Dear Parents and Carers
Important information regarding Parentmail Upgrade – action required
Action required: As we move to Parentmail’s latest platform we need you to re-register with Parentmail. All those who are marked on our SIMS database as having parental responsibility will receive an email or text message from Parentmail – when you receive this please just follow the instructions in the message. You must re-register to continue using Parentmail. See below for further information.
From Monday 10 July 2017 we will be upgrading to PMX – ParentMail’s latest platform.
The benefits to this are that we will have more applications to use, meaning we can use ParentMail in the future to send home Forms, Permissions and Surveys, Meeting and Event invitations as well as a free mobile App for you to pick up school communications on the go!
PMX will be beneficial to you because you can:
- Use a free mobile app on Android and iOS to pick up school messages instantly.
- Have an account simply for school messages (away from your busy email inbox!)
- Connect to other schools, nurseries or clubs that use ParentMail.
- Highlight important messages or archive old messages to make life easier.
- Messages can be sent directly to mums, dads and carers – even grandparents!
Registering with ParentMail is very easy! Over the next few days you will be sent either an email and/or text message from ParentMail, when you receive this please just follow the instructions in the message.
Once registered, if you have an Android or Apple smartphone, we would highly recommend you download the ParentMail App for the best user experience. To do this, simply search for “ParentMail”in your App store.
Please be assured that ParentMail is registered with the Information Commissioner and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
If you need any additional information or assistance, please visit the help site: www.parentmail.co.uk/help/parenthelp/ or if you have not received any contact from ParentMail by Monday 17 July please contact the school office.
