It ensures the school administrators can complete their everyday tasks quickly and efficiently, as well as enabling them to do many things that were simply not possible before. All communications between a school and parents are instant, secure, convenient and completely personalised.
A wide range of easy to use features at your fingertips!
Good communication is what Schnappy is all about! The powerful messaging functionality is the perfect way for a school and the parents to communicate with one another. The school has the ability to send unlimited free push notifications to any parent, a group of parents or the entire school instantly and the parent can reply or send their own message to the school.
Parents can view the breakfast, lunch and after school clubs being run by their school. They can scroll through each item in summary and touch them to reveal more detail such as timings, availability, costings and the contact details of the person(s) responsible for running the club. They can then register their child for a club and once approved, they will be notified and any required payment will appear in the payments area.
We make collecting small or large amounts for anything and everything fast, simple and secure. There is no need for a parent to set up an account or transfer funds via online banking, our secure payment system accepts all major debit and credit cards and processes payments straight into the schools bank account without the need for third party systems like PayPal or WisePay.
The Events area contains a summary of all of the upcoming school events for parents and children for example, parents evening, sports day, the first and last day of term, school plays, day trips etc. Each event can be expanded to reveal more detail. When an event is selected by the user it will populate reminders and place an entry in the app device calendar as an automatic reminder.
It's so frustrating to forget about an event or to be reminded at the last minute! Schnappy's unique approach to solve this problem is simple but effective. The reminders area is populated by default when a parent selects an event. The app reminder is directly linked to the device calendar which gives the parent the ability to select exactly how and when they want to be reminded.
Contacting the school to notify them of an absent child is quick and easy. Parents just select the childs name, a brief reason for the absence, the date, expected date of return and then submit. The absence note is then sent in the form of a message to the school administrator.
Normally a difficult and time consuming task to organise for schools that's now simple and quick to achieve. Once an upcoming parents evening is added by the school administrator, parents are notified by the app and directed to make an appointment by booking an available time slot, the appointment made is then automatically sent to the school administrator and added to the parents reminders.
When a parent wants to check if any of their children have homework this area will show all the details you would expect such as what it is, when it was set and when it's due. Each classroom has it's own login where the staff can quickly add the class homework.
When a parent selects an event for their child requiring permission, the consent area of the app is then populated where the parent can go in and provide their consent. Once consent is given the button is disabled so they are then unable to reverse their decision through the app.
It can be difficult for parents to find out the schools term dates quickly and accurately. They normally have to source the information from the school website, contact a fellow parent or resort to contacting the school office. That's why we've added a quick link to the app that gives them instant access to the school calendar.
Intuitive and simple to use.
