Why was School Life developed?
Having been asked to build a one-off system for one particular primary school in England, the development team behind the project quickly recognised that on average a typical UK school will have to use at least 4 different and completely separate methods in order to deliver various necessary communications (whether via SMS, WhatsApp, printed paper, email or 3rd party apps for different tasks such as homework apps, parents evening apps, etc).
Compounding the misery for the schools is the fact that each of these separate and unconnected systems will have their own individual costs which in addition can add up to many thousands of pounds each year for the school to find from their already tightly stretched budgets – money which could be better spent on additional valuable resources.
Instead of all this unnecessary resource and cost wastage School Life has been built specifically to provide a simple one-stop solution that caters for many forms of communication, yet at a fraction of schools’ current costs. School Life is unique in the UK with no other fully encompassing products available to schools anywhere.
How is School Life being rated by schools?
Each school has been fully surveyed after their first 3 months of usage. The School Life platform has received an across the board 10/10 from 100% of the initial 35 schools.
This compares to an average of 3/10 for the school’s previous communication facilities, as rated by the same 35 schools.
An Ofsted inspector recently commented when seeing School Life at one of the participating schools that the School Life system was;
“over and above requirements and extremely impressive”.
