Improving School Communications with ParentMail
Communicating with parents is an important part of what we do, making sure you get the correct information about activities, events and things that really matter is something we care about.
From the start of the new academic year, Wednesday 4th August 2019, we will be using ParentMail, a service used by over 6,000 schools, nurseries and children’s clubs to communicate to parents. ParentMail will be beneficial to you because you can:
• Use a free mobile app on Android and iOS to pick up school messages instantly.
• Top up dinner and breakfast club money, or pay for schools trips and uniform items in just a few taps.
• Complete forms, give consent/permissions and give feedback on surveys.
• Book parents’ evening appointments.
• And much, much more!
Registering with ParentMail is very easy! Over the next few days you will be sent either an email and/or text message from ParentMail, when you receive this please just follow the instructions in the message.
Please be assured that ParentMail is registered with the Information Commissioner and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
Once registered, if you have an Android or Apple smartphone, we highly recommend you download the ParentMail App for the best user experience. To do this, simply search for “ParentMail” in your App store.
If you need any additional information or assistance, please visit the help site: https://www.parentmail.co.uk/help/parenthelp/ or if you have not received any contact from ParentMail within 7 days please contact the school office.
