Communication Methods

eSchools provides your child’s school with various ways to communicate with parents including email, text messages, and a new mobile app which allows you to view your messages, any letters home and notifications from the school as well as your child’s attendance and current homework tasks. Please check that your contact details are correct by clicking on the cog in the top right of the screen once you have logged in. We encourage you to download the app, as messages sent to this will reduce your school’s costs. Search ‘eSchools’ to find the free app in either the Apple App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android) and use your login details above. In order to display alerts from the app on your lock screen please make sure you’ve selected the correct notification settings.

If you’re not receiving emails from the school please remember to check your spam folder before contacting the school. If you click the ‘unsubscribe’ link you will no longer receive email updates so avoid clicking this link if you would like to continue to receive email communication from the school. Do continue to check the school website regularly for newsletters and club updates.

Parents Evening Booking System

This can be used to book your parents evening appointments through eSchools. When a parent evening is upcoming you will be designated a booking window. During this time you will be able to select which available appointment you would like to book.

Whole School Letters & Newsletters
All whole school letters and newsletters will be sent home through eschools onto your parent account. If parents are not receiving or are having difficulty logging onto eSchools then please see Miss Johnston at the school office.
