School App Installation Guide
Our school apps are our main method of communication with parent(s) / guardian(s).
Our school currently has two apps running to ensure that you as the parent/guardian are up to date on all activities concerning your child including classroom activities, sports, music or other after school events and also that you are kept up to date of changes to school day such as external trips, school closures etc.
Our school has launched Aladdin Connect, which is a brilliant way for you to stay connected with our school. We are pushing to reduce our use of paper while improving communications. With Aladdin Connect you can
- Receive push notifications about school events, school closures etc.
- Keep track of attendances and give reasons for absences
- Keep your contact details up to date
- Give consent (sign digital permission slips) for school activities
- View all school reports held by our school (we will not be issuing paper copies)
There are other benefits of Aladdin Connect which we are looking at developing over time. If you have not registered with Aladdin Connect, please contact the school to arrange it. This App will be our primary mode of communicating with our parents/guardians from now on!
The app has an News Section which is updated regularly with relevant school news.
The app also has a number of other categories which may be of interest:
- The Classes category is used by teachers to inform you of activities relevant to their specific classes.
- There also sections for the many of the sports undertaken both during and after school, other after school activities such as Coding Club, Art, Music and sections which provide updates on Flags and Awards.
- The Parents Association have a section to inform you of the work they undertake to support the school.
- The app also has a blog on Cyber Safety run by Ger Brick who is one of the leading facilitators of Anti-Cyberbullying and Internet Safety. He provides regular tips on how to teach your child to be safe online.
- In the Local Businesses section we have listed the businesses who support the school through sponsorship of the app. Anyone interested in advertising their business on the app can contact the app developers Appiercom directly at https://www.appiercom.com.
