ParentMail

Improving School Communications with ParentMail

Communicating with parents is an important part of what we do, making sure you get the correct information about school news, activities and things that really matter is something we care about.

Registering with ParentMail is very easy! Over the next few days 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

It is important for all parents/carers to download the app onto their smartphone as you will not receive any correspondence by just registering. It is vital that parents and carers ensure that we have their correct up to date mobile telephone numbers as this will be our main form of communication going forward.

From January 2019, 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.
  • Have an account simply for school messages (away from your busy email inbox!)
  • Connect to other schools, nurseries or clubs that use ParentMail.
  • Highlight important messages or archive old messages to make life easier.
  • Messages can be sent directly to mums, dads and carers – even grandparents

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.

If you need any additional information or assistance, please visit the help site: www.parentmail.co.uk/help/parenthelp/  or if you have not received any contact from ParentMail within 7days please contact the school office.
