Despite disruption due to upgrade work iPAL has massively improved the admin side of our club. The only admin we need to do now are emails, voucher verifications and banking.

Reply from iPAL:Thank you Craig and thank you for the patience during the update - glad iPAL is working well for you! - Nathan
Craig found iPAL:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Registers are no longer manually done, debt recovery does itself through the system. This frees up a lot of time.
  • Slightly provides school data
    Our school use Scholapack for pupil data. Our out of hours use iPAL for clubs, bookings, payments and registers.
  • Moderately improves school processes
  • Significantly improves attainment

Parent

England

Used iPAL weekly for 7–12 months

Nov 2021

The app misses many options on certain phones, it's not compatible with all smartphones. Very difficult to get familiar with. The worst app I have ever used in my life.

Reply from iPAL:HI Edyta, Thank you for the feedback. I apologise for the app not being up to date on your phone - this is something we are working on as phone update quicker than we have our app. iPAL does work better on a tablet or laptop for booking and we encourage our customers to ensure parents are aware of this. Could you let me know which club your child goes and I will look into this further for you - my email address is nathan@completeeducationsolutions.uk - many thanks, Nathan

Used ipal for 8 months

Dec 2018

Some parents still face issues when booking or when the internet is misbehaving but the system is improving all the time. I can't begin to tell you how much time iPal has saved me since it was introduced to Woodlands in April.

Dani found ipal:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Less time spent on paperwork such as registers, invoices, dealing with additional bookings etc allowing staff to spend more time concentrating on the children and their attainment.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Again, less time spent on invoices and registers. Has also put a stop to the endless needs of the parents as they are responsible for their own child's bookings - the number of emails/messages from parents has dropped considerably. Also no longer having to waste time chasing up payments.
  • Significantly provides school data
    All parents must register with their name, address, contact information etc before registering their child/ren. Data including age and medical information etc must be included when each child is registered. All attendance records are easily accessible through the system should they be required.
  • Moderately improves school processes
    Collecting the children from class for club registration is much better with iPal. If a child isn't on the register they remain in the care of the school until they are booked in.

The iPal system works well but will constantly need to be checked and updated to prevent any bugs or glitches from effecting its day-to-day running.

Tom found ipal:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Easier to track when they have been in, and monitor behavioural patterns
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    All key data can be inputted in to iPal, ensuring it is can be in the same place
  • Moderately provides school data
    Data can be easily and quickly found and provided
  • Moderately improves school processes
    Financially, for trips and lunch costs, it can provide trip costs to children/families and collect-in the costs without the risk of money being lost in transit to school.

iPal takes the everyday stress of registers, accounts and bookings away. It enables me to spend quality time with parents and children, planning adult-led activities and being able to observe child-led activities and plan how I can progress each child further. I am able to get to know each child, using what I know to support their learning. The parents at our school enjoy using iPal as they find it easy to use, book on and pay for sessions. It is reliable, easy to use and informative. There’s always help if needed with the fantastic customer service.

Lisa-adele Gabriel found ipal:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    We have been able to spend more time with children and helping each child reach their full potential. Spending our time maintaining and building on making positive relationships.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    We no longer need to spend time doing accounts and registers, and we can use the time more wisely with children.
  • Moderately provides school data
  • Slightly improves school processes
