Great news, our school app launched this week!
We sent home an app parental overview which hopefully explained what to do with it.
Going forwards, we will be using the app to send group communications home, rather than texts. There will be a period of time where we continue to send texts, as well as messages via the app This is so that parents have time to download it and start using it. So please forgive us if for a month or two you hear about things twice!
The app reflects what is on the school website. The added benefit to it, rather than just using a mobile version of the website, is the messaging system. There will be a long list of groups you can choose to receive notifications from, e.g. football, netball, Young Voices, library etc. Additionally, each class will have their own separate group, which will allow teachers to send messages which are only relevant to their class.
