Check out what our schools have to say…
“Skool Loop is the best app. We encourage our parents to use this and send in their absences. I am finding that parents who were hard to contact are using this app which makes my job so much easier. Our school newsletter is uploaded and I have learned how to put up notices. This is something that parents read because like us, their phones are nearly always in their hands.”
“Our families and school use the app with ease 🙂
“Communicating on Skool Loop is MUCH easier and quicker for both our parents and school staff compared to traditional ways like calling or email. It’s great to know our messages and newsletters go straight to parents’ screens rather than to email as it facilitates instant communication. Our goal now is to get all our parents onto the app.
Additionally, we like Skool Loops features, they make it really easy for us to manage our admin. For example, using the permissions function saves both us and parents time, no more bits of paper that can get lost and a much quicker return! The customer service team is also great. They help out with any questions/issues and always reply very quickly to my queries! So, all in all Skool Loop is a great app and it’s amazing that it is free!!”
“The immediateness and ease of getting information to our parents on School Loop is great! Our parents have embraced the Skool Loop app and I encourage them to download it. I have both parents and staff who ‘saw it on the School Loop app’ or who ask to ‘put it on Skool Loop’.
Also, I like the new features being added periodically like the school newsletter and school interview features, and Skool Loop’s help service is AMAZING! There has never been a moment when there hasn’t been someone available and happy to help with whatever I am trying to do/achieve. “
“The majority of our parents are now on Skool Loop, and most tell us it is user friendly, allows for quick communications and is a positive addition to our school. Our staff also like it saying they find it easy to use and an extremely effective way to send messages out to parents, even better than emailing or Facebook! Specifically, they love the absence notification feature which makes it easy for them and parents to communicate absences as well as the newsletter feature.”
“I love using Skool Loop! We now have all our parents on Skool Loop and it is the go-to place for everything. Parent/Teacher meetings, notices, excursion notes and more all go on Skool Loop. Both parents and teachers like being able to easily access everything all in one place, the Skool Loop app. Also, we have quite a few grandparents who enjoy being able to access the school newsletter through Skool Loop, it is super convenient.
I find the Skool Loop team very helpful when I have added feedback and features. I suggested a ‘copy option’ when setting up permission notes, and this is now included as a feature, fantastic! I always get a quick response from Skool Loop’s help team when I ask for help with anything.
Also, I love the fact that we can make suggestions for ads, and that they are locally based as well, and certainly not too conspicuous which was one of my initial worries.”
“Our parents have been quick to download and utilise the Skool Loop app. It has provided an easy way for them to be able to keep up with communications and also send through information to us such as absences/lateness and permissions. “Fast and easy way to ensure I’ve let the kura know my tamaiti will be away”. As an administrator this has put a relief on us having to chase up absence reasons. Parents are utilising this app and it has ensured we are able to update both kaiako and the ministry where our tamariki are.
Absences is the best feature for us
Skool loop team are constantly checking in with us to see if anything further is needed and always letting us know what updates are available. The communication within the team is awesome and we appreciate all the help.”
“Skool Loop is amazing! I now couldn’t imagine running my school without it!”
We love Skool Loop!
It is an immeasurably useful tool for our small school. It has been even more so during these covid times when parents have not been allowed onsite. It is very easy to use, for both admin and parents. Also the Skool Loop staff are just beautiful and are always available to help. All emails are attended to promptly and in a kind and friendly way. Yes we love Skool Loop and will continue to use it. It has made my role as Admin Manager so much easier.
“The Skool Loop app is fantastic. Straightforward and easy to use, both by staff and by parents. The team are amazing – always working away behind the scenes so efficiently and helpfully. We appreciate that the app is funded by local business – this frees up budget to spend in other areas of the school.”
“You guys are the best and I love using the Skool Loop App to get information out to our community. Thanks for all that you do for us.”
“It’s a great app and we are excited to get it up and running. I just want to say your delivery of the instructions and step through process is wonderful. You are clear and take it slow and don’t bombard us with too much info. I really appreciate it. Thank you!”
“Thanks for the effort behind the scenes. Just this morning I was praising your efforts as I chatted with our PLD advisor when she asked about our translating of notices to our school community. I was able to share just how easy you have made that process. Needless to say, she was impressed by the immediacy of the translation.”
“We have only been live on the app for about a week & half. We decided to use the a app to try to engage easier with our families in this digital age. At this stage the app usage is mostly notices & the parents have used it quite a lot to report absences, which is great! I can’t praise Skool Loop highly enough for the ease in set up & the reliable communication that we have received here at Blackett Public School. Thank you for making the process so easy & user friendly.”
“We used the interview booking for our interviews a couple of weeks ago for the first time and it cut down my time organising and changing appointment times etc hugely! Plus we actually had a higher booking and turn up rate than we have had for a few years now.”
“The app was a crucial tool that helped us to communicate with parents during lockdown and home schooling periods. We particularly found the ‘check in’ function of the app helpful. It made contact tracing post lockdown periods so simple, all of our visitors and families commented on how easy that feature is to use.”
“I love the Skool Loop app, staff always quick to upload what I request, and our parents are happy with the communication!”
“We love using our Skool Loop app and especially now while students are learning from home.”
“Our school community has embraced the use of the Skool Loop App. Our teachers are loving the easy to use digital Permission Slips and Absences. Skool Loop has helped immensely in our goal to reduce paper usage within our school.”
“The Skool Loop team are amazing – so friendly and everything is actioned so quickly.”
