The Ministry of Education has launched a new mobile app called Parents Gateway which aims to improve communication between parents and schools.
For example, parents will no longer have to fill in consent forms by hand when students take part in field trips or learning journeys. They can use the app instead.
Schools will be able to use the app to send parents updates on programmes and activities.
Minister for Education Mr Ong Ye Kung told reporters: “There is a lot of potential. We can look at other uses for parents, for example travel declaration and checking of Edusave balance.”
Parents can log in using their SingPass accounts, SMS 2FA or OneKey Token. The app is available on iOS and Android.
