Effective home-school communication is vital. It ensures that everyone stays informed about the latest developments, fosters inclusivity, and strengthens relationships.
With a plethora of communication methods available, including SMS, Facebook Messenger, email, Telegram, WhatsApp, and more, the options seem endless. But here’s the question: Did your message reach everyone?
Even though we’re more connected than ever through the various platforms, when it comes to getting the most current and relevant information, we all tend to turn to the organisation’s website. Need to know if the school is open or when that exciting trip is returning? The website is our first stop. This is evident in Google’s website traffic data, which shows a surge in visitors during significant events like snowfall in the winter.

So, why not ensure that your crucial messages are prominently displayed on your school’s website? Well, you’ve got it – embedded within our Schools platform is a user-friendly school alerts system that places your essential messages right in the spotlight, where they can’t be missed.
Our system is incredibly versatile and straightforward to use. It has the function for messages to be scheduled so they are removed after a certain length of time, along with the ability to set the colours so your message can be as eye catching or as subtle as you need.
