We try very hard to keep parents regularly informed about what’s going on at the school, however, sending paper letters home can be rather ‘hit and miss’ with letters often going astray along the way.
We are also increasingly aware of the substantial cost, time and environmental impact associated with the amount of paper and photocopying involved with this.
To help improve these areas we use a service called ParentMailX, which is used by over 3,500 schools across the UK to communicate with 2 million parents by email and text message.
ParentMailX will be beneficial to you because:
- Messages will get to you reliably
- We can send messages directly to mums and dads at the same time
- You will quickly know about important or urgent messages
- We can tell you more about what’s going on at the school
To use ParentMailX we need to collect your email addresses and mobile numbers and we would ask you to complete the blue ‘ParentMailX Data Capture’ form in your pack. Please ensure that your email addresses are clear and legible. The majority of letters sent home will be via email, it is your responsibility to check your emails on a regular basis and ensure that all email addresses and mobile numbers are kept up to date.
Please be assured that ParentMailX is registered with the Data Protection Registrar and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
Important – ParentMailX email messages will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org. Please add this address to your email address books (or approved sender list) to prevent messages from being blocked by your SPAM/JUNK filters.
