Did you know, School Life now helps all of Dudley educational settings, from child minders and nurseries to higher and further education?
We would like to welcome the latest schools below, to join 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 0121 461 9140 .
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 0121 461 9140 .
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”.
With our outdated website in desperate need of a revamp, we approached ‘School Life’ for help. After our initial meeting with Mike and Michelle, it quickly became clear that this was the company we wanted to use.
They offered an impressive bespoke service right from the off. Communication was excellent from pre to post production. Mike and Michelle were clear on what we wanted and what they were able to provide. They were organised and professional and really took on board our input during the editing stages. They really cared about getting it right! Nothing was too much trouble for them. The end results were perfect really capturing the ethos of our school.
We couldn’t be happier with the final result and I would recommend ‘School Life’ every time.
We moved to School Life from our previous website provider because we needed more control over the day-to-day management of our website content.
From day one Mike and Michelle were professional and supportive and worked with us to transition to our new website, which they managed in a very short time scale. They listened to everything we needed and gave us a website which met all of our requirements. Whenever we have a question or a problem, there is a live chat available and the support is there straight away.
I would have no problem with recommending School Life to develop a website and we are only just scratching the surface of the other benefits it will give us in the future, such as parents’ evening bookings and messaging services.
We have worked with Mike, Michelle and their team for a number of years now and have always been overwhelmed with their support, knowledge and ability to complete requests professionally, calmly and quickly.
Prior to using School Life we used another communication platform that was difficult to navigate and was very antiquated in it’s design. Moving to School Life has been refreshing and has made what was once a tedious job, very easy and manageable. There is no request that is too much for Mike and his team and their support during lockdown was second to none.
Doing the newsletter on a Friday is now plain sailing and effortless and our parents are extremely happy with the simplistic and easy to use style of the app and website. Thank you to all of the School Life team!!!
School Life were flexible and responsive from the outset with the initial website designs.
Their speed and efficiency are second to none from the initial design to any requests for change - everything is done almost instantly.
The website itself has given us a much fresher look. More than happy.
