ALADDIN CONNECT

Aladdin Connect is the main platform of communication used by the school. It is a multifunctional app; Once you download it, you can report your child’s absences, view reports and test results, provide permission for tours, order tracksuits, crests / ties and pay bills. It is an incredibly useful tool and easy to use as you can send information directly to the class teacher and the class SNA and report any lateness pertaining to appointments and more. From a school’s perspective, it was introduced as a more efficient and effective method of communication between the school, families and our  classes. If any parent or guardian is yet to access Aladdin or is unsure of it's workings please don't hesitate to contact the admin office.
