School App

Portfield Academy Mobile App

The app is designed to keep you well informed about your child's education and life in general at school, and to help cut down on paper and ink consumption.  We will post school news, events, curriculum information and more on the app and will also use it to send important messages and event information. Trip and parent evening forms will also be available to complete on the app.

So whether you are out and about with your phone or at home with access to a tablet you will always have a quick and convenient way to find key information or simply browse. Do let us know what other information and features we should add to the app.

Key Tips

1.  Start by visiting the Settings page (see right, reached via 'More' tile on Home page) and turn on the year groups you are interested in.  The app will then alert you to relevant messages in these categories. 

Please leave the Urgent alerts category turned on.  This is for messages from the school to everyone about urgent matters.

2. The Alerts tile contains a record of the alert messages you have been sent by the school.  The circular counter on the app shows how many Unread messages you have.

3. It is a good idea to close the app when not in use.  This allows content to refresh and you will not miss anything urgent since alert messages will pop up on your phone even when the app is off.
