Muiredge Primary School
Muiredge Primary School in South Lanarkshire have been using the School App for Parents for just over a year and a half. Carolyn Muir who updates the app and sends messages to parents regularly has found the app to be an integral addition for them, especially over the past year.
“The app has been a lifeline for the school in these troubling times. As I keep telling all other schools, it was the best £400 we have ever spent”
Their app is managed brilliantly and they have an outstanding 904 downloads, with a pupil roll of 349, which shows the extent of the school community being reached. The news and date sections are updated regularly giving parents all the information they need when they need it. They have sent a total of 451,096 messages which equates to a saving of £36,087.68 (compared to an 8 pence text message).
Muiredge Primary School are taking advantage of the other great features the School App for Parents has to offer, including an iCal feed to seamlessly sync their app dates from their school calendar. They also have their Twitter account feeding directly into their News section. By having their news and dates managed from one place, they are significantly reducing admin time.
