  3. Text message bundles can be bought in order to send text messages directly to parents’ who do not have smartphones. All mobile numbers are available instantly when School Spider synchronises with your MIS.

Parents’ Evening Booking System

You can easily setup and manage your parents’ evenings, with simple buttons and icons to set breaks and extend or merge meeting slots. Parents’ are notified by smartphone message and email when the parents’ evening is available for booking. They can then go to either the School Spider App or the school website to choose the slots that they want to book for all children. When booking has closed you can download the parent bookings list as a PDF or Excel with the click of a button.

Parent Payment System

Easily setup school trips, after school clubs, lunches and more to take instant payments from parents. The interface is easy to use for both parents and staff making purchasing items from school simple and quick. The school shop can be accessed by parents both through the School Spider App or by logging in through the school website and there are no limits on the amount you can sell or the number of parents using the system. Refunds are made directly to the parents’ credit or debit card with the click of a button.

Parent Surveys

Save time and make your communication with parents 100% paperless. Quickly get parental consent for trips, clubs or class sessions or survey parents for vital information. You can build surveys and forms by adding questions and answer options and view live preview of your forms before sending to parents. Parents’ are notified by smartphone message and email when there is a new survey to complete and can access and complete the survey through the School Spider App or by logging into the parents’ area on your school website.

Parent forums

Staff can create vibrant discussions for parents to comment on in a safe and secure area.
