Announcing Our New School App

19th Jan 2018

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new school app. It is FREE for you to download and is part of our commitment to communicate with parents, delivering the school's latest news, events, push notifications and much, much more.

The app can be used on smartphones and tablet devices running iOS or Android, and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

 

Instructions on How to Download the App 

  1. Download The first step is to get mySchoolApp on your phone or tablet. The easiest way is to use your phone to search on the app store (Apple) or Google Play (Android) for mySchoolApp. Its the one with the multi-coloured stickboy app tile. Once you have mySchoolApp on your device there are just a few things you need to do, to ensure that you get the most from your app.
  2. Login On the initial screen enter the school name. When you have entered a few letters, the app will give you some suggestions. Tap on the correct school name and your logged in. You only have to do this once, mySchoolApp will remember your school automatically in future.
  3. Registration When you have selected your school you will be required to enter your details. This is a once only form and enables the app to identify you to the school. The school app administrator will be able to see your name, email and phone number. We also request you create a pin, which is private. This will be used if you submit an absence notification via the app, ensuring only you can use this feature.

App Settings

From the app menu, select settings.

In this area you can

  • update your school contact details
  • add additional schools
  • subscribe to notification groups
  • select the language you would prefer to read the app in

Push Notifications

Push notifications enable the school to notify you of new messages or events without the need to open the app. It is recommended that you choose to accept notifications from mySchoolApp, to ensure that you receive important communications, such as school closures due to snow. If your school has created notification groups you will see these in settings. Simply opt in, to receive notifications from the groups that are of interest to you. This function enables the school to send messages to specific year groups or sports teams for example.
