For Copthill’s busy parents, ParentMail is the obvious choice
ParentMail’s new mobile Apps have gone down a storm with parents at Copthill Independent Day School, and as a result the school is seeing a far better response from parents than before.
With 100% of parents using ParentMail, Copthill are extremely proud of the way they communicate to parents, and with the free iOS and Android Apps it’s even easier for busy working parents to pick up school messages, complete forms and more.
One parent, Sharon Joyce, told us, “I downloaded the ParentMail App the day it came out, and have found I’m picking up school messages as soon as they’re sent. For me and my husband, who are both very busy during the day, we’re alerted wherever we are and whatever we’re doing, so we’re always aware of what’s going on and can respond straight away if we need to.”
The App has come at a perfect time for Copthill school, as they have recently started using the Forms, Permissions and Survey App. School Administrator Linda Flynn said, “We trialled the Forms, Permissions and Surveys module and we have had nothing but great feedback from the parents. We held a coffee morning recently and they were extremely positive, telling us completing forms has never been so easy.”
Going forward, Copthill is excited about using the Forms App even more, to gather permissions and surveys from parents, as well as booking school events and outings.
Linda told us, “Many of our parents are in full time work, so the use of ParentMail means we can reach them whenever we need to – far better than the days of sending home paper which would be left in bags for weeks. There’s no doubt it’s improved the amount of responses we now get back from parents”
With all parents registered to ParentMail, Copthill no longer send any paper communications out, and have certainly noticed a cost saving from doing so.
The school have found that the biggest benefit to ParentMail for them has been the ease of communicating to and hearing back from their busy parents – “We’re communicating more regularly, responses come back quicker, and both parents and staff are happy. We are extremely pleased with ParentMail and what it has done for the school.”
