The SchoolsBuddy app and partnering web solution benefits school leaders, teachers, parents and pupils by streamlining the way each school organises activities and communicates. Anything from sports events to activities, school trips and clubs can be organised using the app, thanks to functions that request the availability of staff and students and collect fees from parents.
Built first as an app, SchoolsBuddy is completely mobile; everything the SchoolsBuddy web system can do, the app can do too. The team behind this varied resource will be offering live demonstrations at BETT Stand G310.
SchoolsBuddy has three main areas in which it can help schools:
Organising - everything from sports fixtures to music lessons, school trips and after-school clubs. Features include team selection, fee collection, location maps, traffic delay information and everything else in between.
Safeguarding - mobile registers enable teachers to know where pupils should be and instantly alerts key staff if someone is absent within seconds. Particularly useful for extracurricular activities/after school clubs. ICE (in case of emergency) info and medical data can be recalled for each pupil quickly and easily.
Communication and Engagement - keeping staff, parents and pupils in touch by communicating right into their pockets. The message centre and individual pupil dashboards provides centralised storage of all communication, from event cancellations and group reminders, to school wide assemblies and match reports. Push notifications ensure no communications are missed.
Headteachers, directors of sport, school marketing managers and teachers across the world have already welcomed SchoolsBuddy because of the huge number of thoughtful and helpful features it offers, as well as the intuitive way it addresses so many of the problems found in schools today.
