Places you may have seen EdUnity before
Pupils, parents, educators and school-leaders have an important role to play in your school. EdUnity helps schools address a wide range of challenges to create a thriving school community.
Parents have no visibility on what happens in school.
Between spam filters and social media, information gets missed.
Traditional systems do not meet ongoing communication needs.
Work is duplicated with multiple platforms and steps.
Money is wasted due to inefficient or outdated platforms.
Off-the-shelf products do not meet school-specific requirements.
Parent communication is vital to any primary school. Whether you are reminding parents about the need for sports kits tomorrow, or an upcoming school event - your School App has you covered. Your School App offers free, fast and reliable messaging for any situation.
Time is precious, and you certainly do not want to be sending messages multiple times, repeatedly chasing up parents or checking calendar events are synced. EdUnity, takes the headache out of routine admin. Easily sync events, reach parents in one place and take advantage of powerful scheduling tools.
See how Jamie's mum uses her School's App every morning.
In the morning, I wake up to the sound of my alarm, a loud jingle that leaves me slightly latent until I have stumbled downstairs for my morning coffee. As the kettle boils, I reach for my phone, scrolling through the notifications, looking for any messages my son's school sent.
I always like to get a sense of what's going on in school, Jamie is only 10 years old, so when I ask "how was school today?" I usually get a "fine". So checking the school news in the morning, is my way of getting a better idea. A quick check of the calendar, and I know that when we leave the house at 7.30am, Jamie will be ready for the day ahead.
At EdUnity we build every school app individually. This means no generic parent apps or school gateway apps. Each app is built specifically for the school in consultation with one of our Solutions Advisors to offer unrivalled functionality, performance and security.
Works on iOS, Android and HTML5 Devices.
Keeping your school community safe at all times.
0.05 seconds to receive a Notification sent via EdUnity.
No on-site infrastructure, updated in seconds.
We have big plans for EdUnity and launch new features every month.
Wouldn't it be great to find a replacement for the bookbag?
Your School's App can be more than a parent app or a messaging tool. With EdUnity, you can add third-party tools and services to make your app even more unique.

Yes! With every App Subscription, we include free and unlimited communications. This means you can send as many Notifications, Inbox Messages and Instant Messages as you need.
We offer dedicated support with all subscription plans, this includes Live Chat assistance within the School App manager as well as email and telephone support. There is also built-in On-Screen Guidance and our team has the ability to Screen Share remotely within our platform to quickly help resolve any queries.
When we say School App, every app is unique - it is your School's very own app, and this means there is an endless number of ways to customise it and tailor it to your School. Other providers offer things like a 'Parent App' that can be downloaded and used in limited ways - but beware! This is not a School App. If you have a question about this or specific questions, we would encourage you to speak to a Solutions Advisor who can help.
We release new features and improvements every month. Once more, it's our schools who decide what we release. Clients can vote on new functionality and features, so over time, your app will keep getting smarter and better!
That's up to you! It can be within just a couple of weeks by the time all changes and iterations are finished. We advise schools to get in early, busy periods around April and the Summer Holidays can mean higher demand and may slightly increase waiting times.
We offer a range of subscription plans dependent on your school size. These start at £80 per month up to £250 per month for large schools. We do not charge any set-up fees or usage quotas. For more advanced configurations, such as for a University or Multi-Academy Trust we advise speaking to one of our Solutions Advisors who will be able to assist further.
Yes, we are pleased to offer solutions geared more towards Group set-ups. A minimum of 3 schools is required to access this but we are happy and able to work with School Groups.
We accept payments via BACS, Bank Transfer or Debit Card. EdUnity does not accept payments by Cash or Cheque. All subscriptions are billed annually.
No, EdUnity does not offer a free trial. As every app is built specifically to your school it simply isn't possible to. We can however go through demonstrations and explore requirements in detail before there is any commitment.
EdUnity is fully compliant with GDPR and all other regulatory requirements. EdUnity is also registered with Dun & Bradstreet and holds A D-U-N-S® number.

Every school app is made up of individual features, for example, an in-app mailbox or a calendar page. These features, when added together create the overall app for your School. We have many features available both created by EdUnity, as well as a wide range of third-parties in our Marketplace.
The marketplace is EdUnity's App Store. It is a place you can go to discover more features, apps and services that plugin and connect with your School App. Thanks to Marketplace, your app can get smarter over time, so as we add more third-parties and apps, you will have even more services that you can connect.
Yes! Clients will often tell us about specific situations and see if we can help. It could be something like adding School Bus Tracking or integrating with a specific platform. If you have a need outside of our core features, it's certainly worth asking! Custom developments are quoted separately to subscriptions - we can also help guide you to our trusted partners who may offer the functionality you're seeking.
