mySchoolApp for Fairfield High School     

The mySchoolApp is FREE for you to download and is part of our commitment to communicate quickly with parents and carers, delivering the school’s latest news, events, notifications etc.  We will use mySchoolApp to remind you of upcoming events, notify you if an important letter is being sent, or in an emergency, about a school closure or changes to school transport (e.g. due to weather).

We will of course also continue to use our website to provide this information, and we regularly send emails to all parents and carers.

It is also a quick and convenient way for you to tell us about a child absence.

The app can be used on smartphones and tablet devices running iOS or Android, and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

 mySchoolApp – user set up

When you have downloaded mySchoolApp to your device (phone or tablet) there are just a few things you need to do, to ensure you can get the most from the app.

Registration

Once you have selected Fairfield as your school, you will be requested to enter your details. This is a once only form and enables the app to identify you to the school. The school app administrator will be able to see your name, email and phone number. We also request you create a PIN, which is private. This will be used if you submit an absence notification via the app, ensuring only you can use this feature.

Settings

From the app menu, select Settings. In this area you can

  • update your details
  • add additional schools (which use mySchoolApp)

Push Notifications

Push notifications enable the school to notify you of new messages or events without the need for you to actually open the app. It is recommended that you choose to accept push notifications from mySchoolApp, to ensure that you receive important communications, such as a school closure due to snow or a late coach return, etc.

If you experience any problems with the app set up please contact the school administrator at admin@gvsc.org.uk or email support@myschoolapp.co.uk
