Bett 2022: Highlights from the Parentapps team


After a two-and-a-bit year hiatus, Bett was back for 2022, and Education enthusiasts from across the world were in attendance. Whilst footfall was understandably down on previous years, particularly for schools who are still dealing admirably with the day-to-day challenges of Covid-19, it was still a busy, rewarding, and hectic few days.

Our Parentapps team headed off to Excel London to represent Community Brands UK alongside the Assembly team. From the day one, there was a buzz around our CBUK stand as the teams spoke to staff from schools, academies and MATs about our Parentapps services. It was great to be back at a big, live event, and the turnout was great!



Whilst discussing all things school communications and handing out lots of fun freebies (our fruity-scented bath fizzers went down a storm!), we noticed a pattern of people asking similar questions. Here’s our round up of the most frequently asked questions in case you are wondering the same things.


Is everything really in one place?


We know, incredible – but it is! Parentapps is a one-stop-shop: all of our features are accessible through the school app or dashboard. No other systems are needed. Check out our full range of features here.


Can parents make payments through Parentapps?


Yes – Parentapps Payments is a great feature to help with school meals, school trips, school club management and so much more. Find out more about our Payments system here.


Can we operate Parents’ Evenings with the app?


Yes you can. Through our booking system, organising parents’ evenings takes seconds: lay out your schedules and send out invitations, let parents select their preferred slots and add the meeting to their calendar automatically.


Does Parentapps integrate with our school’s MIS?


Yes – Parentapps integrates with all major MIS solutions. Want to double check if we integrate with yours? Get in touch.


Is the app personalised to our school?


Yes – our app is bespoke and designed around your school logo and colours. Did you know we offer school photography and videography packages? These are a great addition for your app and school website.

Bett was a great learning experience and chance for us to network with other outstanding EdTech businesses. We loved exploring the 2 halls, jam packed with exciting businesses – from fresh start-ups to world renowned brands. Some brands really stood out with their super interactive stands. (And possibly because they were offering an endless supply of coffee… There was even a stand making fresh crepes!)

On the Wednesday night, we had the pleasure of sponsoring and attending the incredible awards ceremony, celebrating achievements across the EdTech industry. It was such a fun experience, especially with celebrity host Sindhu Vee entertaining the audience. We loved watching the winners collect their well-deserved awards, and our very own Emil Willis even had the pleasure of presenting one! The dinner was a great chance to network with other businesses and the perfect excuse to get all dressed up!

If you didn’t get chance to catch us at Bett, we would love to talk to you about Parentapps at one of our other events lined up for this year. Find us next at the Schools and Academies Show on April 27th in London, Stand D26, or check out our events page to see when we’re visiting your area!
