School SMS to Parents

EDU365 NOTIFY is a SMS and email notification service for schools. The standard functionality includes the ability to send SMS and custom emails directly to parents, with ease and without complexity, ensuring that urgent information is read by those who need it.

School SMS for Parents

Schools are using texts to send parents quick alerts about their children, as well as general and urgent school updates directly to their mobile devices.

Parents often don’t check their personal emails at work, which can lead to them missing important updates about their children. Therefore, if parents could receive text messages on their phones, even when they have no data connection, they are far more likely to read them and be up-to-date.

SMS / text messages have a 99% open rate making text messaging the ideal mode of communication between your school and the parents of your pupils for urgent notifications like school closures for example.

With EDU365 NOTIFY, you can send and schedule as many SMS messages as you like within your available credit balance, credits will only be deducted from your available balance for successfully delivered messages.

Email Notifications

Whilst email notifications may have a far lesser open rate than text messages, they still serve their purpose within the school environment.

Text messages are only plain text whereas emails can carry attachments and images. This is perfect for a school if they have a monthly newsletter that they send for individual year groups, as this can be attached to an email and sent to just that year group.

Another use could be parent letters that get sent home in pupils’ bags but may never actually reach home. They can be attached to an email and sent directly to the parent/guardian as well as given to the pupil meaning there’s double the chance it’s actually seen.
