The new school app was launched with S5 pupils this week as part of our ongoing strategy to develop communication in the school. We hope that the app will enable us to get important information to pupils directly, and to provide pupils with a means of accessing useful information at their fingertips. The trial will last for a few weeks before being rolled out to all year groups over the next few months.
Parents and carers of S5 pupils will receive information next week to enable them to register with the app. The the app will allow the school to send notifications to registered users.
The app is currently available for download for Apple and android phones. Please search for “Bell Baxter” in the app stores.
