It’s almost time to say goodbye to sunscreen and shades, and say hello to textbooks and desks again. Whilst it’s great to enjoy the warm weather and longer days, it’s also so exciting to get back to the magic of the classroom! As the ‘back to school’ countdown gets shorter, start preparing now by reading our suggestions on a teacher’s essentials for the new school year.
Texts to Parents
Being able to send families text messages is your number one priority during the academic year. It has become essential to have a communications tool to be able to reach parents to deliver any announcements or in the event of an emergency.
With Teachers2Parents, you can easily contact parents and guardians individually or select entire groups, and you can schedule messages at your convenience. You can also choose to open communication and allow parents and guardians to respond to your texts, which helps improve relationships. T2P offers an Unlimited option, which lets you send as many text messages as you want throughout the year, without worrying about going over budget.
Sometimes text messages aren’t enough. Emails are useful for including attachments and sending more information at once, as there is no character limit. Just like on texts, you have the option to send emails to entire groups on Teachers2Parents. To speed up the process, you’re provided with many different templates that you can use or edit.
Emails are a great tool to use to save money and avoid mass printing. Share lesson plans, newsletters, posters, and leaflets – not just with parents and guardians, but also with your colleagues.
Trusting your students to deliver consent forms on paper to their parents and return them to school is not always the most reliable way to collate information from families. Digitalising your forms doesn’t only ensure you receive the information you need intact and on time, it’s also extremely versatile.
Teachers2Parents Forms provide a variety of templates for you to edit and create modern and interactive forms. Use Forms to get consent and feedback, send out surveys and questionnaires, permission slips for school activities, clubs, medical records, and more.
Watch the video below to discover the many benefits of using Forms!
The most convenient part of Teachers2Parents is having all your school processes in one place: no need to swap systems from sending an email to sending a form. Everything is available to you in one platform – even payments are an option, and they are so easy to use!
Through T2P Payments, you can collect and manage your school payments and easily create reports. Cashless Catering helps you manage school dinners and kitchen stock by allowing families to book their children’s meals in advance and top up their account from any device. They can also book and pay for school clubs and trips
, and buy school stationery and equipment through the School Shop.

Even though it’s just the beginning of the academic year, it is a good idea to start thinking about your parents’ evening, and do what you can to prepare for the event.
