ParentComms:Mobile

Free mobile app to connect parents with schools

Service Pack: Optional Service

Subject: Tools

The ParentComms:Mobile app is designed to be used by both parents and staff. When used by parents, the app allows them to stay connected with their children's schools by automatically receiving notifications. For staff, the app is integrated with other TRUSTnet services allowing them to access a range of functions from their mobile device.

OpenCheck integration

ParentComms:Mobile allows parents to automatically receive status notifications from all their children's schools via OpenCheck (so long as the school is using the OpenCheck service). This is particularly useful during times of severe weather conditions. It will eliminate the need to search for information on websites which may be overloaded with traffic or may not have been updated in time.

ParentComms:Pay+ integration

In schools where the ParentComms:Pay+ online payment system is used, parents using the app will receive automatic notifications regarding items such as dinner money accounts and school trips. Further integration with the payment service is coming to the app in the near future. For these messages to be received, parents must log into the app with the account used to access the payment service.

AutoText integration

Schools using a range of other TRUSTnet services, such as texting and parent reporting, will also be able to send notifications and reminders to parents via the app. Parents using the app will be able to receive information and help schools using TRUSTnet's services save money on their communications.

Functions for staff

This app serves a dual purpose as it also provides functionality to staff in USO-subscribing schools. Staff can use the app to update their school's status in OpenCheck, send messages to parents or staff, receive information regarding the school's network status or monitor the school's security via CCTV with real-time images.

Downloading the app

This app is available for Android and iPhone although not all features are available on all phones.
