Neilston & Madras Learning Campus
Neilston & Madras Learning Campus in East Renfewshire have been using the School App for Parents for just almost 4 and a half years. Headteacher, Gerard Curley has found the app to be an integral addition for them, especially over the past year.
“I don’t really think there is any question about the continuation of our App – parents find it so useful when we need to share information with them and it is so easy to use for staff too”
Their app is managed brilliantly and they have an outstanding 1665 downloads, with a pupil roll of 282, 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 1,303,695 messages which equates to a saving of £104,295.60 (compared to an 8 pence text message).
Neilston & Madras Learning Campus are taking advantage of the other great features ConnectUs has to offer, including having their Twitter account and 12 blogs feeding directly into their News section – by having their news managed from one place, they are significantly reducing admin time. They also have their daily lunch menu choices added to their app calendar.
