Apps for Primary & Junior Schools
Keeping in touch with parents is vital for primary and junior schools – whether it’s reminding them about bringing wellies in for wet weather or PE kits for sports day. It helps the school run smoothly and improves both family and pupil engagement. But with more demands on your time and money, you need a simple, effective solution that won’t cost the earth.
Say goodbye to relying on scrunched up letters in school bags and say hello to mySchoolApp – use it to keep the smartphone generation of parents updated on school news, events, payment requests and last-minute changes such as snow days and event cancellations. One tap or click will get through to all the parents you want.
We know that budgets are tighter than ever, but choosing to improve parent communication with a mobile app doesn’t mean you can’t actually save money at the same time. In fact, over 60% of our customers have already cut the costs of text messaging – with a further 20% planning to review when their text contract is due for renewal.
If there’s one thing that’s as hard to find as money in schools and colleges, it’s time. Working smart and efficiently is essential, that’s why we’ve made it clear and easy for school administrators to add and edit content for their school’s app. And, as it’s web-based, it can be done whenever and wherever you have internet access (it’s even possible to send a push note from a school bus that’s delayed in traffic).
