Parental Engagement Apps

Apps Central, provide your school or nursery with your own school app to keep parents, carers and your wider community informed, involved and engaged.

We develop your School app for Apple and Android devices. Our model is to rent the app and there is no fixed term contract, all at an affordable cost. We provide full training on how to take advantage of having an app, and we are always on the end of the phone or email for any queries you might have.

A school app from Apps Central has a range of great features to reduce admin, increase parental engagement and keep your school or nursery community informed. Parents are conveniently able to keep in touch with the school and be the first to know about events and news within the school.

“We are delighted with the app and have been gathering feedback at parents evening this week….everyone is saying that it is fantastic and very useful.  So far only 8 parents are saying that they haven’t downloaded the app and our digital leaders were on hand last night to help them!”
