Our School Uses Aladdin Connect to help parents stay informed and connected with the school.
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 details of your child’s attendance, test results, report cards etc via secure login from your internet browser or Aladdin Connect App, which can be downloaded to your phone for free.
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
- Allowing schools to gather and efficiently select preferred slots for parent teacher meetings
- Allowing schools to gather permission(s) from parents
- Keeping parents apprised of their child’s attendance
- Keeping parents up to date on school and classroom news via notice board messages
- Allowing parents the option to opt in to share contact information with their child’s classmates’ parents via the parent privacy option for class lists.
- Allowing parents to view their child’s latest standardised test results
Along with strengthening our home/school partnership, we also envisage Aladdin Connect helping the school by:
- Helping to improve attendance by allowing parents to keep track of any schooldays 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 cost 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 protected in strict compliance with Irish and European data protection laws.
In order to use the school app, you will need to contact the school office. We will then send out a text/email message containing your registration link. There will be one link per parent which will allow the parent to access information for all their children in the school from one user account. Please do not forward text/emails or share this link as this is unique registration code for each parent for your child/children in the school. During registration you will choose a password that will be used in conjunction with your email address to securely access the Aladdin Connect going forward. The Aladdin Connect app is free and the main advantage of downloading this app onto your phone is receiving immediate alerts in the form of app messages/notifications from your child’s school.
**By default both parents will have access to view their child’s contact information. If for any reason you DO NOT wish to share your own personal contact information within the family circle or if you have any concerns regarding your particular family setup please contact the school office in confidence to discuss or have this facility restricted.
