Alert replies

When a parent receives a push notification, they can respond to the message at no cost to the school or the parent.

This is not a whatsapp type thread but it does mean that a parent can ask for an explanation or respond to an individual message for example if their child's bag has been handed in at reception the parent can say they will pick up the object at 4:30.

This function can be turned off for schools who do not want parents to respond.
