Fully branded to your setting, our home screen gives parents an at-a-glance view of what’s coming up.
Providing easy access to the school calendar means children are better prepared and less calls to the school office. Full details about events can be given, including a map, if needed. And, at the tap of a button, the event can be added to the parent’s personal calendar too!
Update your news as it happens on the app and maybe you can retire the school newsletter. Frequent updates to your news feed sends out a positive message to parents about their child’s busy school.
Engage with parents who have English as an additional language (EAL), without any effort on your part. On the app they simply choose to read your content, in any one of over sixty languages.
Save time in the office every morning. Parents can notify the school via the app giving you all the information to hand, in one email. This feature is PIN/Touch ID secured to prevent misuse.
Parents love pictures. Create as many albums as you need and fill them with photos and captions of what’s been happening at school. This feature can be disabled on request.
All the information parents need to get in touch, including one-touch dialling to the school. You also have the option to include parent feedback and contact details for specific members of staff (e.g. SENCO)
Arguably, the second most important feature after the calendar. Replace costly texts with free app messages. Linked events and documents open with a single tap. Save money, go paperless.
Create all the folders you need and add documents. School Policies, Letters home, forms… the list goes on. And linking documents to app messages means an end to unreliable pupil post.
Manage parental consent via the app. With full reporting available in the admin portal. This replaces a paper-based task, that’s been a headache for schools for many years.
When you take our MIS integration option, parents can view a dashboard of their child at school – Attendance, Achievements, Behaviour. This feature is PIN/Touch ID secured.
Manage users and app content via an easy-to-use web portal. Add multiple app administrators to share the workload. Send app messages from anywhere you have an internet connection.
