We are pleased to be able to inform you that the school are now using the My Ed app to further improve our communication with you. The My Ed app is free and available for most android and apple devices, but unfortunately not for Windows devices at this time. Our usual text messaging and emails will continue to be sent to parents/carers who do not have the app, but unfortunately you will not be able to view your child’s details online.
You will then need to add your details – if you are the contact that usually receives school emails/texts make sure the mobile number that currently receives texts from the school is entered here. If your number is incorrect on our system you will need to contact us to update this before you can use the app to access your child’s details. You will then receive a security code on the mobile number entered above and once input the app will become available. It may take a day or two for the ‘My Students’ details to appear.
There are three main parts to the app:
Allows you to view information and keep up to date with what’s going on in school showing key information and with a direct link to our website and school services such as ParentPay.
The new app allows the sending and receiving of FREE messages to the absence team via your mobile device. Other messages from school will also be sent to the app, so it is important that you check for messages. If you need an urgent response, please continue to phone the school.
Allows you to view information about your child’s attendance. This information is updated daily overnight. This part of the app will be available to the parent/carer who currently receives school texts. Reports will continue to be sent home via email but the messaging part of the app will be used to notify you when these have been sent out
The app will have full functionality when we return after the Easter break on April 23rd but is available for parents and carers to download and register their details now.
Feedback is always welcome. Please send this via the school email firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘My Ed’ in the subject box.
