Our primary communication method is e-mail. Please help us to ensure you receive all communications by letting us know if you change your e-mail address by emailing

We use a system called My Ed to send you e-mail and text messages. If you download the My Ed App, you can also receive notifications of communications via this method. The My Ed app is available for both Apple iOS and Android devices and can be found using the links below:

  • Step 1 – Go to your App Store
  • Step 2 – Search for My Ed
  • Step 3 – Download the Free app

Once the parent/carer has installed and opened the My Ed, they should allow the request for notification and then search for your school name and then complete the fields presented(Name, Mobile number and Email address) and tap the Link Account link. A security code will be sent to the mobile number given. This security code should be input in the relevant field on the App and the Create Account link should be tapped. After a short period of time the parent/carer will then be able to see and access the public – facing buttons on your App. Overnight, PS Engage will check that the mobile number given by the parent/carer matches the number attributed to a P1 in your MIS system, if this number is correct the parent/carer will be able to see the relevant child(ren) on the My Students button on the App. If this number does not match and/or is not attributed to a P1 in your MIS then the parent/carer will not have access to this area.

Apple IOS App:

Google Android App

My Ed App – How the My Ed App deals with multiple students for the same parent/carer:

If a parent/carer has more than one child in school and the parent/carer taps the My Students button, the names of all of the children, that they are responsible for, will be listed. The parent/carer taps on the name of the relevant child and My Ed will show the details pertaining to this child.

Not got a Smart Phone? If your phone is unable to download Apps, please do not worry, you will still receive communications via email.
