Outstanding features

Specifically, Hackney eSchools includes:

  • School website
    A standard school website is provided as part of the Hackney eSchools package, and integrates seamlessly with the learning platform. The website will be designed to match the look and feel of the school and utilise your existing website address. Bespoke website development is also available for schools with more complex requirements.
  • Parental engagement and the Hackney eSchools mobile app
    Parents and carers can securely view pupil data held on their children in school through the dedicated parent centre and mobile app. This feature offers all the usual read-only MIS data options, and a secure platform for online consent forms and online payments.
  • Learning platform
    The Hackney eSchools learning platform (VLE) is packed full of features, yet intuitive and easy to use and navigate. The platform integrates seamlessly with schools’ MIS, providing automated user account and class creation, start and end-of-year processes, and daily pupil data updates.
  • Governor portal
    A dedicated Governor space provides new opportunities for secure online discussion, file sharing, group calendars and tailored full and sub-committee spaces.

Hackney eSchools is a complete solution. No need for multiple suppliers or multiple passwords, and schools can take advantage of a dedicated single point of contact for all their electronic communications needs.
