School Gateway

Ashton is pleased to announce that from the start of this academic year, we have introduced a new facility for parents. ‘School Gateway’ is the online ‘School Comms’ parent portal which is available 24/7 and can be accessed via an app or online. We are confident that this new system will revolutionise how the school communicates with parents. The app will give parents instant access to the following information about their child via your phone or the internet.

Pupil Information

  • Attendance – Notification if your child is absent and the facility to respond why.
  • Timetable- the opportunity to view your child’s timetable for the week.
  • Positive Achievements – Notifications will be sent through to you when your child goes above and beyond in their work in school.

Teacher/Class messages

  • Information regarding homework with tips or examples.
  • Deadline for projects.
  • General class updates and information.

General school information

  • Weekly Head’s letter
  • Information on school events/trips
  • Contact information
  • School News

The app has further capacity for the School to provide additional information including online reporting which we will look to develop during this academic year.
