We love our new App. The only thing we would like to request is the option to manually add contacts. We have some students who are in care and do not have anyone in our MIS system with PR but this means they do not pull through into ParentHub.

I personally love the Parent Hub app, it makes communicating with our parents so easy - I must use it at least 10 times a day, if not more! It took a while to get all our parents on board, but after the initial set up, it has been so easy to use. If there is ever a problem, a quick phone call to Mike and everything is resolved straight away! New features are being added all the time which makes my life easier eg templates and the edit and resend function for messages.

Sally Bailey found Parent Hub:
  • Significantly saves school money
    We can send direct messages to parents free of charge whereas previously we paid a significant yearly amount for our text messaging service. We have also saved money on printing costs as the majority of our correspondence goes out via the Hub.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    Too many to mention, but an example is we can schedule a message to go out on a Sunday evening reminding parents to order their children's meals for the following week. It is great for posting messages and photo's of events going on in school and for informing parents of last-minute cancellations of after-school activities.
  • Significantly improves parent engagement
    See previous response. As all our parents have the app on their phones, we know they will receive any important messages we send out, which is followed up with an email if they haven't read/received it for whatever reason.

We think it's fab. We like the added bonus of the app, it makes our organisation current and relevant.

Heather found Parent Hub:
  • Significantly saves school money
    We were eligible for a free package when Parent Hub first launched in a scheme through the council. We only pay for e-mail and txt bundles. This was a significant price drop from our previous provider.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    Staff have access to their classes, groups and private messages. We are able to attach links to websites and documents to the messages we send. We are also not limited to how many characters are in the messages, allowing for no miss communication.
  • Significantly improves parent engagement
    We are able to see when parents have read the messages. We are also able to see if parents have the app, and give the ones that don't have the app a reminder of how to download.

Parent Hub has been, and continues to be, such a great tool for directly, group or whole school messaging. It helps track what is sent and who is reading (or not). We use it everyday, all day! Seamlessly syncronising with our MIS to have access to every contact available, we have atleast 93% engagement on the app and all the rest we can still reach via email or sms. Couldn't recommend it more, especially with over 600 contacts to keep in touch with!

Virginie Sanchez

Office Administrator

Used Parent Hub for 1-2 years

Feb 2021

ParentHub is a very simple platform to use but an amazingly powerful tool. ParentHub can pride themselves on an extremely reliable system and an impressively reactive support team. I can't speak highly enough of their ability to listen and take suggestions onboard. ParentHub is in constant development, and so far always for the better!

Virginie Sanchez found Parent Hub:
  • Significantly saves school money
    We have been able to send all school letters and communications to our 300+ parents and carers in high res, colourful pdf thus saving on printing/paper/mailing costs. Sending targeted, instant direct messages to contacts - with the ability to track whether messages have been read - has been a huge time (and therefore money) saver for our school.
  • Moderately improves school processes
    The most recent and significant impact of ParentHub for our school has been on maintaining clear, smooth communications at all levels during each lockdown : - the main school channel is fed by our Headteacher and Children and Families Officer (school life updates, mental health resources and support, COVID19 information, etc) - each class has its own channel where teachers can post specific timetables, links to remote learning, useful reminders etc. - direct messages also allow teaching or admin staff to easily offer additional resources/support to individual children. Together with our school website, ParentHub has been instrumental in reaching out to our families at this difficult time in a very simple, cost effective and immediate way.
  • Significantly improves parental engagement
    The functionalities developed by ParentHub have improved parent engagement greatly: - the interactive dates/times in messages allow parents to easily add to their calendar and remember school events/appointments easily. - the search function mean parents can easily find a specific message/piece of information in past communications. - quite a few parents use the "e-mail the school" direct button from the school page on ParentHub to contact us. At our end we have been able to monitor when a parent became less (or in-)active, which enabled us to proactively contact them and offer support where needed.

Parenthub is so easy to use, it is a fantastic way to be able to communicate with parents/carers. I use it daily to send home reminders, letters. We would have been completely lost without Parenthub during the COVID lockdown. The support is fantastic too, if I have ever been unsure of anything Mike is always available to help and talk me through. James has created and put together many a parent survey for us. All of the surveys have been great and easy for parents/carers to complete. I know that if there is ever anything I need or am unsure of, I can telephone or email and have a reply right away.

Lisa Watson found Parent Hub:
  • Significantly saves school money
