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.

Improve Safeguarding

Our secure parental communication app, Parent Apps 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

Parent Apps Connect allows you to send all your newsletters and forms electronically through the school 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.
