A great range of features means your school could go paperless too!

mySchoolApp Home – school app features

mySchoolApp home Home

Fully branded to your school, our home screen gives parents an at-a-glance view of what’s coming up at school.

mySchoolApp Calendar Calendar

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!

mySchoolApp News News

Update your school 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.

mySchoolApp Translations Translations

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.

mySchoolApp Absence Absence

Save time in the school 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.

mySchoolApp Gallery Gallery

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.

mySchoolApp Contact Contact

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)

mySchoolApp Messages App Messaging

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.

mySchoolApp Documents Documents

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.

mySchoolApp Consent Consent (option)

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.

mySchoolApp My Child My Child (option)

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.

mySchoolApp Push Notifications – school app features

Questions? We have the answers

Does the app work for all phones?

mySchoolApp is available for Apple iOS and Android devices. And it’s free to download for parents.

What’s the cost for a school with 1200 students on roll?

We don’t charge per pupil (we think that’s the fair way). mySchoolApp is just £350 per year with unlimited users. So Mums, Dads, carers, child minders, Gran, Auntie and students themselves, can all be in the know.

Will my data be safe?

All of our schools’ data is held in the UK on our super-fast dedicated servers. These are protected by dual firewalls and are located in a secure Data Centre, with off-site backups.

Is mySchoolApp GDPR compliant?

Yes. But we don’t stop there, as we are constantly reviewing our processes to ensure we are meeting or exceeding the guidelines provided by the ICO. Sentio Media is registered with GDPR in Schools (https://www.gdpr.school/)

Do you offer a solution for MATs?

The mySchoolApp platform is ideally suited to providing a unified solution for a MAT. Your own Trust app tile and every school with their own branding. And at an affordable cost too. Call us on 01908 336555 or email info@myschoolapp.co.uk to find out more.

Do you offer support?

We have a full support website for school admins and parents available 24/7. This is backed up with a ticket-based email support service. And during office hours we’re always happy to help out, on the phone.

Is there a limit to the number of messages I can send per month?

No, app messaging is unlimited. However you need to be aware of not overloading parents. That’s why we have group messaging, so every message received is relevant to each parent. If you’re currently using text messaging, try our savings calculator above to see how much mySchoolApp could save your school.

Can I control who can access our school app?

Yes it’s simple. We have a great solution to help you get the parents (and only the parents, if that’s what you choose) on board and using the app quickly and with very little effort on your part.

Can you link the app to our website?

This is a paid option which will sync your web news and calendar events with the app on a nightly basis. Please call for more details.
