Time and money are always in short supply in schools.
By giving your staff the tools to produce emails and newsletters in the most efficient way possible, you free up their time and release some of your budget
OFSTED look for effective communication and parental engagement.
By ensuring your school community is receiving clear, relevant and timely communications, you are delivering exactly what OFSTED require.
The email, newsletter and app modules help you to improve communications and increase parental engagement, easily.
Clear communications are essential in any school, but it can be a very time consuming process to find, collate and broadcast the necessary information to the different groups of stakeholders.
The Connect platform from e4education connects to your MIS system and also uses information you already have on your website. Meaning information does not have to be re-entered, and everything can be done in the content management system you already know and love - all time saving features
Since 2001, over 2,500 schools and 100,000's parents have trusted e4education to provide their websites and software.
The Connect platform offers the same exceptional levels of customer service, ongoing support, security and reliability which our schools have always enjoyed.
Clear, well presented communications which are delivered directly to your parents in the way they prefer will always get the highest engagement rates.
The Connect system is responsive, so adapts to tablets, mobiles and PCs. For parents without an email address, the communications can be printed out and handed to students in the traditional way.
Emails and newsletters sent through Connect look better and so work better - getting you the engagement you need, when you need it and reducing admin time
Our messaging module is simple and quick to use, and a low-cost way of improving communications with parents. It will save your school thousands of pounds by eliminating the need to print letters home. It will also reduce administration time, and gives teachers the flexibility of communicating directly with parents.
Your pupil and parent data comes directly from your school MIS system, meaning you don’t have to worry about keeping parents details up to date on two systems.
You can create templates of your urgent or commonly used emails, allowing you to resend information without having to rewrite the emails every time. Frequently sent communications can be stored and reused, time and time again.
All your emails are sent with a consistent look, using your school logo, colours and contact details. Every email looks professional and on brand.

Create beautiful newsletters, linked to your school website and email them to all of your parents in minutes. Our newsletter module is powered by your school website, pulling news, events, blogs, photo albums and more, meaning you don’t have to add the same content to multiple places. Using our drag and drop editor couldn’t be simpler, this tool really can save you time and money.
Our drag and drop editor saves hours on the newsletter design and compilation. It uses information which is already on your website, so it’s a case of select and use.
View newsletters that have been previously created, when and by whom. Clone previously created newsletters and tweak before sending.
Every newsletter you create uses the school's colours and logo, ensuring each communication is well presented, on brand and easily read
