Latest Feature Releases in OurSchoolsApp – March 18

Our flagship product OurSchoolsApp (OSA) which is increasing parental engagement in over a thousand schools in UK, now includes a number of newly-released features including:

  • – RSS Feed
  • – Document Upload


RSS Feed:

OSA can now pull any external RSS news feed into the app (e.g. the news feed or blog on your school’s website, or mainstream media channel such as BBC Education). This will reduce the amount of work that the app administrator would need to do, to get news articles out to parents.  If a school wants to link to their own website, they will only need to publish content once, and OSA will pick up the text and send it out to parents without them needing to do anything.

Document Upload:

OSA now features a documents tile which is a one-stop repository for all school documents, so parents have ONE place of reference.  Ideal for hosting documents such as letters home, newsletters, school policies, meeting minutes, Ofsted Reports, menus, questionnaires, events flyers, homework, revision sheets, exam timetables, fee information, class photos and more.  The scope is endless!

The new features will not only save school administration staff considerable time in writing duplicate news items, but schools can enjoy reduced printing costs for letters, and less less stress coordinating the physical distribution of letters to pupils (which all too often are lost anyway!)
