"Trust between a school and parents has always been a big deal. But, during the pandemic, we've never seen the value of engagement realised so fully on Facebook by our schools than now. Extraordinary times."
John Bidder, founder, Blippit. (Nov, 2020)

videos & Headteacher interview
Some Head Teachers find these videos useful to watch as they give a unique insight into social media use in schools. This Guardian article we wrote has some tips & ideas for any school considering the best ways to use social media.

A complete school social media parental engagement service

This BBC Breakfast interview (2014) featured Blippit founder John Bidder being interviewed about a story involving a primary school, social media and parental communication. We have an archive of videos that you may find helpful too from 2016. We have been working directly with what we call 'Social Schools' for 10 years now and in that time have gained invaluable experience that we pass on to every school that joins us along the way.

We provide peace of mind, monitoring, training, year-round Support, inspiration & good practice, a monthly report on your school engagement & a fully managed social survey service delivered through your Facebook page and/or website as part of the work we do.

You’re never alone with Blippit Social.  We support your school proactively, in the background and on demand when you’re busy doing the day job.

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.

Blippit Social set up, secure, monitor, train, support and reports on your school.

You’re never alone with Blippit Social.  We support your school proactively, in the background and on demand when you’re busy doing the day job.  Because our roots are in school we know exactly how busy you and your team are.
