Parentapps Introduction

8th July 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

Parentapps Connect at Cathcart Street

We are pleased to inform you that we are launching a new school communication system called Parentapps Connect, which will greatly improve the way we communicate with you.

The introduction of the app will support our efforts to reduce waste and our environmental footprint, as well as saving significant staff time, paper and printing costs.  The financial savings will enable us to focus spending to support teaching and learning for our pupils.

Parentapps Connect is secure and GDPR compliant, and will provide you with instant access to term dates, events, newsletters, lunch menus, social media and much more.  It will also link directly to latest news and important information on our website.

In addition, you will also be able to view and submit consent forms, receive secure documents and report absences directly from the app.  It also enable you to invite additional family members to download the app, ensuring that the right people have access to important information regarding your child.

We will use the app to send out direct and group messages to parents/carers when necessary.  The messages will be sent out via push notifications and will be sent directly to your smart device for you to read at any time.

An invitation from Parentapps Connect will be sent to your child’s priority 1 contact (usually main parent/carer) via SMS text message on Monday 13th July with further instructions on downloading and accessing the app.  Please see instructions within the Parentapps Connect menu of our website for further guidance.

In order to allow other users to access the app, you will need to submit the form which can be found in the ‘Add More Users’ section of the main menu.  This will be submitted to school for verification and an invitation will be sent out to them within 48 hours.

Please email schooloffice@cathcartstreet.wirral.sch.uk if you would like to update your contact information or are having any difficulties logging into the app.

Kind regards,

Mrs D. Richards

Headteacher
