Getting Students Involved

Your students are at the centre of School Gateway, as they are in all aspects of school life, and so it’s only right that they are involved in encouraging their parents to use the app.


  • Keep time-frames short to create a sense of urgency
  • Ask students to encourage their parents to download the app
  • The year/form/house who have the highest percentage of parent inclusion win!
  • Set download School Gateway as homework
  • Remember to chase up students that haven’t done the homework
  • If information for a trip has been put on School Gateway, ask students to remind parents to book it through the app
