Communication has changed dramatically in the last few years. More and more of us have smartphones and tablets that allow us to work, interact and stay updated on the move. Part of this revolution has been the development of apps that make our lives easier, more responsive and keep us informed whether we are at home, work or on holiday.
One area that apps have revolutionised how we interact is in our schools. More and more primary and secondary schools are introducing apps to keep parents up-to-date and helping to reduce the amount of time spent on admin in the process. Here are just a few of the benefits of getting a free app for your school today:
- Ofsted are keen on the idea that schools communicate clearly and effectively with parents to make sure they know what is going on.
- Mobile apps help to keep parents, pupils and staff informed instantly, all at the touch of a button.
- Parents can receive smart notifications of upcoming events, reminders or problems at the school.
- They reduce the number of incoming calls from parents with queries because most of the information is available to hand on their smartphone or tablet.
- It reduces the amount of time your admin staff are handling parent related queries, freeing up time for other activities.
- You don’t have to spend money on text messaging – you can get information straight out to parents for free using the free unlimited notification system on the app.
- Introducing an app that cuts down on paperwork can help reduce the carbon footprint of your school, something every organisation has to work hard to achieve.
- The app is simple to use and can be easily updated by selected individuals in the school office, sending information immediately to those who need it.
- Use a school app smartly and you could be saving up to £10,000 a year in administration costs such as staff time and printing or calling and texting costs.
- The app is hosted securely on our own dedicated system with the promise of 100% uptime so you don’t have to worry about any breaks in service.
