Personalised App for Parents
OurSchoolsApp (OSA) is a free app for your parents, which keeps them updated with information, news, calendar events and contact information.
OSA allows your parents to get timely updates from their child’s school – direct to their phone. When the average user picks up their smart phone 221 times a day*, and 76% of UK adults have a smartphone**, communicating with parents on their phone is by far the most effective. Anything else is old school!
