SMS and Email Communication
SMS Communication from the School
The Sacred Heart School has the capability to send SMS (text) messages to the mobile phones of all or some of the parents. The service is provided by JANET, the UK's education and research network.
This avenue of communication proved especially valuable earlier this year when heavy snowfalls caused school closure and we were able to send up-to-date information quickly and efficiently to all parents.
We have also used text messages effectively with school trips where parents could be informed of safe arrivals abroad and revised return information in the event of travel delays.
Parents should note that this system will only work if the school has accurate mobile telephone number data and you are asked to let the school know immediately when mobile phone numbers change.
Email Communication from the School
Over the course of this year it is hoped that the school will be able to collect email address data for parents so that email as an avenue of communication will become available.
