advantage of this exciting new development, please make sure that school has the correct email address and mobile phone number for you to enable access.
If you don't have a smartphone, you can use the School Gateway website to register your details and then you can gain access to Online Reporting.
If you've recently changed your email address or mobile telephone number, please let us know so we can update our records.
