School Communicator Application

The School Communicator application is the new way that parents can stay in touch with what is happening in their children’s school at their fingertips. The application is easy to use you can download it on your computer/tablet/smartphone too. You only get the news relevant you and your child by personalizing it.

1. You visit schools will appear and choose your child’s school.

2. Choose the device of your choice Windows, Android, Mac or Blackberry then install on your desktop or tablet even smart phone. On the Android tablet it is just under 5MB and so the School Communicator is a light application.

3. A Notice board will appear in your child’s school news.


5. You have the choice to personalize what you see by choosing your Child’s grade and you can choose which categories/channels you want to subscribe to, to avoid clutter.


On the School Communicator there are 6 menu bars and they are as follows News, Calender, Multimedia, Resourses, Homework and Contacts.These categories/channels have information like the Term assessment planners, Excursions reminders, extra-mural program times and days, Exam timetables, daily homework, school events updates for all the grades and contact details for the school.

Any information you share with the School Communicator is absolutely private and is protected by Thawte. The school communicator will automatically update daily so you may want to change your firewall settings to allow it to run and the data usage varies from the updates and the type of content loaded but expect to use typically from 30Mb per month.

I think the School Communicator is an absolutely amazing idea and the schools are keeping up with technology I mean we spend most of our time on our tablets and smartphones at work and home. The schools have found a way to send parents’ messages in other ways than a newsletter. There are about 1757 schools using the d6 School Communicator, I am happy that my child’s school is one of them.
Parents what do you think about the School Communicator?

    My kids all have their homework through on line, but they share a PC that won’t open it as it isn’t modern enough then it drives me mad that i have 6 wanting to use my PC when I’m working to do their homework. I think schools should provide the tablets or lap tops if they are going to hand out homework this way as we don’t have them here. I do however like the emails from school rather than newsletters on paper in school bags. If you only have one or two children and they have their own PC and printer that’s great, but I think schools are asking alot to assume everyone has this. I should also point out that all mine are at secondary school. Sorry that wasn’t supposed to be a rant, I like what you suggest here, just difficult to assume everyone has tablets at home. #MarvMondays

      Hi Fiona

      Rant not minded I totally agree that not everyone has Tablets, and my laptop is also old age that i could not run the CD they sent from school but opted to download on my tablet. yes schools tend to make assumption on things too

      Thank you for your thought provoking comment 🙂

    We have another online platform here in Australia and it has been amazing. Definitely keeps everyone in the loop and increases accessibility. Thanks for sharing with #abitofeverything

    I think this is a great way for schools to better communicate with and inform parents. In the UK many schools use similar systems which I think are great. Schools definitely need to keep up with the way that people engage and communicate so its great to see that lots of them are, and across the world too! Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays 🙂 Emily

    I love the School Communicator especially to check my kids’ homework every day. Because they often forget what homework they have. But it also depends on the teachers uploading the homework daily which they don’t often do.
