We are very excited to be able to announce the launch of our new School App for mobile devices.
This app, we hope, will revolutionise the way we communicate with parents and make it much easier for our parents and carers to be able to contact the school, gain up to date information about their child, as well as keep updated on recent news and events all on your phone or tablet.
The picture here will give you an idea of how the app looks when you download it to your device.
Key benefits for parents include:
• Being able to sync term dates to your online calendar
• Being able to make direct contact with school through the app, including reporting absences or messaging departments.
• Receive and store all messages from school within the app rather than on your phone.
• Being able to keep up to date with your child’s attendance, achievements and behaviour points.
• Being able to use the app as a portal to Wisepay and Moodle.
• Being able to complete and submit forms such as school trip consent forms through the app.
• Be able to receive your child’s school report through the app.
• Being able to read the latest school news directly through the app.
We are still in the process of updating and customising some of the features of the app in the next couple of weeks, but in the meantime we would like to encourage as many parents as possible to download the app and register to receive your child’s or children’s details.
If you do not have access to a mobile device or have not downloaded the app, you will still continue to receive messages from school in the form of text messages and emails.
We hope that you will agree that the investment the school has made in this technology will be of great benefit, but if you would like to learn more about it before you download it you can watch a short video below.
We will be promoting the app over the coming weeks to ensure as many people as possible download it. We will keep you updated as new features are added.
Keeping your child safe online.
