According to Statista over 20% of pupils in schools in the UK in 2022/23 have English as an additional language. We recognised the need for school to parent communication to be more inclusive for the many parents left literally, lost in translation. You can now transform the way your school connects with parents by using our in app language translator.

The first and only school app that allows parents to access all school communication in over 100 languages. Additionally, bidirectional translation means you can now have full conversations with parents where both parties can fully understand.
