A simple and cost-effective way of keeping in touch with parents and carers.

Anything else is just 'old school'

These days many people run their lives from their smartphone - messaging, planning and generally making stuff happen. But when it comes to dealing with their child's school, things aren't always as convenient.

mySchoolApp changes all that, delivering the info they need, on the device they use for everything else.

It helps you to communicate with them in a way that fits in with their lives, and in a way that's easy for you to manage.

  • an app that's completely free for parents to download
  • branded to your school, using your colours and logo
  • instant access to an up-to-date school calendar
  • all school contact details in one place
  • free messaging to all school app users plus NEW private group option (ideal for updating staff, SLT, governors, etc.)
  • details on news and events, complete with timings, travel arrangements and links to maps
  • share information via social media
  • managing absence notifications and absence requests securely
  • provide access to school policies and other important documents, including 'letters home'

We have exciting plans for future updates which will add new features to help both parents and schools too.

The techy stuff

mySchoolApp works on smartphones and tablet devices that are running Apple iOS or Android, and it can be downloaded free of charge by users from the iTunes Store and Google Play.

Information can be entered into the app via our easy-to-use web based mSA Portal, which is fully secure. All you have to do is log in on a desktop or tablet and you're all set.

The portal really is very user friendly, but if anyone does get stuck, then technical support is easily available. Our comprehensive online troubleshooting and FAQ area is a good place to start, or we also offer telephone support as well if you need it. mySchoolApp can operate as a standalone service or be integrated into your existing website* saving you from having to enter information twice.

* Available at an additional cost. Technical compatibility would need to be confirmed.
