Keeping my details up to date
As a school, it is vital that we hold the most up to date details for our parents. This is in order for us to keep you updated, for example to send you school letters via email or telephone you in an emergency.
To keep your details up to date with us, we have an App that you are able to download to your mobile phone. The App allows you to see the details that we hold for you, and importantly to confirm that they are correct or tell us about anything that isn’t.
We would like a 100% rate of parents using the App, so that we know all of our information is correct.
I have never used the app before
Please check your email account for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org, with an invitation code. If you do not have an email with an invitation code, please email email@example.com with your child’s name and form and we will resend it.
Click the link in the email, then follow the instructions on the screen to register for the Parent App. You will need to choose a service to use to login, such as Google, Microsoft, Twitter, etc. and you will then need to enter the invitation code from the email.
