Park Primary School

Park Primary School in Lancashire have been using the School App for Parents for a year and have embraced the app brilliantly. Rachel, who manages the app has found it to be an integral addition for them, especially over the past year.

“The app has made a huge difference to parent communication and engagement – it is so easy to share information with parents and our community”

Their app is managed brilliantly and they currently have 350 downloads, with a pupil roll of 382, 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 27,300 messages which equates to a saving of £2,184.00 (compared to an 8 pence text message).

Park Primary School are taking advantage of the other great features the School App for Parents has to offer, including having their Twitter account feeding directly into their News section. By having their news managed from one place, they are significantly reducing admin time. They also use the 1-2-1 messaging service too – which offers individual messaging to parents.
