- Kate Richards, Chief Inspector of the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) 2018
Both the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) and Ofsted, recognise the importance of effective school-home engagement and its impact on pupil attainment across the education spectrum. Effective school-communication is one of the simplest ways school leaders can address parental satisfaction and improve long-term school performance objectives.
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.
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 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!
We know that Schools can save money by switching to EdUnity - which is why if you don't save on the cost of switching to EdUnity we will match the cost difference in your subscription renewal.
Successful parental communication and school-home engagement has been linked to a number of areas, but the key benefits for schools can be summarised as:
1. Attributed to higher student grades and pupil attainment levels (American Psychology Association, 2014)
2. Attributed to increasing the likelihood of post-secondary education (Grand Rapids Public School District, 2018)
3. Attributed to developing student confidence in the classroom (Journal of Education and Practice, Volume 7, 2016)
3. Attributed to stimulating good classroom behaviour (Journal of Education and Practice, Volume 7, 2016)
Evidencing parental engagement is one of those school headaches. Both Ofsted and ISI state the importance of school-home engagement, but there is no clear way to evidence progression. Well, until EdUnity. We use built-in Analytics to provide you a detailed overview of how parents and students are using your School's App. It is a great way of providing supporting evidence to school inspectors and monitoring your school's progress over time.
Using our Analytics data, and expertise in Apps and home engagement, our team is always ready to lend a hand. We can help your school draft winning strategies that deliver improved and sustained levels of engagement, without taking up additional time or resources. Simply speak to us in the App Manager and we can put together simple steps and strategies, then review these with you to find what works best for your school community.
