Holy Family Catholic Primary School in Blackpool are using both SchoolPing and a website designed by New Era. We spoke to their Head Teacher, Helen Moreton, about how she feels the school has changed since implementing these solutions.
Before starting using SchoolPing the teachers at Holy Family Catholic Primary School were sending out a weekly printed newsletter. Helen wanted a solution that could provide easy and instant communication – and save her staff time and money on collate and print the newsletters.
Since getting SchoolPing, more parents are engaging with the content sent to them. Helen confirms that the feedback has been great.
More parents will respond to a school app than when we used paper. We reach a wider group of parents now, and they have a much better understanding of what’s going on in our school. It’s a lot quicker now too!
When it comes to their school website, Helen wanted a more appealing look and design. New Era’s team of experts can provide a wide selection of themes to choose from, as well as custom designed options, and Helen was pleased to find a design that could represent the Holy Family Catholic Primary School. For any school, the customer support given to them during a website build is obviously important. Working with someone who understands your design ideas, and can teach you the functions of a new website should be paramount when choosing a web designer.
New Era were very helpful and happy to change things we weren’t happy with- several times! Now that the website is built is very easy for myself and my colleagues to edit and update the pages ourselves.
