Keep Up To Date
Parents are kept up to date with crucial information such as school closures or schedule changes via push notifications.
We often get asked if it is worth having a school app if the school website is fully responsive. The answer? It depends how focused each school is on parental engagement!
A responsive site allows parents to view your school website on any device. It will perfectly fit the screen they're viewing, with minimal panning and scrolling. That said, parents will still have to navigate the site to find the information they require.
With a bespoke school app we only show the most useful and important information, such as Calendar and News, so parents have the ability to check dates and events quickly from their smartphone screen. Our app also filters information so parents only have to view the year group that applies to their child - making it more efficient for busy parents.
This is not forgetting the push notification and messaging service - sending alerts direct to a parents phone ensures they're always kept up to date.
