Welcome to Piota Schools for iPhone and iPad.
Piota Schools, is the most direct way for your school or nursery to provide you with rich, timely and relevant information. You can read it there and then, browse it later, respond if necessary, or simply use it as a reference source when out and about. All straight from your iPhone or iPad, making life simpler.
Important summaries from Blogs, website news, newsletters and Twitter are all curated in one place in a format that is bite sized and looks great on your iPhone or iPad. Share the best bits with your parents!
Consistently a favourite feature, our event calendar is a lot more accessible than the one pinned to the fridge at home and it is more accurate too as it’s automatically updated. Use filters to narrow down the entries to ones of most interest to you, and you can add priority events to the personal calendar on your iPhone or iPad.
Push notifications or Alerts reach you as quickly as a text but can contain richer content like video, pictures and documents as well as words. Opt-in to whichever groups you most want to hear from to personalise reminders, late bus announcements, forms, accounts of the day, weekly newsletters and much more. You are in control and won't be bombarded with everything or feel left out of the loop.
Photos and Video
Pictures paint a thousand words, photos a million and our support for videos lets you see the school musical, highlights from the school day, or the latest updates from your child's class. Share these with social media accounts and other services by tapping the Action button in the app on your iPhone or iPad .
Menus, price lists, contact details, timetables, uniform requirements, key dates, who’s who, packing lists, legal policies, procedures documents, handbooks - not necessarily the reading material of choice but if you do need to refer to some or all from time to time it's best have them handy, easily accessible and all in one place.
Forms and surveys
No more need for paper or emailed forms which are such a bore to fill out and return. Now you can reply directly on the app in 10 seconds if you’re in a hurry or at more length if not. Snap surveys are shorter and more to the point than online ones and equally easy to fill out and volley back.
We have addressed an issue where notifications were cleared when the app opens. Notifications from an organisation that is loaded but not the current one now load forms, surveys, and other articles correctly. We have added more language localisation support. We have improved the information we receive when you provide app feedback. We have made the Urgent channel non editable. Icons for forms and surveys in the Alerts pages have been adjusted.

Gets frozen/stuck and takes ages/so many days to get back to normal. Had to get my daughter’s homework from app but it’s stuck from so many days now will have to request her teacher to give me on paper as last day is fast approaching. Missed all important notifications from school
Adequate but buggy
It’s not the app’s fault that a school doesn’t utilise all of its features, but the developer has responsibility for its operation.
The app on iPhone is quite buggy and crashes when switching between items. Sometimes it doesn’t load at all.
The look is quite dated to my eyes, but I guess it does the job. Stability is the most important thing and it’s not quite up to the task.
The ap works fine for me but I am v concerned about the lack of a need for passwords or sign in or verification of even having a child at a school. In theory I could sign in to any school without having a child- and view all their information and photos. This is really a considerable oversight, in my view and needs to be addressed. I’m surprised that schools have taken this on given the lack of information security for their pupils.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
