We are pleased to inform you that we are launching a brand-new app from ‘Parentapps’ that will greatly improve the way we communicate with our parents/carers!
The new version of the app will provide you with instant access to our calendar, event information, holiday dates, photo galleries and much more. It also will link directly to our school website. In addition, you will be able to view and submit consent forms, 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(ren).
You may have realised that we have been without a text messaging service over the past couple of months. The new school app will allow us to send both direct and group messages to our parents/carers as needed. As messages within the app are free for us to send, this will now completely replace the text messaging service.
It is important to note that the new school app is fully secure and GDPR compliant. In order for parents/carers to access the app, we will need to send you an invitation via email. Your email will be used to send a personalised invitation and a text message to follow with an authorisation code to grant you access. Your child will be bringing a letter home. In order for us to send you an email invitation, please return the reply slip to school as soon as possible.
