What do we want?

We want to purchase a Primary School parental engagement communications app from Apps Central. The app can send calendar, news, important information and messages to parents, and over 300 primaries are currently using the service. The app is available for iphone, ipad and android devices.

The calendar in the app can be populated via an Outlook calendar, Google calendar or manually. There is also the ability to feed the calendar from the app on to the schools website. The news section can be populated using an RSS feed from the school website and/or by a twitter feed.

For more info, visit the Apps Central website here.

Who is this for?

E.g. This is for all of our KS2 children.

Why do we want it?

[Teacher to complete: You can build on or edit the text below to personalise your pitch and explain why you want the product. What difference will it make to your pupils? How will it benefit their learning and help them fulfil their potential?]

This app will provide a number of benefits for our school:

  • Significant reduction in incoming calls because the school is putting the important information in the most convenient place for parents - their smartphone
  • Reducing costs - less photocopying / printing of newsletters, more environmental and saving time as well
  • Reducing text costs through unlimited use of push notifications
  • Communicating to a wider audience (the text is sent to just one person) because then one person can download the app in the household. Many grandparents are downloading the app
  • Much better and more frequent communications
