School Attendance Tracking Software
Effective attendance tracking
Teachers have been taking the register for hundreds of years, but in a 21st century school, attendance tracking needs to be more than a tick or a cross on a piece of paper.
ReachMoreParents is a unique form of software for tracking attendance which not only reduces the administrative burden on school staff – it allows them to easily manage authorisation, send alerts and connect with those parents who are hardest to reach. Ultimately, it works to support the key aim of reducing truancy.
More than a register
The benefits of attendance tracking software
It’s proven that attendance is intrinsically linked to a student’s academic achievements and their success in later life – so absence tracking is vital to any school. That’s why the right attendance tracking system delivers a host of benefits that represent much more than a register.
A reduction in truancy
Greater student support
Truancy happens for a number of different reasons, and could be a result of serious issues like bullying, mental health issues or problems at home. So as well as identifying truants, schools can use absence information to establish why students might be missing lessons - and provide support or initiatives to help keep them in class.
More engaged parents
Our student attendance tracker makes it easier for parents to report any authorised absences – strengthening partnerships with already engaged parents, and facilitating communication with those who are hardest to reach.
A stronger understanding of attendance issues
Schools can use data gathered on the attendance app to pinpoint patterns in attendance and combat this with wider education, initiatives or incentives.
Increase parental engagement
Engagement through attendance tracking
Combatting student absence is all about creating a strong partnership between schools and parents, so we’ve developed ReachMoreParents: time and attendance software that makes reporting and management simple for everyone. Using innovative technology designed by experienced education professionals, we help schools to not just manage their attendance, but connect with those parents that other systems can’t reach.
- Easier absence reporting
Parents can inform schools about all absences direct from the dashboard homepage – and easily upload any related documents (such as appointment confirmation) by photo or screenshot. There’s no need to wait on hold, deal with attachments or rely on students to pass on important information.
- Instant access to attendance records
A child’s attendance figures can be checked at any point, right down to the individual lesson. This means parents will clearly see how much school they’ve missed in a month, term or year to really keep on top of absence tracking – and work to tackle truancy in specific lessons before it develops into more of a problem.
- Tailored contact preferences
Parents are also able to choose whether they’d prefer to be contacted by app, email, text or phone – which helps to strengthen parent engagement.
- Branded to build trust
ReachMoreParents is built bespoke to every school, incorporating their individual branding and featuring a dedicated social-style newsfeed of photo and video updates. This works to create a trusted environment and really engage parents with school life.
Supporting schools and staff
- The digital hub for registers
All attendance information is held in one accessible place, with pre-authorised absences noted and identified.
- The information you need from parents
App templates prompt parents to provide the details you need when they report their absence and you can instantly notify them if any information is missing.
- A more streamlined admin process
Each day’s absences are recorded and stored in one place, with codes assigned to each individual case. This creates absolutely clarity for all staff involved and makes job shares much easier.
- Instant automation
The platform creates groups and lists of unauthorised absences and can send out automated app, email or text notifications to parents as soon as this is recorded.
- Money-saving contact preferences
Contact parents by the app itself, email, text or all three if needed, so money is only spent on text messages when it’s absolutely necessary.
All these features are included as standard with ReachMoreParents, so every school has the same access to the benefits of this software for tracking attendance.
