We are proud to announce that we now have an official Oak Grove College app, available on the Apple App Store for iOS devices, and Google Play for Android devices. To download the app, search for ‘Oak Grove College’ on the app store(s) (if searching on an iPad, please make sure that the ‘iPhone only’ option is selected on the top-left menu of the App Store app). We are running a trial of the app over the next 3-4 months and would welcome your feedback regarding its use.
From the app, we will be pushing out all the latest news from the school, videos from school events, images, and also child-specific news that only you as the parent of the child can see (effectively building a ‘portfolio’ of the child’s work). Absences can be notified through the app, you can add multiple children if you have more than one child at the school, and you can also register up to 5 other devices as ‘sub-parents’ (e.g. grandparents) if you wish to view your child on more than one device.
In order to use the app, you must first register your mobile against the service, and then authenticate your child against the app. It is quite self-explanatory when performing the task for the first time, but a video demonstration of the process is available (see link below).
You should have received a letter with a unique code on it which you need to logon. If you have not received this please contact the school.
