Parent Portal - Social Schools

Parent Portal Social Schools

We use Social Schools, an online communication platform for primary education. The goal is to give parents insight into classroom activities in a simple, visually appealing, and informative manner. We believe it's important for you to stay informed about what your child is working on, as not all children share everything they do at school. This way, you can better support your child(ren) in their learning process.

How does it work?

The teacher posts messages in the class, such as announcements about sports days, excursions, or information about the teaching methods being used. As a parent, you can view this information by logging in via the mobile app or the web environment. You can also directly add agenda items to your phone calendar through the app, receiving timely reminders and never missing events. Parents receive an email invitation with a link to activate their account. Curious about how this works? View it [here](link to be inserted).

Closed Environment

Social Schools is a secure, closed platform. Only parents authorized by the school have access to the environment. Parents only have access to their children's groups.
