3 ways we’re making it easier for you to engage with parents...

Close your eyes and imagine a world where you could reduce the sheer volume of admin that you have to do when engaging with your parent community. If you’ve fallen asleep, exhausted from all of the admin - I understand. ScholarPack understands too, which is why they’ve worked in partnership with 30 primary schools to develop the ScholarPack Parents app - designed to not only reduce your workload but also save money and help you work better with parents. Here’s how…

1. Accurate details - minus the admin

First off, the ScholarPack Parents app allows parents and guardians to update their details, you guessed it, via the app. Parents can request to change their contact details, as well as their child’s medical information and dietary requirements at any time. In other words - you don’t have to waste any more time sending out paper slips, collecting them back in and entering all of the information into the system*shudders* manually…  

2. Save time and money on communication

And while you’re chucking those paper slips in the recycling, throw any letters home to parents in there too. The ScholarPackParents app provides unlimited two-way messaging, saving you time, money, and the environment. This is also a far cheaper alternative to costly SMS. Schools are using this tool to communicate with parents about everything - from wraparound provision to pupil attendance, which takes me to my final point ...

3.  Work with parents to manage child attendance

The ScholarPack Parents app allows you to flag lateness or absences with parents instantly. Not only this, but the app also provides two-way messaging so parents can reply to messages and give you the answers you need, quickly.  

What’s more, parents can get a greater understanding of their child’s attendance levels, and how factors like how lateness and absence impact overall attendance, using the app’s real-time dashboard. And for you, the app integrates with ScholarPack MIS, meaning you can view this data alongside contextual information like pre-existing medical conditions, key worker status and other all-important insights.

Wow. Just think what you could do with all of that extra time on your hands. You could try and uncover Banksy’s real identity, solve the mystery of Stonehenge, get into quantum physics… or maybe just take a well-earned nap. The world is your oyster!
