School App update

We have been aware of difficulties some of our parents have been having in receiving notifications of app messages.  This is something we have fed back to our service provider who have advised updates have been made which will mean this technical difficulty should now be resolved.  They have advised us to make you aware that you will need to delete and reinstall the school news app.  With a busy few weeks approaching we will be sending updates and reminders through the school news app so please let know if you feel you are not receiving messages from us.

How the App Works

Firstly, you will need to download the app from either the iTunes App StoreGoogle Play or Windows Store by clicking on the relevant buttons below or by loading up the app store on your phone and searching for ‘School News’.

Once you have located and downloaded the free app, launch the app and you will then be able to either click on the ‘Find my school’ button which uses the phones GPS to locate all the schools in the surrounding 20 miles, or you can type in the schools postcode and click on ‘Get my school’ button.

Your school's postcode is: RG5 3NA

You will then see a list of schools that use the app. Click on the school you wish to view news & events for.

You will then be able to click on the ‘News’ button to view all of the latest news items that have been added to the school(s) you have selected and also all of the upcoming calendar events by clicking on the ‘Events’ button.

Clicking on ‘My Schools’ will display a list of schools that you view news and events for. Clicking on one of the schools will the display the school address, telephone number and email address which you can click on to either phone or email the school directly from the app.
