Getting your school on board with Fetching is really easy and helps us to help you. It’s not about doing the leg work for us, and more about unlocking Fetching’s full potential, and we’ve made it easier than ever to be able to do this through the app.
How to do it
Inviting your school to the Fetching app is incredibly simple. Click the + icon on the centre of the app. Select Invite your school to unlock this feature. If you can’t see this, it means your amazing school is already on board.
You will then be on the "Request school" page. From there you can enter the name of your school and their email - the email address should be the one that you use to communicate changes to collection arrangements.
There you have it, it takes 20 seconds and couldn’t be easier! What benefit does having your school using Fetching have for you, your child and their school? Great question!
As you may have heard from us before (many times) the list of benefits for a Fetching user with their school on board is huge! Here are just some of the reasons why having your school using Fetching makes your life (and your school’s life), a whole lot easier.
Everything in one place
What we mean by this is instead of you having a place to arrange the school run and the school having their own place to store school run information, both parties use the same platform. This means that both parents and the school are in sync with one another at all times.
The ONLY fully integrated school run app
One thing we’re incredibly proud of is the fact that we’re the only UK school run app that offers a service with full integration. Meaning that our ‘everything in one place’ offer is one of a kind.
Child’s safety is of paramount importance to us at Fetching. This is why we ensured our platform would be fully secure when it came to the children that it will be used to help. We have a secure ID registration process that all users must do in order to use our app. This ensures the school and the parent that everyone using the app is who they say they are.
Unlocking Fetching’s full potential
It goes without saying that having your school on board with Fetching unlocks the app’s full potential, with school runs, drop-offs and playdates being easier than ever to arrange without the extra faff of contacting the school directly or awkwardly asking other parents. The app is built by parents, in collaboration with schools to ensure that it is exactly what both groups need.
Our goal is that no child is left behind and that parents can work together to solve the challenge of after-school childcare. With your help to get your school using Fetching, we’re confident we can change the school run, one Fetch at a time.
