LVS Hassocks and LVS Oxford in Begbroke Oxfordshire - both specialist schools for young students with asperger’s and autism - have adopted My School Portal to enhance communication between staff and parents.

My School Portal is an online parent-school portal that offers parents secure, 24-hour access to personalised data for their children

Through an intuitive, simple to use dashboard, parents have instant access to emails, timetables, reports, events/visits and lots more, all accessible from a smartphone, tablet or desktop device.

Paula Smith, marketing manager at LVS Hassocks and LVS Oxford, said: “Providing parents with regular feedback on their children is of prime importance within SEN schools.

“With an easily accessible record of communication, we can report and work more closely with parents, particularly to ensure greater consistency between a child’s school and home life.

“My School Portal have also been really great to work with throughout. They fully understand the needs of the education sector and parental expectations, working closely with us to develop a complete solution.

“Now we have one Portal that facilitates clear channels of communication between parents and the school, and helpfully reducing valuable administration time for our staff in the process. “

Adrian Brown, Director of My School Portal, said: “Being able to give parents personalised data is a key area of development for schools and particularly important in schools such as LVS Hassocks and LVS Oxford who have students with individual and diverse learning communication and socialisation needs.”
