Features below show a future version of mySchoolApp, due for release later this year.
All mySchoolApp customers will migrate to this version at no cost.
This is where parents land when they open your school app. Designed to provide an at a glance view of what’s coming up at school and a chance to let them see the latest news too.
Parents tell us this is by far the most important feature on mySchoolApp. Presented with a clear layout, the calendar offers the option to view as a list and refine by category.
Update your school news as it happens and it’s available to read on parents’ phones straight away. This feed builds into a complete archive of school news and possibly means you could ‘retire’ the school newsletter.
Save time in the school office when parents notify you of their child’s absence via the app. PIN/Touch ID secured to ensure notifications are actually sent by the parent or carer.
Engage with EAL parents, without creating any additional work for school admin’s using our free translation option. All the text content you add (news, events, consent etc.) can be viewed in a huge range of languages, selected by the user on the app settings page.
Make everyone’s life easier by adding items to your shop on mySchoolApp. Parents can buy and pay securely. No more unmarked envelopes of cash or unattributed payments in your account.
Add albums of images easily. School plays, trips, Football even an art gallery. The list is endless and will encourage parents to download and use the app.
All the school’s contact details in one place. Tap to call or email. Option to add contact details for staff members. Parents can also provide feedback to the school via a form.
Send unlimited messages to parents and carers for free. Push notifications replace text messaging. Send a note to all app users or just a group e.g. Year 7 or the science club.
Provide access on the app to those all important documents – Policies, Letters home, Forms Surveys. In addition, this feature can be used to provide a link to School videos on YouTube or Vimeo.
Cut down on paper-based administration between school and parents/carers. Add one-off or blanket consent forms at the start of the year and at any time for visit-specific consent.
Parents can view a dashboard with details of their child. Attendance, Punctuality and achievement are all displayed in a graphic format.
