Improving School Communications with ParentMail
Communicating with parents is an important part of what we do, making sure you get the correct information about activities, events and things that really matter is something we care about.
From Wednesday 6th June 2018 we will be using ParentMail, a service used by over 6,000 schools, nurseries and children’s clubs to communicate to parents.
ParentMail will be beneficial to you because you can:
- Use a free mobile app on Android and iOS to pick up school messages instantly
- Top up dinner money or pay for schools trips/items in just a few taps
- Complete forms, give consent/permissions for trips and clubs plus give feedback on surveys
- Keep on top of school meetings and events
- Book parents‘ evening appointments
- And much, much more!
Registering with ParentMail is very easy! After half term you will be sent either an email and/or text message from ParentMail, when you receive this please just follow the instructions in the message.
Please be assured that ParentMail is registered with the Information Commissioner and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
St Matthews Primary School will also hold a copy of this information on our secure computer network for the purposes of transferring it to ParentMail and contacting you directly if required. For further information on how we store and process your data please see our Privacy Notice and Data Management Policy on our website.
Once registered, if you have an Android or Apple smartphone, we highly recommend you download the ParentMail app for the best user experience. To do this, simply search for “ParentMail”.
