New MyEd App

Ref: MW/PT

15 March 2018

Dear Parent/Carer

I am pleased to announce that we are launching a new 'app' on Tuesday 17 April 2018.

The app will enable you to access certain information about the academy and will give you easy access to news items; letters; the photo gallery and the creative gallery, for example.

It also includes a message service, which will make it much easier for us to let you know about events and important news items, on a more regular basis.

In addition, you will be able to access certain information about your own children - this is, of course, unique to your own account. For example, initially, you will be able to see your children's up-to-date attendance. Throughout the year, we hope to expand this section to give you more access to information about your children.

Please note, the app is free. It is easy to set up and use. There is a flyer attached, but I have included some basic instructions below to help you:

  • Go to your app store on your phone.
  • Search for 'My Ed' and then download the app.
  • You will be asked to select a school, where you put Theddlethorpe Academy.
  • You will also be asked to provide your mobile number and an email address - please note, to give you proper access, your mobile phone number must be the number that we hold on our computer system. If it isn't, it will not work. If this is the case, please let us know your new number and we will update our system which will mean you can access the app (see reply slip).
  • Once you have entered these details, you will be sent an activation code to your phone - which you will then have to enter into the app - this is for your own security.
  • Please note, you will be able to access most of the app straight away. However, it will take 24 hours for you to access unique details, for example, attendance.
  • Once you are in, you will be able to explore the various tabs - as mentioned, we will add to these throughout the year, but we wanted to get the system up and running.

Ideally, we would like all parents, who have access to apps, to be using this system. That way, you will all have any updated information as soon as we send it through.

It is a new system and we would really appreciate any feedback or comments.

I would be grateful if everyone could complete the slip below and return it to us by Wednesday 21 March 2018.

Yours sincerely

M White
Principal
