New Hansfield ETNS School App

Our school is excited to announce that we will shortly be rolling out Aladdin Schools Connect App to parents/guardians of children in our classes.

Initially, it will be launched to facilitate receipt of end of year reports but soon it will be expanded to enhance our communication with you, our parents, and to enable to you stay connected and informed about your child’s education.

The school uses the Aladdin Schools software service www.aladdin.ie for administrative purposes and Connect will give you secure access to messages from the school and to details of your child’s attendance, test results, reports cards etc via secure login from your internet browser or Aladdin Connect App

Aladdin Connect is a fantastic way to enhance a school’s communication with parents. It enables parents to stay connected and informed about their child’s education by:

  • Ensuring that the school has their most up to date contact information.
  • Keeping parents apprised of their child’s attendance and punctuality.
  • Keeping parents up to date on school and classroom news via noticeboard messages.
  • Allowing parents view their child’s approved report card.
  • Allowing parents to view their child’s latest standardised test results.
  • You will also be able to make payments to the school online.

Along with strengthening our home/school partnership, we also envisage Aladdin Connect helping the school by:

  • Helping to improve attendance and punctuality by allowing parents to keep track of any school days their child may have currently missed, along with late arrival and early leaving information.
  • Helping to reduce the amount of class/school notes being sent home.
  • Helping the school/ teachers communicate with parents when the need arises.
  • Reducing costs by eliminating the need to send school report cards by post.
  • Reducing costs by reducing the number of text messages that need to be sent.

You can rest reassured that Aladdin Schools uses state-of-the-art security to safeguard information entered by the school and data is stored and processed in strict compliance with Irish and European data protection laws.

We hope that you will enjoy using Aladdin Connect and I look forward to enhanced communication between our parent and our school. Below are some handouts to help simplify the setting up of the app when registration commences.

Thank your for your support.
