A quick look at the DfE open academies document tells you that academies have been around longer than the iPhone, YouTube and Facebook all of which have transformed the way in which we communicate with each other.
Yet despite this, having spent time with over 100 MATs and even more academies, one of the biggest challenges I still see is ensuring effective communication channels are maintained across several sites and many different key stakeholders.
We designed SchoolCal to redefine communications across the whole sector and to fit in with your MAT structure, vision and ethos however that looks. Supporting you to reach out across every school and at every level to maximise engagement with governors, employees and parents with the sole goal to better the outcomes of our children.
Create, Schedule and Share
That’s our philosophy; whether it is a policy you want to share across all leadership teams, a good news story to every parent or message to all delegates of your annual conferences it is that simple.
Create your post adding images, links, key dates and documents then schedule the exact time to share with individuals, groups or categories of people in the MAT or Individual Academy.
Our create, schedule and share approach to communication delivers a personalised newsfeed to every user. Posts shared from the central MAT and individual schools can be viewed as one single or separate newsfeed.
This provides every user with an experience personal to their needs, keeping them actively engaged with your operational and strategic goals.
Accessible to everyone
Mobile technology has changed the way we communicate in many of our everyday experiences, education shouldn’t be different. Using our web and mobile and applications you can reach out to employees, parents and governors at a time and on a platform to suit everyone delivering your message to the right person at the right time.
SchoolCal can be used as a collaboration, communication and engagement platform for specific groups or across every stakeholder within your MAT under one simple licence, no bundles, modules or extras.
