Why use MySchool school management software to run your school? Let's take a look from a few different stakeholder perspectives and show you how MySchool can be the glue that helps binds the school community.

School Administrators

Communication through MySchool is powerful.

It's as simple as selecting a class, year or the entire school and clicking 'send' to deliver emails, questionnaires and SMS messages. You can also create custom groups of parents, staff, teachers and students in just a few clicks.

Instant access to a centralised data repository for students, parents and staff information. No more searching through files or making calls to find out where students are, if they are present or absent, what class a teacher is giving or searching for parents contact details. With very little training, MySchool is user friendly giving you unprecedented control over the administration of your school.

Since everyone comes to you for help, you need reliable support and we've got your back. Our support staff are always there to help with any questions or issues you have using MySchool.

IT staff

Like all SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions, MySchool is an infrastructure dream. A modern browser and internet connection is all you need. We take care of training and support leaving you with fewer tickets, fewer systems to manage and ultimately far fewer headaches to deal with. Budgeting is simple! No hardware, software or upgrade surprises to factor in and fight for. We even do all your back ups for you.

Responsibility for security rests with the IT department but few people recognise how much work is involved ensuring school data is kept safe. Our security system allows you to set up groups of people in MySchool to give you ultimate control over who can access the system, which part of the system they can use and what data they can see. MySchool conforms to the world's most recognised security standard, ISO27001. We have your back when it comes to keep your school data secure.

Head of School

With so many separate school functions that must work together in harmony, you have your work cut out to make everything work in harmony. We can't solve all your problems but we can give you one powerful system together with exceptional support to help bring your entire staff and organisation of your school together in one integrated student information management system.

Reduce the strain on your IT staff, allow teachers to take attendance, prepare grade reports and set assignments easily. Keep parents informed without breaking a sweat and give students access to their assignments and grades as soon as they are available. Save your bursar weeks of stress with simple, instant invoicing and let your administrators oversee and manage the whole school with less fuss. 

Annual budgeting is simple. No hefty set up, roll over or one-off administrative fees, no additional support fees or hidden upgrade costs. We have one simple price per student and that's it and your head of IT won't be requesting additional hardware or staff to manage new servers or data back ups. Save investment in multiple software solutions and the individual inefficiencies and overheads that come with running so many separate systems.

With one single powerful system, we can help you eliminate printing and paper costs and reduce meetings with MySchool's efficient communication tools. Assignments, attendance, timetabling, donation management and reporting is all available instantly, online.

Peace of mind

MySchool is compliant with the world's most trusted security standard, ISO 27001.  Your student, parent and staff data are safe with MySchool. Our quality management certification ISO9001 means you know we run a tight ship and maintain high standards in both the service we offer and the way we manage our business.

Bursars

Invoicing has always been a time consuming task. MySchool has turned what is often days of work into a 5 minute task. You can set up specific rules to calculate fees, prepare invoices for extras, outings or stationary. You can issue invoices, receipts and credit notes and track outstanding balances. Do you already run an accounting system? Myschool lets you export all your data ready to upload to your existing system.

Teachers

Reduce the time you spend on admin and free yourself to do what you do best, teach.  MySchool puts ALL your admin duties in one easily accessible place. No printing or photocopying and no paper sheets to fill in and file. Find free rooms and book them without making a call.

Get a quick overview of your courses, students and their guardians and then drill down to detailed information on grades, assignments, timetables or contact details. Attendance taking is quick and simple and filing disciplinary reports can be done directly in the system (though you can still print them). 

Set home work and assignments and easily view those assignments for the whole term in one single view.  Store and share any digital material in MySchool with your students for them to instantly access and use in their assignments, class or generally. 

Complete and submit grade reports quickly and easily. Create and manage your own pre-saved comment templates to speed up the grade report process.

Students

Cut down on note taking and having to remember everything; it's all in MySchool. Your class timetable, school announcements, assignments grades are right there. 

Find out when assignments and homework are due and download any supporting material and notes to help complete your work. Check up on your attendance record and get instant access to your current and past grades.

Parents

Never miss a school event, teacher/parent meeting and receive your chidren's grade report as soon as they are published or find out what homework they have. Keep in constant touch with school and see exactly what classes your children are in or who their teachers are. Sign permission slips or complete school questionnaires all online. MySchool brings parents, students and staff together like never before.
