Handling communications as an international school can be complicated, especially with the potential for parents and other family members to be in completely different areas of the world. A school app can help to keep parents involved through a one-stop-shop of information about events, news and teaching.
- Improved communications: Notifications can be sent in real-time, directly to parents’ devices, meaning that they are always in the loop about what’s happening with their child’s education.
- Cutting the cost: Overseas communication can be especially expensive, but the use of a school app means that family members, no matter where they are, can be reached directly and immediately.
- Looking to the future: Having a dedicated school app puts you at the forefront of technology use in education, it is individualised to your students and parents and streamlines the time spent by both teachers and parents in sending and reviewing information and news.
“Whilst having my Ofsted visit in July 2015, I showed the inspector my Julie’s Childcare App! She was really impressed with it, especially as an engagement tool for communication between school setting and parents.”
– Julie Nixon, Headteacher, Julie’s childcare
