With your very own school app, you can send unlimited alerts, also known as push notifications. School alerts can be sent to the whole school, different year groups or even individual parents and students. They become extremely handy when you want to notify your community about school closures, remind students about homework or even to award prizes for hard work!
What if a parent does not have a smartphone, how will they read the alert?
Luckily, the Apps for Schools' control panel includes the facility to simultaneously email your alert as well as sending it via a push notification.
