We aim to keep parents up to date with everything involving their child's development at a time that is accessible by everyone.
The system we currently use at Eldon Grove Academy is called Schoolping. This system allows notifications, messages and reminders of events and activities to be sent directly to your mobile phone or any other IT device to share news, information and updates etc. It will also send links to various documents such as newsletters, event photographs, general letters of information, trip letters etc. This is how we will be communicating and engaging with parents and once information is sent, you will have all the information to hand and this in turn, unlike paper copies which can be mislaid or lost, will alleviate the need to contact school to check details as information is stored and retained on your device. Events can be added to your phone or other IT device’s calendar so you will never forget an event or the time and details of this. If any parent/carer does not have access to a mobile phone, tablet, laptop or computer, there will be a few paper copies of correspondence available in the reception for collection. However, we don’t anticipate this to be many in this technological age.
In order to log onto the Schoolping platform, all we require is a valid email address. Please contact school with your email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will then start the process for you. You will be required to sign into this facility to be able to access the information etc.
