School Communications

Involving parents and guardians in your vibrant school life is pivotal to creating a positive two-way communication channel. Using CBUK’s communications module, you’re able to use email, text, and our mobile application to flexibly contact parents for a variety of means. We are also able to integrate alerts from your other systems into our app, giving you a bespoke package. This allows for parents to access all content ‘under one roof’, saving them the hassle of having to navigate multiple apps. Key features:

  • Targeting – Send messages either to individuals, or to groups such as the whole school, house groups, individual groups, years, or classes.
  • Rapid responses – Send immediate alerts in different formats to parents in case of school closures or urgent information.
  • Stress urgency – Choose the message type depending on urgency and importance.
  • Save money – App notifications and emails are free to send, saving money on expensive SMS messaging.
  • Flexibility – Messages can be sent by staff members during school trips or on split sites
  • Compliance – Fully GDPR compliant and messages are also stored in the message archive centre.
  • Tailored your recipients – Personalise messages and drill down to only those parents who need to receive a particular communication, like those on a school club.
  • Apps – Our mobile apps are available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Data Integration

Most schools allow third-party companies to access their MIS data to provide applications such as parental engagement or homework software. Commonly, CBUK’s Groupcall Xporter is used to achieve this. The system is installed in over 20,000 schools to transfer data safely, securely, and uniformly.

  • Solution of choice – Xporter reduces the burden on your school’s administration and makes third-party applications quicker to implement and improves data accuracy.
  • Safe and secure – we securely transfer millions of pieces of data every day, so naturally, we take security very seriously. As an ISO-27001 and ISO-9001 accredited company we adhere to strict rules in how we manage our platforms, so your data is never at risk.
  • Reliable support – If you need extra support, we’re always here for you. After our experienced team have installed Xporter, we’ll provide comprehensive training and round-the-clock support.
  • Tried, tested, and trusted – Using the latest cloud technologies, Xporter On Demand provides a secure interface to your MIS system for our trusted partners to access. This does however require explicit permission to do so.
  • GDPR compliance – With Xporter On Demand’s consent process, where you provide consent to each partner for only the data they need, the platform is already compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation.
  • Adaptive – Groupcall Xporter supports all major Management Information Systems (MIS). It doesn’t matter what management information system you have, Xporter On Demand supports all major UK school MIS systems and we work tirelessly to keep the support up to date!
