The Teachers2Parents App brings together all the communications you receive from your child's school via Teachers2Parents and SchoolMoney into one simple, easy to use app.
If your school uses our Teachers2Parents and/or SchoolMoney products, you can:
• Sync with all your schools, nurseries and clubs that use Teachers2Parents and/or SchoolMoney.
• Get an instant overview of outstanding payments, notifications, recent messages, and more in the home page.
If your school uses the Teachers2Parents messaging platform, within the app you will be able to:
• View all of your messages from the school in the message feed.
• Have term dates at your fingertips within the Term Calendar section.
• Keep up-to-date with the latest news and events via the Noticeboard.
If your school uses the SchoolMoney system to manage their parent payments online, you will be able to:
• Make payments for dinners, trips, clubs, etc.
• Top up your club and dinner credit balance.
• Manage parental permissions for trips and more.
• Purchase shop items.
• Select meal options for your children's dinners.
• View transaction, booking, and meal selection history.
To use the Teachers2Parents App your child's school will need to be using the Teachers2Parents and/or SchoolMoney system and have your phone number stored within one of these services; this is controlled solely by the school. Please contact the school for further information.
Dinner balances, Shop items, payments, Noticeboard updates, term dates, and the contents of messages are managed by the school - issues or queries surrounding these should be directed to the school.
Some functionality within the app is dependent on the school and the subscriptions they have purchased for the SchoolMoney or Teachers2Parents system.
Update for iOS17. Fixes an issue where the app crashes when selecting items from a menu.
Ratings and Reviews
It’s functional at best
When it works properly it serves a purpose and can be useful for making parents and teachers lives easier so I credit the makers for that. However it could and should be so much better. The UI is awful and looks like they got one of the schools to design it. The UX is also poor and daily use can be clunky. Sone of the limitations to things like word count and a lack of emoji support re-enforce the feeling that this app looks like it was made when the iPhone 3 came out.
Hopefully they will listen to all the feedback and make improvements for future schools to come.
Haven’t used this app for long, and if I’m honest, I don’t like the concept. I preferred the old system of receiving a text from a dedicated school number. I don’t want to have to install an app for every business I wish to interact with.
So far as flaws are concerned, the biggest is that I am still receiving the texts. 🙄 I assume that this is due to the app failing to recognising that a mobile number that’s been recorded with the prefix ‘0’ and one that’s been recorded with the prefix ‘+44’ are one and the same. (I registered my number on the app as +447... I assume the school has registered it as 07...
The other is that the app doesn’t seem to send notifications to my phone when there’s a new message, which is just useless.
So basically, by introducing an app, you’ve just made what was a very good system into an annoying one, that doesn’t work and takes up space on my phone. As a governor, I get a very big say in what systems we as a school use - our parents are not currently getting the quality they deserve. My advice to you is to return to the single phone line system, until you have an app that works flawlessly, before you start losing customers.
First I’d like to say thanks to the developer and I can see potential as it gets more widely known about.
We’re on version 1.7 so I guess this is a relatively new app. Me personally am only interested in the messages and timetables but the school my child goes to only use the message feature at this time but I guess they will explore other features later.
The only improvements I’d like to ask for at this moment is:
1, a message notification on the icon sat on the desktop to alert me of a new message. I have to open the app to check for new messages.
2, when you open up messages it goes straight to the bottom where the new messages are sat.
