    Email communication to parents

    Hi there, I am an aspiring SBM and have been given the project of researching and implementing an email communication system from school to parents. Does anyone have any experience of this? How do you do it in your school? We are worried that it will make extra work as those without email access will need a paper copy of letters and we will have to personalise them. Any thoughts/advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Nicky

    Many of the proprietary school emailers will tell you who needs a paper copy.

    We use parentmail. It takes the entire school role. When you send out an email to a group of people it produces a report telling you who has to be given a paper copy.

    It also handles the split families situation where both Mum and Dad need copies... and copes with 'one per family' too. There's nothing more annoying than getting 3 emails about the same thing!

    We have used Schoolcomms for a while now which has gone down very well with the admin staff and parents and does the same kind of things as mentioned above.

    We use PARS for a lot of things and this is one of the things it can do so we just use that, for both e-mailing and texting.
