Part of the Milk Student Planner System, our app is designed for Students and Parents. Milk is designed to enhance teaching and learning outcomes and monitor progress. Milk was designed by a teacher and offers lots of features that make teachers' lives easier. Integrates seamlessly with SIMS as well as other MIS platforms.
Unlike handwritten diaries that are frequently lost, home work-tasks and teacher feedback on Milk is never lost. All student data and relevant class listings are automatically synced to the school’s MIS, e.g. Capita SIMS. This automatic syncing feature saves teachers time and work, ensuring that they always reach the students they teach.
Schools and colleges have total control over Milk allowing every institution to “switch-off” Milk on all mobile devices during school hours to avoid class disruption from illegitimate mobile usage.
Milk uses push notifications to remind students and parents when homework is due and it provides messaging to classes, groups and individuals within every school and college.

Ratings and Reviews
It’s good but I’ve forgot my password and there’s no way to find it out again/change it. (You have to know your password to change it). Overall it’s good, it helps A LOT in the morning (I don’t have a copy of my timetable, so I use Milk). It would be nice if there were some more colour options, because to me, they’re all hideous. Apart from yellow, that’s okay...👌 A problem is that I have to go into the Milk website to look at the dashboard and check my Merit total, which is pointless because it could just be in the app. But overall it’s okay. A few problems. ;-;
(P.S: it says ‘homework’ but we don’t get homework in year 7, we get ‘BBL’ (optional homework) it would be cool if it could say that but it probably won’t because otherwise it would say that for all the other schools (I think) so really I just wasted a minute of my life)
Really useful! However I have a suggestion.
We’ve been using this app at my college for almost a year, and it’s generally really handy, it places all your messages, stats (even though out college has decided bot to set this up) and homework. With emphasis on homework it makes it ridiculously easy to keep track on every aspect of homework (if your tutors decide to actually set it on milk). However I think it’s a bit strange how a member of staff can message you but you can’t directly reply. In my case I have to email them back referencing the original message. I think improving communication between students and staff through the app would be an excellent step forward, but otherwise I’ve had a good experience.
Add an upload feature on the homework
The app is amazing we use it at my school it works really well and is really helpful but there is one issue and that is you cannot upload things on the homework section. This would be an important feature so teachers can tell students to hand in the homework online. Good places to upload things could be camera roll or google (drive,docs,slides) please consider this feature as it would make my school life whole lot easier!
