New app-Have you downloaded it?
Have you downloaded our new communication app??
You must download our new communication app, it is the only way you will now receive information from school. Already this week we have sent out information about the Reception, Year 4 and Year 5 videos of their Christmas Performances. Make sure you aren't missing out!
A big thank you to all of the parents that have signed up to the new app, we hope that you like what you have seen so far. The app will become more active in the new year when we will be using it to send out all letters home, newsletters and parental correspondence. You can already use the app to report a child's absence and to update your contact details. Please help us to get as many parents as possible signed up by telling other parents about it in your children's classes, if they say that they haven't had an invite please tell them to contact the school office.
This is some further information from the newsletter last week
We have now launched our brand-new app from Parentapps that will greatly improve the way we communicate with parents and carers. The app will provide you with instant access to our calendar, event information, photo galleries and class pages. It also will link directly to our website.
Additionally, you will be able to view and sign consent forms for trips and activities, receive secure documents, and report absences directly from within the app. It also enables us to invite multiple family members to download the app, ensuring that the right people have access to important information regarding your child.
The app is now being used to send out direct and group messages to parents as needed and has replaced our current text messaging service with teachers2parents, but you have to be signed up to receive them and any information from school.
Lastly, the app is fully secure and GDPR compliant and in order to access it you will need to be invited via email. Important – if you don’t currently receive emails from school, please contact us so that we can add you email address to our records.
Please look for an email invitation from Parentapps with further instructions on downloading and accessing the application via either a smart phone or tablet.
If you have any questions, please get in touch.
