Blippit Social Group Engagement
As your school develops there are some very effective ways of getting more teachers involved for deeper engagement with parents in the medium to long term.

As part of our social strategy (Blippit Social & School) we'll work with you to use Groups in new and exciting ways supported by our training as standard.

A complete school social media parental engagement service

This BBC Breakfast interview featured Blippit Director John Bidder being interviewed about a story involving a primary school, social media and parental communication.  We have been working directly with what we call 'Social Schools' for 8 years now and in that time have gained invaluable experience that we pass on to every school that joins us along the way.

Head Teachers say that reaching parents and engaging with them is a real challenge and top priority.   It’s our experience that schools have to be where the parents are in order to reach them.  Blippit Social Reports are sent to you each month covering all social school activity every month in an easy to follow data-rich graphical report.  It’s the smart way to optimise your social efforts as a school.

 "Our [Ofsted] report actually refers directly to parent's use of the school's Facebook (although they say internet) page to keep up to date with immediate news about their children's learning. The team saw the page in action during the inspection and were very impressed with it's use and impact, so thanks for contributing to our positive outcome!" Head Teacher, Nicky Patrick, formerly Burnham-on-Crouch Primary School, Essex. 2014.
