School Gateway

Login to School Gateway

Burscough Priory Academy uses School Gateway for communication and online payments. The service allows the academy to share information with ‘Priority 1’ and 'Priority 2' parents, as well as students online via a smartphone app, email or text message.

‘Priority’ parents are able to view their child’s attendance, timetable, advise the school of reasons for their child’s absence and notify the school of updates to their child’s contact details and medical conditions.

Students are able to view their timetable and personal details.

It saves costs for the academy if parents use the App, as this allows us to send App messages at no cost, which can be useful in the event of academy closures, reminders and emergencies.

To use School Gateway, the school needs to have an up to date email address and mobile number for the ‘Priority 1 and 2’ parent(s). If the school does not already have this information, please email to with the email address and mobile number to be used. We may need to verify these details and the person sending it prior to updating our system.

To create a School Gateway account, either:

  • Download the app: If you have a smartphone or tablet, please download School Gateway from your app store (Android and iPhone). The app shows the same information as the website PLUS you can message the school for FREE. When installing the app, please ensure you say yes to allow push notifications, otherwise you will not receive any of the messages.
  • Visit the website: Visit and click on ‘New User’.

If parents do not wish to use the School Gateway service, as long as they have provided us with an up to date email address and mobile number, they will still be able to receive non-personalised letters and school reports by email and texts from us.

Should you need any further information then please do not hesitate to contact the academy.

Browse to the School Gateway login page here.

If you have previously registered your account, enter your linked email address and PIN number originally sent via text message (if you do not have a record of this, you may request a new PIN on the page).

If you have not previously registered, you may enter the email address and mobile number you provided to school. If the details do not match, please contact school on for us to check this. If the details match, you will be sent a PIN via text message which you will use to login to your account.

Once in school gateway, you will see information about your child, including their timetable, lunch purchases and any available payment items.

On the lunch money page, you can view their previous purchases in the school canteen and also top-up funds on their account. Note that students in receipt of free school meals (FSM) get a daily lunch allowance of £2.50 and funds are only needed for purchases over this amount, or during break time.

When making a payment, you will need to use a valid credit or debit card.
