Changes for Aug 2018

12 Jun 2018

Dear Parents, Cashless Site 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 Club). 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. Yours sincerely, School Office Team
