School Life would like to welcome the Birmingham Federation of Maintained Nurseries to the School Life community
As many children are home schooling, we have created a new facility for teachers to be able to stream lessons and be able to answer questions via live chat.
Teachers can broadcast lessons from anywhere, be that school or home. They can broadcast voice and video of themselves or just share a screen to explain a certain topic.
With the ability to post a YouTube video instead of a live stream, you also have the flexibility to engage with the audience on another level.
Use the system for lessons for individual classes or pupils, maybe even the morning school prayer or just leave it live for the school day so as pupils can ask questions.
Schools can now activate the method for parents, students and staff to easily record their LFT results within the website and app, saving valuable time for administrators within your school.
You can choose to receive the results via email to a single or multiple email accounts. You can also have the results collated in a spreadsheet for you to download on a daily basis.
Get in touch now for a demonstration and see how this works by emailing email@example.com, or by telephone on 01384 386616 .
We are pleased to launch our interactive homework solution. During these testing times we wanted to enhance our platform further, so our children can have the best possible facilities for their education.
We are helping schools prepare for any eventuality, be that back in school or at home.
Get in touch now for a demonstration and see how homework can now be completed online by the students firstname.lastname@example.org, by telephone on 01384 386616 .
We have created a new facility for teachers to be able to share lesson plans and other resources - such as documents, images and audio files.
Information added here is shared between ALL schools that use the School Life platform and allows members to leave comments, such as suggestions or corrections.
We hope you find this feature a useful collaboration tool in these difficult times.
Having been asked to build a one-off system for one particular primary school in England, the development team behind the project quickly recognised that on average a typical UK school will have to use at least 4 different and completely separate methods in order to deliver various necessary communications (whether via SMS, Whats App, printed paper, email or 3rd party apps for different tasks such as homework apps, parents evening apps, etc).
Compounding the misery for the schools is the fact that each of these separate and unconnected systems will have their own individual costs which in addition can add up to many thousands of pounds each year for the school to find from their already tightly stretched budgets – money which could be better spent on additional valuable resources.
Instead of all this unnecessary resource and cost wastage School Life has been built specifically to provide a simple one stop solution that caters for many forms of communication, yet at a fraction of schools’ current costs. School Life is unique in the UK with no other fully encompassing products available to schools anywhere.
Each school has been fully surveyed after their first 3 months of usage. The School Life platform has received an across the board 10/10 from 100% of the initial 35 schools.
This compares to an average of 3/10 for the school’s previous communication facilities, as rated by the same 35 schools.
An Ofsted inspector recently commented when seeing School Life at one of the participating schools that the School Life system was;
“over and above requirements and extremely impressive”.
We have been extremely satisfied by the service we have received from School Life.
From day one they have made the transition from our old website to the new website with them seamless. Their response time is excellent and contact with them is always courteous. The training and support we have received has been first rate and they are always available to help us. The School Life website is very easy to navigate and edit.
First class company! We thoroughly recommend School Life
Our app has been downloaded by parents and allows us to communicate more effectively with them. The messaging service is amazing and the newsletter option is also so adaptable to our school needs.
Uploading any photographs to the site is just a case of dragging and dropping pictures in (saves hours of time).
We are currently working with the team at School Life web design to redesign our school website and improve communication with parents.
I have been delighted with the package of a new website and an information app for Android and iOS devices.
The support offered is first class and I would unreservedly recommend working with the School Life team. The clincher for me was a link to Google translate that automatically translates your webpage and its content into any language your school serves.
