The School Updates app is compatible with schools that subscribe to the School Jotter 2 platform. It is designed to keep parents up to date on the latest news from their child's school.
Simply search by postcode for your child’s school, and then start receiving news and updates to your phone or tablet whenever the school updates their School Jotter website!

Ratings and Reviews
Previous reviews have stated that the app doesn't work- the school has to register and will notify you if they are using the system.
I like this app and my son's school uses it a lot but it's a shame that there are no notifications when using an iPhone. If I forget to check for a week I can miss two or three messages.
Fine if your school supports it...
This works fine for one sons school (they use the website software, clearly indicated in the app description), and not for the other sons school (who use something else for website). Check your child's school is supporting it before you download is my advice.
Right Postcode needed
You have to put in the school postcode and they have to subscribe to the updates too. It won't work with your own postcode or if the school doesn't subscribe.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
