SCHOOL COMMUNICATIONS

If children’s achievements are recognised and supported by their family and friends they feel worthwhile, and if they feel worthwhile they are much more likely to have a better chance at success. Findings from the study done by ’Must Try Harder’ using data from the National Child Development Study suggested that policies aimed at improving parental effort could be effective in increasing children’s educational attainment” and that “..parents’ attitudes were most important, making more of a difference to the children than schools themselves.”

  • Share your School’s Vision: Involve the whole community in sharing the school’s vision, encouraging everyone to participate and work together to achieve it.
  • Take your projects to the whole school community: Communicating virtually ensures the community has access to information and the opportunity to respond and engage.
  • Showcase activities & achievements: Involve the community, let them take pride in their school’s achievements.
  • Maintain active engagement with parents and teachers: Reach isolated and minority individuals and groups. Inclusion is key to bridging gaps in order to dispel myths and misunderstandings.
  • Spread the Net Wide: Raise your school’s profile amongst parents, prospective parents, and the wider community
  • Increase stakeholder engagement: Gather the community into your project by making sure your message is heard by as many people as possible.

Declan’s daughter’s primary school, Donoughmore NS, approached Appiercom to see if we could help them address their school to parent communication issues. Working closely with the school team and board of management an app was developed and refined over a nine month period before being launched in February 2016.

Our challenge was to help the school team to communicate more effectively with each other and with parents, while significantly reducing administration costs. The school was able to use our technology to strengthen the partnership between the school and home.

The project was so successful, and the school so happy with it, that the Appierschool app was developed and adopted by more schools in the region.

Appierschool is now the leader in school communication software, helping schools to communicate more effectively with parents while saving money daily.

“Our new school app, by Appiercom, has been a fantastic addition to how we communicate with parents.”

Principal
Micheál Rea
Little Island NS,Little Island,Co. Cork

Our new school app, by Appiercom, has been a fantastic addition to how we communicate with parents. Even though we have a website and we use a texting service, our new app provides another dimension. We send out pictures and brief messages regularly to let parents know what is going on in each class. Children rarely tell their parents what is really going on in school. The posts to our app provide parents with a hook to start a conversation with their children and be involved in their education in a meaningful way. Posting to the app takes about 30 sec from when you take the photo to publishing. Appiercom’s response time to any issues is quick (same day and normally within an hour or two). Our teachers have found it a much easier way to share information than the website and it is cheaper than a newsletter. I am very happy with it and feedback from parents has been positive too.

“AppierSchool is a communication game changer for our school.”

Principal
Niamh Ambrose
Knockea N.S., Co Limerick

“Appierchool is a communication game changer for our school.   Everything parents need to know is contained within the app or linked to it, they love it.   Two taps and parents are up to date.  We are using much less paper.  It is making my job easier and saving the school money.  It has honestly exceeded our expectations!”

“We launched our school app with Appiercom in September and have found it to be a very successful tool for communicating with parents.”

Teacher
Nial Carty
Sacred Heart School Ballygall, Co. Dublin

“We launched our school app with Appiercom in September and have found it to be a very successful tool for communicating with parents. Children love seeing their photographs up on the app and parents love having regular updates and school news at the touch of a button and on hand all of the time. In particular, sharing nightly homework on the app has been very popular. As a teacher, I feel that we have provided a little bit more clarity for parents and a window for working parents to see into our school and classrooms. This has improved our relationships with the parents and the efficiency of communication has benefited the children, who are central to everything we do.”
