At The Coombes we want our parents to be fully aware of the learning that is taking place during the school day. To do this the school uses mySchoolApp which is FREE for you to download and is part of the school's commitment to communicate with you, in a way that fits in with your life.
The app allows you to keep on top of what's happening at school. Once you have downloaded the app please recommend it to other parents at the school – the more parents who download and use the app,the easier and cheaper it will be for The Coombes to keep everyone up to date with events that have taken place in the school. The app provides bite-sized news items and hosts a gallery where multiple images can be viewed.
The first step is to get mySchoolApp on your phone. The easiest way, is to use your phone to search on the App Store (Apple) or Google Play (Android) for mySchoolApp. It's the one with the multicoloured stickboy app tile. Alternatively, you can click one of the buttons below which will take you to the correct page on the app stores. When you have downloaded mySchoolApp to your device (phone or tablet) there are just a few things you need to do, to ensure you can get the most from the app.
Login to the school
On the opening screen enter the school name. Once you have entered a few letters, the app will give you some suggestions. Tap on the correct school name and you're logged in. You only have to do this once, mySchoolApp will remember your school automatically in future.
From the app menu, select Settings. In this area you can:
- update your details
- remove your account (forget me)
- add additional schools (which use mySchoolApp)
- subscribe to Notification Groups
- choose which language you would prefer to read the app content*
- *only visible if the school has taken the languages option
Push notifications enable the school to notify you of new messages or events without the need for you to actually open the app. It is recommended that you choose to accept push notifications from mySchoolApp, to ensure that you receive communications.
