The Somerset College App is developed in partnership with Digistorm Education and Alaress. It is designed to give parents, students and teachers a seamless environment with ready access to important information about events and daily activities at the School, as well as key contact details. The Somerset App provides an easy way to access personalised content and communication from the Schools online environment, Schoolbox.
The dashboard provides an overview of the latest notices, unread notices, timetables for staff and students and a timeline view of the days events.
The messages section provides notifications of activity within Schoolbox. As content is added to groups that you are a member of and follow, you will receive a notification that will allow you to click through to the relevant Schoolbox page. Push notifications can be configured and used.
The School Calendar contains details on events and key dates at the School. Click on the event to see further details and information or search for an event. The calendar can also be used as an eDiary with students having the ability to add homework tasks for completion. The calendar menu item will show how many events are in your calendar for that day.
Students and staff will see a reminder in the app to any due work and its relevant date within Schoolbox.
The notices section contains daily communication from the School to parents, students and staff. The Somerset App means you will receive the communication relevant to you.
Parents, students and staff can see a copy of their 10 day timetable with an easy to read view of the current days timetable. By clicking on the class, students and staff will be able to access the class Schoolbox page.
Call and email the school directly from Somerset App. All key contact details are listed. You can also email and notify your childs absence through the app.
Links to other frequency used online sites for parents, students and staff are provided here for easy access.
