We sometimes overlook the importance and impacts of successful communication across school-life. Despite this, the research and evidence is clear.

Studies show that persistent and effective school communication is linked to higher attendance levels (Epstein & Sheldon, 2002, p. 309), developing child self-confidence (Wairimu et al., 2016, p. 96) and increasing student attainment and the achievement of post-secondary education (Fan & Chen, 2001, p. 4).

Some FAQs About News Stream

A successful News Stream is the fundamental basis to any school engagement strategy. Keep parents informed, promote parental involvement and track engagement.

How Many Times Should We Post?

We typically suggest that a school should look to share a post 2-3 times a week, and promote 1 post with a notification. This ensures a fresh supply of content and will incentivise parents to check back and engage regularly. Analytics can be a helpful way of monitoring the sweet spot for your school, and our Solutions Advisors will be happy to assist with this.

What Kind of Content Can I add to a Post?

You can add a wide range of content from text to media including images and videos.

Why is Parental Engagement Important?

Studies show that persistent and effective school communication is linked to higher attendance levels (Epstein & Sheldon, 2002, p. 309), developing child self-confidence (Wairimu et al., 2016, p. 96) and increasing student attainment and the achievement of post-secondary education (Fan & Chen, 2001, p. 4).
