SchoolPost is a school-home communications tool that brings together email, SMS, secure web-based messaging, and online reply and consent forms into an integrated, interactive and customisable package. It covers all aspects of parent communication from routine letters to trip forms to individual reports and assessments, and it’s already trusted and loved by dozens of mutual clients. I’m delighted to announce that SchoolPost is becoming part of Firefly Learning.
With many traditional channels now impossible, dialogue has become harder just as schools must enrol millions of parents to support more directly their children’s learning. Working with SchoolPost will help us to give parents a one-stop shop for all their school interactions.
The SchoolPost founders, James and Andrew, will lead the business as part of the Firefly team, and I’m really looking forward to working with them. James said “it’s been an amazing journey growing SchoolPost so far, and we believe that combining forces with a larger organisation with a shared vision and values will help us to continue to build on this. We’re confident that Firefly will be a great long-term home.”
The SchoolPost team will continue to develop and support their standalone product just as they do today, but with the backing and resources of the wider Firefly team to help accelerate their plans. Of course, both SchoolPost and Firefly will continue to integrate and cooperate closely with all our other partners too.
We’re also hard at work on integrating SchoolPost more closely as a key part of our new parent portal, and we’re looking forward to sharing more details soon. Meanwhile, you can find out more about SchoolPost – or if you have any questions, comments or ideas, we’d love to hear from you.
