Improve Parent Teacher Communication
👨👩👧 Better parental engagement: With a school app, you can quickly and easily send messages, notifications and alerts directly to parents' phones or tablets. It’s the ideal reference point for parents to find out information about events, term dates, school news and more.
📎 Reduce admin for staff: Communication with parents can be difficult and schools are well-aware of the "missing newsletter in the school bag" scenario. With a school app, replies are collected automatically and users can be prompted if a response is overdue.
💷 Reduce the costs of school comms: Schools spend a lot of money on printing costs. School apps can help to reduce this by thousands of pounds. Content and materials can all be distributed digitally with a school app that can be downloaded from both the Apple and Android stores, and they not only cut the costs mentioned but they're also eco-friendly.
💭 School apps are forward thinking: It's important for schools to make the most of the technology at their disposal. A customisable school app is must in the 21st Century, with smartphones being the most effective method of communication in all areas of life, including schools. Using the app to improve parental engagement and collect feedback also provides evidence to governors and Ofsted of the school's effectiveness.
