Our school uses ParentMail X (PMX) to communicate electronically with parents via email (and sometimes via text). This service is invaluable as it allows us to send reminders and letters regarding important events. We also use PMX for on-line payments to enable you to pay for educational visits, clubs, PTA events etc.
We will use the email address you provided on your admission form as the main parentmail contact address. If you would like other email addresses added (for example if both parents want to receive all emails) please contact the school office.
The benefits to this are that we have more Apps to use, meaning we can use PMX to send home Parents’ Evening bookings, absence reporting and on-line surveys/questionnaires.
For parents, this latest version of PMX means you can easily pick up school messages on your smartphone by downloading the free PMX App on Android or iOS. Other benefits include:
- Access to PMX even when there’s no network connection.
- No need to search through your busy personal inbox for school messages.
- Instant access – no need to login to complete forms or read messages.
- In app ‘notifications’ help make sure things don’t get missed or forgotten.
- Helps preserve your data allowance.
To start using parentmail X you will need to verify your account by following the instructions provided below. If you have both a mobile number and an email address registered on your account, you will receive a registration invitation by text or email. You can register either way – but will only need to register once.
Please click on the link from the text message and follow the verification process. You will be asked to enter some details, answer a security question to verify who you are and to set a password for your account.
Please click on the link from the email and follow the verification process. As above, you will be asked to enter some details, answer a security question to verify who you are and to set a password for your account.
