Improving School Communications with ParentMail
Communicating with parents is an important part of what we do, making sure you get the correct information about school news, activities and things that really matter is something we care about.
We use ParentMail a service used by over 6,000 schools, nurseries and children’s clubs to communicate to parents. ParentMail will be beneficial to you because you can:
- Use a free mobile app on Android and iOS to pick up school messages instantly.
- Have an account simply for school messages (away from your busy email inbox!)
- Connect to other schools, nurseries or clubs that use ParentMail.
- Highlight important messages or archive old messages to make life easier.
- Messages can be sent directly to mums, dads and carers – even grandparents!
Registering with ParentMail is very easy! You will shortly receive either an email and/or text message from ParentMail; when you receive this please just follow the instructions in the message.
Please be assured that ParentMail is registered with the Information Commissioner and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
If you need any additional information or assistance, please use the help site: www.parentmail.co.uk/help/parenthelp/ or please contact the school office on 01305 782600.
An easier way for you to make school payments
We use +Pay on ParentMail – an online payment service which allows you to pay for school items quickly and easily on your smartphone, tablet or computer.
We will inform you about items you need to pay through ParentMail, and you will be able to pay electronically, using credit or debit cards as well as PayPal and PayPoint.
If you have an Android or Apple smartphone, we would highly recommend you download the free ParentMail App so that you can make easy, online payments on the go. To do this, simply search for “ParentMail” in your App store.
If you do not wish to make payments online, you can of course, continue to make cash, cheque and voucher payments.
Please note, your bank statement will display either the school name or ParentMail, dependent on your payment method.
