“SchoolsBuddy reduces the number of systems we need”
“SchoolsBuddy reduces the number of systems we need to manage our events and communications. This saves us time, money and enables us do so much more, we are thrilled!”
Ben Miller, IT Manager
“I love having everything in one place”
“SchoolsBuddy is such a vast improvement on the systems Chesswood used before, now I have just one system for everything. I can register for after school clubs & parents evenings but also give consent for school trips and make payment for these immediately after consenting. It is so fast and saves me so much time.
The best thing of the lot though is the fact that I love having everything in one place. MyDiary, newsletter, notices, consent invites and quick access to my payment history. It’s so clever!”
Becky, Chesswood Parent
What modules Chesswood use…
Parent Consent for any event (inc School Trips)
Paperless parent consent for all event types with our clever, double verified consent requests. Quick to send, fast to respond and clearly displayed in the staff view.
After school clubs signup and allocation
Allow parents to register for after school clubs and allocate in one click. The events then automatically populates the pupil diary.
Request availability & consent, provide map and location details , communicate travel options and update with any cancellations or travel delays.
Fees / Payments
Create event based fees. When a parent consents for an event, you can allocate a cost to their balance which is visible to the pupil and their parents. This balance can be paid via the parents online.
Parents Evening Bookings
Create parent evening events and allow parents to sign up per teacher, per class. Fast, intuitive and events then populate into the teacher and parent diary.
