We are pleased to announce the release of a new app for schools, built using a technology called PWA (Progressive Web App) The app is super easy for parents and carers to install on their mobile device and we do all the hard work by setting the app up for your school.
Our new school app is super easy for you to use and integrates within your existing school website dashboard. The controls are easy and intuitive and you can update key information on the app including your school name, contact details and which email address at school receives pupil absence notifications.
Content delivered to the app is taken directly from your school website and includes calendar events, latest news and direct messages, which offers a potential cost saving if you are spending money on text message bundles. The app also includes an absence reporting tool for parents and carers to use.
Making use of the latest technology has helped reduce development time and cost, which means we can pass this saving on to schools.
• Receive absence notifications by email from the app and via your website dashboard.
• Fast app install on mobile devices.
• Allows parents and carers to browse the app when not online, therefore increasing engagement
