Good communication is the key to improving parental engagement in schools. But parent-school communications can be costly. It also comes in many forms, often requiring many methods and systems. This can confuse staff and parents.
A simpler way to keep parents engaged in learning is through a parental engagement app
. With an app, you can connect with parents in real-time via a single login. The result? Parents gain instant access to their child's life at school - anytime, anywhere, in a matter of seconds.
Tools such as Schoolcomms’ Parent App
are designed to simplify parent communication to improve engagement. And it needn't cost a thing. With free two-way app messaging and Online Reporting on offer, your school can enjoy massive cost-savings, simply by going paperless.
With apps like School Gateway
, you can share free school resources, reports, homework, news, timetables, online consent forms, and surveys with parents directly to their smartphones. This can transform the way you communicate with parents and carers. This small effort can make a huge difference to levels of parental engagement, especially with hard-to-reach parents.
In short: a specialist parental engagement app can not only save you time but money too. And with parents receiving updates on their child's progress in real-time, everyone is a winner!
