SCO Parental alerts: free functionality for parents

We set up SCO parental alerts to minimise the calls to school admin teams.

We set up the SCO parental alerts to minimise the calls to your busy admin team. Have your parents ever asked:

  • Can you let me know when my child’s dinner balance gets low? *
  • Can you remind me when there’s something new I need to pay for online?
  • Can you remind me to book an appointment for Parents’ Evening? **

SCO Parental Alerts

It’s free – this functionality is supplied as part of your existing package, there’s no additional charge.

The Parental Alerts licence is automatically added to the parents’ SCOPAY account. This allows parents to have full control to receive reminder messages for a variety of situations without any cost to the school.

Parents can select which alerts they wish to receive by email through settings on the SCOPAY website.

Quick reference guide to Parental Alerts

To help you, we have created this guide to Parental Alerts guide, aimed at parents. You can also find this via the Documentation link in SCO.
