Beacon Rise has a mobile app! As part of the schools’ ongoing improvements we are really excited to announce this new development which will improve communications across the whole school community.

The app design we have chosen has proven hugely successful in primary and secondary schools from both independent (private) and maintained state schools. The “Szapp” app is simple to install, very user-friendly and replaces our existing text messaging services completely from the end of Term 5 2019. This means that from 3rd June 2019 all school text messages will be sent via app notifications, if you do not have the app notifications switched on you will not be able to receive these updates.

The new app will give you

  • Essential messaging updates for live information about your child.
  • Improved access to school dates and information about events.
  • Digital forms for permission slips, event bookings with links to ParentPay.
  • School newsletter.
  • …loads more to come!

The best way for you to take advantage of this is to start by downloading the app now.

  1. Go to the app store
  2. Search for Szapp
  3. Select download
  4. Select Europe as your global location
  5. Select Beacon Rise Primary School

Once installed, you will soon see you can opt-in for your class updates, see the school diary for upcoming events and there will be more exciting developments on the homepage over this coming year. You must ensure you have turned all notifications on, without these enabled you will miss important messages.

From the first day of next term and during the build-up as we start to use the app, we will be running a few surprises and competitions to help you familiarise your way around.

We hope this means you will feel more in control of what information you receive, how you can access the information you need to know and it will also help us to be more efficient with the messages we send to you.
