Mobile School Websites software, puts your school website, on a mobile phone.

School closure for snow? Let parents have the latest details on their mobiles. No costly text message fees.
PTA want to contact parents without using paper newsletters. Give them a page on the mobile website.
Want to conduct surveys of parents attitudes? Do so immediately via mobile phones. No extra cost. All included.

Students can access the school's website using their mobile phones. This gives them greater engagement with the school.
The PTA can use pages on the mobile school website to keep parents updated on what is happening and encourage them to join them in assisting the school.
Most parents have an internet enabled phone and therefore have easy access.
Pages on the website can be used to develop any curriculum area. Provide course details for student options, or for prospective 6th form students who may be interested in joining your school.
Cuts down on the use of paper newsletters to parents, PTA, governors etc.
Heads of Year and other staff can use pages on the mobile website to publicise events and give feedback on what has happened.
The school calendar can appear on the mobile website making it less likely that students will miss important exams.
A mobile school website cuts down on calls to the office for information. You can run your school office using fewer staff hours, and make considerable cost savings. The software at £29.99 is a negligible cost compared to the savings that can be made.
Putting maps on the mobile school website makes it easier for prospective parents to find the school. This increases the chances of recruiting new students moving into the area.
Details of your school can be seen on mobile phones worldwide.
Keep parents fully up to date on what is happening, wherever they are. Your school is as close as their mobile phone.
Lets parents contact the school easily and quickly, wherever they may be.
Students love using the internet on their phones. Will also work on iPads. Fantastic for maintaining great communication.
Give students weekly tips on how they can do better.
This software does not rely on "Apps" and this is what we found attractive. It works straight away on any mobile phone that can access the internet. You don't have to tell parents to download a specific app for their phone. They don't have to pay for Apps from Apple or Android. They just save the web address as a favourite and get an MSW logo to click on. We tell parents that MSW stands for "My School Website".
For the cost, the software is amazing. We could not believe that for £29.99 (it was on offer) that we could have a mobile website for our school. We were wondering if there was a catch. But no, that is the total cost. No ongoing maintenance agreements that rip you off.
Setting up the software was very easy. We got the download as soon as we paid online, and our ICT Technician set it up in about 15 minutes. Our office manager then started to create the webpages. She was nervous as she is not an IT guru. On the Mobile School Website training page www.mobileschoolwebsites.com there are some training videos. We just pointed her at the videos page and left her to it. Within 30 minutes we had a live, working mobile website. I was amazed at how easy it was.
We are now letting parents know about the new site through our newsletter. We are putting a QR code on our main website so that they can photograph it and get straight to the mobile website.
I feel confident that if we have snow and the school has to close, that more parents can be kept up to date without having to phone us and create a logjam at our switchboard.
We have not really fully explored all of the uses of the software yet. One of our Heads of Year wants to experiment with a page to keep her year group interested in year news.
We are thinking of having a survey on the mobile site that parents can complete on their phones whilst they are waiting for parents evening appointments in the school hall.
The beauty of the system too is that as well as making page updates in the office, you can update the mobile website from a phone too, so long as you have the password. (And you don't need a degree in HTML!)
Mobile School Websites have done a good job. I cannot comment on their technical support because so far we have not had to contact them. Everything has just worked. Anyway, for £29.99 I was not that concerned. Plus they offered a 100% money back guarantee so we thought there was nothing much to lose.
My advice is to give it a go. You don't need to invest in complex training for your staff.
When we bought the software they had a QR code on their website. You can use this and you get a demo mobile site on your own phone straight away so you can try it out. This convinced us to give it a try and we bought the software shortly afterwards.
We are getting lots of hits on this new mobile site. Not sure what proportion is students checking it out, and what proportion is parents. Increasing our profile with users has got to be good PR.
Highly recommended. 5 stars.
