Schoop


 


Schoop is an app that allows us to communicate with parents via a mobile device such as a mobile phone or tablet. The app allows us to send information directly to your mobile device. Examples include:

> Information Letters
> Newsletters
> Calendar of Events
> Reminders of Special Events

One key advantage of the app is that you will be able to give permission for your child to attend a trip via the app.

At the touch of a button Schoop allows you to review information sent to you previously; all on your mobile device. The app is relatively small (5.2MB), which is equivalent to two/three pictures on your mobile phone and FREE to download. All information sent to you on the app is pulled from the Schoop server and not stored on your mobile phone; the only space taken up by Schoop is by the app itself. The app can also be used by multiple family members ensuring that messages are never missed.

To install the app, please follow the instructions below:

 

Installing on an Apple Device

1. Download the Schoop app by going to: www.schoop.co.uk/apple.

2. Enter the Schoop ID: Available in person from the office staff.

3. Choose the relevant groups and confirm. You should only select the classes that you have children in.

4. Click the pencil in the new Alert to complete your registration. The system will continue to ask you do to this until all details have been entered.

Installing on an Android Device

1. Download the Schoop app by going to: www.schoop.co.uk/android.

2. Enter the Schoop ID: Available in person from the office staff.

3. Choose the relevant groups and confirm. You should only select the classes that you have children in.

If you do not have an Apple or Android mobile device then you can still use Schoop by subscribing via email. To do this simply go to www.schoop.co.uk/email and follow the instructions on screen. 

Support is available via Schoop. They are more than happy to help and can be contacted by going to www.schoop.co.uk and clicking on ‘Support’. Alternatively you can email them at support@schoop.co.uk.

At the start of the Summer Term 2018, our aim is to fully embed the Schoop Communication System. At this point in time we will no longer send communication to you via our current method of pupil post / text messages, but instead all communication will be via Schoop.
