“ The quality of ICT support is both innovative and extremely open with regards to pupil progress information shared with parents: it is updated daily” (LPPA)
A software solution that delivers letters, messages and alerts directly to a parent's desktop. A parent simply downloads a small piece of software to their computer and any time a letter or important message is sent home an alert pops up on their screen. It’s as simple as that; if the school issues a letter or message relevant to a child’s year group then a copy will be sent directly to a parents’ desktop, instantly. (SSAT)
Schools can send automatic text messages to parents' cell phones, alerting them of an important "News Flash". Parents can then check the school’s website for specifics e.g. information about special situations, like early school closings, changes in special test schedules, school photo days, money due for field trip, and so forth.
