Encouraging Everyone Topic 1: Parents


With all parents using eSchools you can ensure efficiency and save money! Encouraging your parents will help you too! This video will illustrate the benefits of parents getting on board with their own unique login, what they may not know, how they can stay engaged with their child’s development and how logging on regularly can save time for the school.

Encouraging Everyone Topic 2: Teachers


With all teachers using eSchools your staff can communicate, collaborate and share resources. This video will point out the benefits of teachers getting logged in and involved, not just for them but for all staff. It will illustrate some of the time saving and engaging features for colleagues, students and their parents!

Encouraging Everyone Topic 3: Students


Barriers that students face from using eSchools are few, but this video will identify what they may be and how you can overcome them. We’ll illustrate how using eSchools can assist them to stay engaged and complete work online, and how their parents can monitor their progress.

Share Your Experiences


If this month’s Catch-Up theme has resonated with you, we (and our schools) would like to hear about it! Perhaps you have followed some of this month’s advice and it has improved your use of the platform. Perhaps you have used the platform in a way we haven’t illustrated and have found that this has helped, or maybe you’ve spotted something that we have forgotten! Your first hand feedback will be added to the Academy’s Community page for all schools to access. Sharing your experiences of the eSchools platform is helpful to other schools and also lets us know which areas of the platform you are using effectively. You can also achieve the ‘Team Player’ eBadge through contributing your views (see more here). To share your stories (as well as images and video if you can!) please use the online form here.
