From data protection to greater inclusion
Clare Wright, the Co-Founder of Classlist, discusses the benefits that using her social network can bring to your school.
One of the joys of technology is that it takes away the burden of monotonous tasks, creating time for more life-affirming activities. For schools and PTAs, that’s where Classlist comes in. It’s a free, data protection registered platform that acts as a safe, secure, online community for parents – a ‘virtual school gate’.
‘All schools are bound by the issue of data protection,’ says John Baugh, Head of the Dragon School, a co-educational prep and pre-prep in Oxford. ‘Classlist solves the problem of parents wanting one another’s contact details. It’s very helpful.’
