- Tell me about your School App
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.
