For a specialist SEN school where each child has their own unique needs, parental engagement is a key priority. With SEN school apps, teachers can keep parents informed of everything that's going on to reduce anxieties and improve the links within the school-home support network.
- Better parental communication for special needs schools: Parental communication in schools for special needs is essential. SEN school apps can act as a home-school diary featuring text, pictures and video clips of the day's events, as well as linking through to key statutory information and sending reminders about recurring events in the school week.
- Improving SEN school support: SEN school apps also help to improve two-way communications with parents, bolstering relationships and enhancing the care and support each child receives. Surveys and questionnaires can be sent to parents, as well as permission slips and messages about upcoming events. This provides peace of mind about their child’s wellbeing and that their needs are being met.
- Freeing up funds for SEN school resources: Time and money are one of the most precious resources in any SEN school, and often in short supply. By investing in an SEN school app, you can reduce both the administration time involved in parental engagement, as well as the amount spent on letters home or text messages, allowing you devote more of your resources to pupil support.

"Parents know what is going on in the classroom and it has improved relationships with the teachers and parents who use it. In fact, there has been a ripple effect and it’s gone from parental engagement to family engagement, which is fantastic.”
