We are pleased to introduce our new Mobile App, it is designed to keep you informed about your child's education and life at school, it will also help to cut down on paper and ink consumption. We will post school news, events, curriculum information, letters and be able to send messages to parents/carers.
Whether you are out and about with your phone or at home with access to a tablet, you will always have a quick and convenient way to find key information or simply browse.
How to download the app
You can get the app if you have an Apple or Android phone and/or tablet, visit the Apple app store or Google Play on your device and search for "Oasis Academy Henderson Avenue". You may download the app onto multiple devices but will need to install separately on each one.
Key Tips For Using the App
1. Start by visiting the Settings page (via 'More' tile on Home page) and turn on the year groups you are interested in. The app will then alert you to relevant messages in these categories.
Please leave the Urgent alerts category turned on. This is for messages from the school to everyone about urgent matters.
2. The Alerts tile contains a record of the alert messages you have been sent by the school. The circular counter on the app shows how many unread messages you have.
3. It is a good idea to close the app when not in use. This allows content to refresh and you will not miss anything urgent since alert messages will pop up on your phone even when the app is off.
4. If the school hold your details as contact information for your child then you will be able to register by clicking on the lock symbol top right of the Home screen.
The app will fully come into use in January 2018 and will be our main form of communication between parents and the academy with regards to news and events. We will slowly phase out our facebook page and become a paperless school as much as possible. This will mean that our weekly newsletter and trip letters to parents will be sent via the app. We would be grateful if you could start registering now in preparation for going ‘live’ in January.
If you have any queries regarding the above, or would like to look at a preview of the app, please contact the school office.
