Here you can find out a bit more about how eparents came to be. Eparents is built by Epraise Limited, who also provide schools with the epraise.co.uk school rewards system. If you would like to know a bit more about the history of epraise then you can check the details here.
2015 - The big launch
We officially launched eparents at the BETT Show this year. We've got loads of exciting things planned, including many innovative new features that will released to schools throughout the year.
2014 - A great idea reborn
Parent Messenger was reinvented as ‘eparents’ and the whole site was rebuilt from scratch. This added loads of new features, such as MIS and LDAP integration.
2013 - Important statistics
We continued to improve and refine Parent Messenger to help support the school in improving their parental communications. New features such as more detailed statistical overviews and easier ways to export data were added.
2012 - Research and development
Updates to the system continued to make it more practical and easy to use for parents and teachers. We focussed on allowing teachers to initiate conversations, as well as the best way to run the logistics of such a platform within school.
2011 - The original platform
Our first parent-teacher communication platform, called Parent Messenger, began to be used by parents and teachers at a secondary school in Devon.
2010 - The first ideas
The idea for building a parent-teacher communication platform came about after our Director (who was a full-time teacher at the time) experienced the problems with existing systems first hand at a school he was teaching at.
