Parental communication in the lockdown boosted by Schoop

We’re guessing everyone’s settling into a routine by now, and if it doesn’t involve spending a lot of time in pyjamas, then you’re doing better than we are! With schools closed, or open only to keyworkers’ children, everyone is having to adapt to a situation we couldn’t have expected just a few short months ago. Schools have had to find a new way of conducting communication with parents, without even the basic tools of cheery waves at drop-offs or chats about progress at a busy parent’s evening.

Keep everyone in the loop 

We have had some lovely messages from teachers about how Schoop is helping them communicate with parents of children in isolation. From keeping parents up-to-date with the latest government and health authority advice, to pointing them in the right direction for homework and study guides, Schoop is proving invaluable. Our easy-to-use, flexible app makes parental communication a doddle: simple, efficient – available in over 40 languages and dialects.

Heartfelt messages shared on Schoop

One headteacher used Schoop to take the opportunity to share this heartfelt message to the whole school. He gave us permission to use it here as we couldn’t have said it better ourselves!

“Good afternoon pupils, well, we’ve reached the middle of week 1 of the Easter holidays and I hope you’re enjoying the warm weather in your gardens. The staff and myself are missing you all and we can’t wait to see you all again back in school. I hope that you’ve been able to do some work at home and it’s been lovely to see these on the schools FB and twitter account. Important message – do the small things and don’t worry too much about anything. You’re all safe. Together hand in hand, Mr Evans, Ysgol gwaun Cae Gurwen.”
