School’s Almost Out for the Summer. Are you sorted?
It’s those last few manic weeks of term in schools. Teachers are celebrating reports being out and eagerly anticipating the break…whilst parents are struggling to juggle all the necessary end of year dates and appointments, and stressing looking for original ‘Thank you teacher’ gifts. Pupils…well there’s only one thing on their mind – SIX weeks off! Tears of joy and sadness all round!
But if you’re a Headteacher, or School Business Manager, the Summer break is a fantastic opportunity to make sure everything is in place, ready for September. This isn’t just confined to facilities, timetables, budgets and staffing – but needs to also include ensuring that you have effective tools in place to actively engage with parents and improve communication in the school. This is where Contact Group fits in.
Our portfolio of communications solutions and apps allow you to communicate and interact with parents quickly, regularly and effectively. Whether it’s our Mass Messaging and On-line Payments product Call Parents, or OurSchoolsApp – a personalised App for your school, or Truancy Call for managing lateness and absenteeism – they guarantee to save you time and money by streamlining the communication and transaction process on-line. Or why not find out more about our partner product Reggie, which allows teachers to take the student register anytime and anywhere. All our products integrate seamlessly with schools’ Management Information Systems.
Why not get organised and have your communications systems in place now, to be running smoothly, ready for the new academic year in September? This will give you plenty of time to train staff to use any new products, particularly as the start of the school year is always an extremely busy time, with the intake of new pupils and the administrative work that is involved.
Call the team now on 03333 13 14 15 and we’d be delighted to give you a free on-line demonstration of any of our products and how they could benefit your school.
