Evidence for Learning – Family App
As a School we launched the EFL app which is a method of sharing information with parents/carers. EFL will transform how parents/carers, external stakeholders, and the learner themselves are engaged and involved in the entire learning process and journey. Not only can photos, videos and notes be easily and securely shared by the school, but parents/carers can capture and submit their own photos, videos and notes to reflect the learner’s development and experiences at home and outside in the community.
As a school we would like to support you further and enable you to access the full potential of the EFL and build up further lines of communication and share the learning journey that our young people embark on each week.
To do this we have put together a user guide to help you install the app and support you with its use.
