CORE Module: Events

Our core SB Events Module revolutionises the organisation of school sports teams and fixtures

Events are at the core of our of the SchoolsBuddy system

At the centre of SchoolsBuddy are events. The software is driven by events, which is perfect for the management and organisation of school sports, from training to fixtures. We can take mobile registers, send availability requests, and communicate with parents (and pupils where appropriate) on an event by event level.

Event Creation

Enjoy the flexibility of SchoolsBuddy, and create an event for any kind of activity – from clubs and practices to school trips and lessons.

Request Consent

Request consent from parents for things like school trips. They can reply via SchoolsBuddy, and even add a consent message to let you know they might be late, or will meet you at the venue.

Fee Collection

Fees can be attached to events, whether they’re multi-events, a one off, require a deposit, or just need an upfront payment; SchoolsBuddy has the flexibility to cope with any situation.

Single, Personalised Diary

Functions such as bookings, payment and consent all reflect in the diaries of parents, pupils and staff where appropriate. No double entry, exporting of events, or parents having to look through school calendars. Your own relevant events automatically delivered into one filterable diary.

One Click Cancellation and Notification

Instead of having to compile a list of attendees in another communication system or send a message to the whole school, SchoolsBuddy allows quick, one-click cancellation that sends an email or push notification to parents.

Registers and Attendance

Once a parent consents, it will automatically populate their child or children in SchoolsBuddy’s electronic registers which can be taken on any mobile device, tablet or computer. Registers immediately alert staff is a child is marked absent, ensuring a speedy response in case of emergency.
