BENEFITS FOR SCHOOLS & NURSERIES

Save Time & Money

Parentapps can help save schools thousands of pounds a year by replacing expensive text messaging services and reducing printing costs by enabling schools and nurseries to communicate with parents directly through our bespoke apps and websites.

Not only do our communication apps save schools and nurseries money but they also can save you time by bringing all of your communication methods into one easy to use platform. We pride ourselves on making it easy to communicate with parents through our custom apps and websites which have been designed with usability in mind. Schools and nurseries can spend dozens of hours every week communicating with parents and updating their websites, but with our easy to use websites and apps you can save time and focus on what really matters.

Improve Parental Engagement

As education professionals, you know the critical role parental engagement plays in improving outcomes for children, but undoubtedly also know the challenges faced when trying to effectively engage with parents today. A successful parental communication method needs to be easy for parents and schools to use and engaging enough for parents to continue to use it.

Parentapps has helped hundreds of schools across the UK and abroad improve their parental engagement through our easy to use bespoke apps.  And, through our mobile communication platform, Parentapps Connect, we can ensure that you are able to communicate with 100% of parents, 100% of the time with engaging and useful content such as individually targeted messages, consent forms, and term dates!

Improve Safeguarding

Our secure parental communication app, Parentapps Connect, can help put in place additional safeguarding measures at schools and nurseries. By utilising Parentapps Connect to communicate with parents you have the ability to limit the access of important information to only those people who have been invited by the school or nursery. This could be anything from a consent form that shares details about the timing and location of a class trip or a letter containing the child’s address at the top.

Additionally, by moving away from paper and sending these documents through the app, you can ensure that only the intended recipient is viewing this sensitive information. Also, if you become aware of a safeguarding issue you have the ability to temporarily deactivate or remove a user.

Go Paperless

Parentapps Connect allows you to send all your newsletters and forms electronically through the app, enabling schools and nurseries to make their communication methods more sustainable by reducing the amount of paper being sent out. Going paperless not only sets a great example for your students and community, but also saves schools money previously spent on printing costs. Additionally, sending communications electronically can be better from a data protection standpoint as it allows you to track who has seen the information you are sending and is more secure than a stack of papers, that could be seen by anyone.
