Changes for Aug 2018
12 Jun 2018
Another step forward to continue with efficiencies is the removal of cash/cheque payments. Many
schools now operate as a cashless site as online payments become the norm. The school now takes
very little cash and therefore this is no longer an efficient way of working. Therefore, from August, the
school will only accept online payments through ParentPay (and Tucasi Scopay for Breakfast
You can obtain logon details from the school office; for those that have not registered by 12th July we will
send a letter with your logon details home with your child. The office staff can assist you with any
technical difficulties you may have and if access to the internet is an issue, we will also be making
access available to IT at school during certain times, if necessary.
Weduc – our new school app!
Last month we launched our new school app through a company called Weduc. This is a complete
communication tool that the school will be using to communicate with parents. The system is secure as
access is only available to Willesley parents who are given a unique logon code to register. After half
term, we will still continue to send text messages (which may result in duplication of messages) but from
the Autumn Term, we will only be sending messages and letters through the app, so please
download this to your mobile device as soon as possible.
You can also view Weduc on a PC/tablet, but it is aimed at mobiles to ensure you receive the latest
updates/push notifications wherever you are.
The app has many features that we will gradually introduce. It will be used to send general messages,
consent/invite messages to which you can respond, letters home (replacing emails), surveys, electronic
forms etc. You will soon be able to inform school of daily absences and parents evening will be booked
through the app too. It is also a place to go to for links to important school information (in The Hub) and
to see the school’s virtual Noticeboard. A few of you have already tried out the electronic Absence
Request Form and we would welcome any feedback over the coming months. Please bear with us as we
also learn to negotiate this new software.
If you have any queries regarding the above, please speak to Mrs Ball, Mrs Baldwin or Mrs Watson.
