Parents are essential to their child’s education. So how can schools enhance their parental engagement without adding more pressure in these areas. School apps are the future, helping you to use the technology at your disposal to effectively communicate with your parents.
- Save time for teaching: With increasing numbers of pupils in primary classrooms, dedicating all the necessary time to classroom teaching is essential. By using a school app, teachers can quickly and easily get in touch with all parents, so that they can focus on teaching and lessons.
- Keeping parents in the know: In sharing any key information about the school, whether that’s term dates, events, or news, your school app is the “one-stop-shop” for parents to see what’s going on. Knowing what’s going on during the school day, will help to inspire out-of-school learning and parental engagement.
- Reducing costs on communication: The average school spends around £60,000 a year on printing alone – Imagine if your parental engagement was all done digitally? By investing in a dedicated school app, no information will ever get lost, costs are reduced per message, and details are uploaded to a central system rather than being sent directly.
“[Our] school app has saved us money. It is so quick to get the information out to parents. No photocopying newsletters - just straight out to the target audience."
