Parental communication is top of the agenda at Wirral Council Primary School Leaders Conference and Exhibition where Contact Group is showcasing its Call Parents messaging system, used by local schools such as Barnston Primary School.
Held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Liverpool, senior leaders, including Head Teachers and Deputy Heads from 90 Primary Schools in the Wirral area will discuss areas of improvement in Primary Schools in Wirral such as systems that will improve communications with parents and opportunities for cost savings. Contributing to the agenda, Contact Group will showcase its communications and reporting solution, Call Parents, for schools and local authorities. The highly successful communications solution includes ‘Text a Letter’ functionality, enabling schools to text letters to parents instead of having to print and post them, resulting in significant cost savings for schools.
In addition to standard news and updates for parents, it is important for schools to be able to contact parents in urgent situations such as a school closure due to adverse weather conditions. Stephen Clarke, Managing Director, Contact Group, comments: “With the recent severe weather conditions in Britain, it’s particularly important that schools have a reliable communications system to keep parents informed about school closures. Our Call Parents automated notification system has played a major role in reducing inconvenience caused by school closures by informing parents quickly about the latest situation.”
The event is organised in association with the Education Quality team of Wirral Council. Michael Cladingbowl, Ofsted’s Director for Schools, will deliver a keynote address on the first day.
