The 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 6 years now and in that time have gained invaluable experience that we pass on to every school that joins us along the way.

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.

MIGHT A VISIT TO SCHOOL HELP?

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.

Questions raised by Heads 

Blippit Social Parent Surveys
In January 2016 we decided it was time to share some videos of the most common things we get asked by Head Teachers just to help people get to grips with what could be called 'the basics'.

Videos are FREE and available online instantly in three formats. Interactive iBook for iOS Apple devices, YouTube or school filter-friendly video format.
