What is Schoolcomms?

Schoolcomms is an all-in-one parent engagement app with integrated messaging, payments, club management, school dinners, parents evening booking.

Parent communication feature provides free app messaging cutting down on texting and printing costs. Parents can submit absence explanations. Staff can access a web based management dashboard from anywhere. Set up templates for regular use (e.g. awards or newsletters). Send digital reports from SIMS and choose which achievement notifications parents receive through the app.

Cashless payments feature allows parents to pay for dinners, clubs, trips, uniform and more. Items appear in the app, then they can pay using card, Bank Transfer or PayPoint. Pupils will no longer have to carry cash in to school so there’s no chance of trip money going missing. Parents receive reminders when their balance gets low, and staff can monitor payments and access financial reports. Schoolcomms integrates with all leading cashless catering systems.

Club Management feature keeps parents informed of schedule changes within the app. Being able to manage attendance and registers helps guarantee child protection during after-school hours. Parents can book their preferred sessions within the app. Set place limits to control numbers and generate digital or printed registers.

Parents evening system integrates with your school management information system and connects with School Gateway to provide parents with easy access to booking through the Schoolcomms app. Cuts down on admin time and reduces chance of missed appointments. The Video Appointments module enables remote meetings with parents.
