Skene Square School
Skene Square School in Aberdeen City have been using the School App for Parents for just over 2 and a half years and have found the app to be an integral addition for them, especially over the past year.
“Parents and staff love the app – the free messaging is invaluable.”
Their app is managed brilliantly and they have an outstanding 1273 downloads, with a pupil roll of 315, 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 310,612 messages which equates to a saving of £24,848.96 (compared to an 8 pence text message).
Skene Square School are taking advantage of some of the other features and services Connectus offer by having their website news and Twitter account feeding directly into their News section and their daily lunch menu added to their dates section, significantly reducing admin time.
