SVPS was recently connected to the Messageyou service, which allows us to send text messages to numbers in the schools database. This can be particularly useful for instant whole school communications in the event of emergencies, or to give out urgent information. We can also target groups of parents based on classes, committees or other specific needs. The message service can also be used to for attendance purposes.

In the next few days, you should receive a test message, if your mobile number is correct in our system. You will be given the opportunity to respond to the message to confirm your number or to opt out. Please contact the front office if you believe your number needs updating.

This service will add to the existing communications- the fortnightly newsletter, and the school’s website.
