You've got your own website, now get an App, from Zero Cost for the 95% of parents/students that own a smartphone
Over 95% of parents and students now own a smartphone, spending 75% of their smartphone time on Apps, so if you haven't got an App you're probably missing a key way of communicating with them.
Whether you are a Nursery or Primary School with busy parents at work or a Secondary School or College when parents can sometimes feel they are getting less communication from their child at a very important time in their education. One smart App, can bridge that communication gap. An App with easy access to the school calendar on their smartphone, messages to keep parents informed about things that are going on in school, plus links to all the third-party systems you use in school.
Students can also get in on the action with the App giving them direct access via their smartphone to all the Apps and websites that you used in school as well as keeping them up-to-date with events in school and school news. Your own App is vital and can help improve both family and student engagement.
But which App company to go with as they are so many now? well, you could go with a generic App that isn't unique to anyone or you could go for your own App which is unique to you. We think the latter makes tonnes of sense. You have your own website, why would you not have your own App?
What about the cost though? As a team of Governors, Teachers and EdTech experts, we understand completely budgetary pressures. That's why we have a range of prices from an App with a unique Zero Cost option through to an App that not only can send your emails but also combines cutting-edge free App/Push Messaging with SMS text messages saving money against your existing 'old school' text message system.
