in addition to regular newsletters, emails, and tweets we use the scholarpack app to message parents/carers. It is simple to download from your app store and link to your child once you have received a link-up code.
Installing the app
The ScholarPack Parents app is available free of charge on Apple and Google app stores. Simply search ‘ScholarPack Parents’ and download.
Once you have installed the app and opened it on your phone, click ‘let’s get started’. You will be prompted to enter a link-up code and your mobile number.
You will receive the link-up code once your child has started in school. This code will last 60 days, if you do not link-up in that time you will need to request a new one from the school.
After you have entered the link-up code, add your mobile number (please make sure this is the same number you have given to the school) and clicked ‘continue’. You will be sent a ‘one time passcode’ via text message. Enter this passcode and submit. You should then see a ‘connection successful’ message.
You have now completed the link-up with the app and school.
If you have multiple children linked with the ScholarPack app, you will see your children pop up in a list. Please click the child you wish to view.
On the main dashboard you will see information about your child's form, year and the school's address.
You will also see a percentage overview of your child's attendance. Below this, you will see the following five options:
- - Attendance
- - Contacts
- - Permissions
- - Dietary Info
- - Medical
Click on these icons to see an overview of the information the school holds for your child. Please contact us via the messaging function if any of the information is incorrect or needs updating.
Navigating to messaging
Getting to your messages is easy. Once in the app, click ‘messages’ at the bottom of the screen and you’re in. From here you will be able to view your new messages, reply to any messages (where applicable) and view historic message threads.
Receiving a message
If you have your notifications switched on (you can do this in your phone’s settings area) then when you receive a message from the school you will be notified on your phone.
The app button will also show a notification if you have any new messages.
Alternatively access the app and then click on messages to see all of your ongoing and historic messages.
Just click on the message to read what has been sent.
