Our School App

 

You may have noticed over the past few academic years that we have made some changes to the way that we communicate school life with you. In 2017 we launched our text message service, in 2018 we introduced weekly newsletters and our Twitter page, in 2019 we began communicating via email and this year we have launched a brand new website.

In addition to all of the improvements we have made; we are pleased to inform you that we will be launching our first School App on Wednesday 9th December.

Our new App is free to download and is available for both Apple and Android devices. It will provide you with instant access to our term dates, newsletters, social media, website and much more.

Our new app will make it easier for you to find the information you need, it will improve the way we communicate information to you and it will make it easier for you to contact and send information to us.

Additionally, you will be able to view and submit consent forms easily and receive secure documents. The app will also enable you to invite additional family members, ensuring that the right people have access to important information.

The app is fully secure and GDPR compliant and in order to access it you will need to be invited via email on Wednesday 9th December.

Over the next month we will be phasing out emails from our school email address and texts from teachers to parents. We will use the app to send targeted messages via push notifications.

We have put together a full tutorial/guide for our new app which is included with this letter. The tutorial/guide will also be available for limited time on our school website on a dedicated page in the Parents section of the website.

Please look out for an email invitation from Parentapps with further instructions on how to download and access the app. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
