If you’ve found this post while looking for tips to write an engaging school newsletter, or for the perfect school newsletter template then perhaps you could look at things slightly differently and change the way your school communicates with parents/carers.
We talk to a lot of schools, and a comment we hear over and over again is: “we haven’t got the time”. We hear you, we know that all schools are busy, and it really isn’t in our interest to burden you with yet ‘another thing to do!’
However, spending a few minutes on alternative thinking might help you make some big changes – and ultimately save you precious hours!

Like any primary school Martins Wood found engaging with some parents a challenge despite using a number of different methods. The school made the decision to evaluate school apps and soon chose mySchoolApp as their preferred solution.
