Government Cuts

AppsforSchools have very close ties with several senior leadership managers as well as teachers.
We are acutely aware of the massive government cuts being required of schools. It may be part of the government's drive towards grammar schools and acadmies, we don't know, although it appears academies do seem to have more finance. Nonetheless all schools are looking to save money.
Here are a number of ways an app can save you money.

When you shouldn't get an app for your school?

App technology has been around for school use for around 4 and a half years. Although the functions have improved massively, most schools are under-using the technology.

So here is a quick overview of MIS provider plotted against the number of students, it does give an interesting spread and helps to quickly identify if a provider sits in the primary or secondary school camp (or both)

So you think an app just replicates a website? - Wrong!
