Text messaging service
With effect from 10th July 2018 our text messaging service is now via ParentMail, which will include a free, secure mobile app for you to pick up school communications on the go. This service will be beneficial to you because you can:
Use a free, secure mobile app on Android and iOS to pick up school messages instantly.
Connect to other schools, nurseries or clubs that use ParentMail.
Highlight important messages or archive old messages to make life easier.
Messages can be sent directly to mums, dads and carers – even grandparents!
Update your contact details within the secure mobile app.
Registering with ParentMail is very easy. Over the next few days you will be sent a text message from ParentMail, when you receive this please just follow the instructions in the message. Once registered, if you have an Android or Apple smartphone you can then download the ParentMail App for the best user experience. To do this, simply search for “ParentMail” in your App store.
Please be assured that ParentMail is registered with the Information Commissioner and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
If you need any additional information or assistance, please visit the help site: www.parentmail.co.uk/help/parenthelp/ or if you have not received any contact from ParentMail within 7days please contact Miss Corbett or Miss McLuckie in the school office.
Sending messages via text incurs a 4p per message charge for our school so as you can imagine this proves quite a costly exercise for us. As messages received through the app will not incur any charges for the school can we please ask that you download this and complete the registration process as soon as possible?
