Latest News From Great Wakering Primary Academy - January 2018

Welcome to our website - we update this site daily and would welcome your feedback.                        

  • SchoolPing - our teacher/parent communication app - we still have some parents who have not downloaded the free app and are missing out on messages.  This system has been up and running since May, when emails were sent out to everyone who has one. It was only from the end of September that we stopped using our old communication system to give people time to change. Notification about the system has been in our newsletter every week since May and newsletters are available to read on our website and on this page and yet we still have parents who say they have never heard of SchoolPing. 
    Smartphones / tablets / laptops - the app can be downloaded and used anywhere, all you need is a username and password.  You can even log on via the 'Log in'  area of this page.  Please come to the school office where we will give you these details and help with any queries, thank you.
