New School-Parent Communication App

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We hope that you and your families are safe and well at this time. We thank you for your continued support and cooperation during these difficult times. 

We will shortly roll out the Aladdin Schools Connect feature to parents/guardians of all pupils in the school, in order to facilitate a more efficient system of parent school communication.
The school uses the Aladdin Schools software service for administrative purposes and Aladdin Connect will give you secure access to messages from the school and to details of your child’s attendance, test results, reports cards etc via secure login from your internet browser or Aladdin Connect App.

Aladdin Connect is a fantastic way to enhance a school’s communication with parents. It enables parents to stay connected and informed about their child’s education in many ways, such as:

  • Easy to keep your contact information up to date
  • Select preferred slots for parent teacher meetings 
  • See your child’s attendance record and allow you to provide explanations through the app
  • Keep up to date on school and classroom news via noticeboard messages (these will replace the texts that we currently use)
  • Allowing you to view your child’s report card
  • Allowing you to view your child’s latest standardised test results
  • Helping the school/ teachers communicate with you when the need arises

You can rest reassured that Aladdin Schools uses state-of-the-art security to safeguard information entered by the school and data is stored and processed in strict compliance with Irish and European data protection laws.

Soon you will receive a text containing your registration link.  There will be one link per parent which will allow the parent to access information, for all their children in the school, from one user account. Please, do not forward this text as this is a unique registration code for each parent for your child/children in this school. During registration, you will choose a password that will be used in conjunction with your email address to securely access the Aladdin Connect going forward. Once you are registered, you will be sent an email with links to download the Aladdin Connect App for your mobile device. The main advantage of using the App is to receive immediate alerts for app messages sent by your school. Downloading the App is highly recommended to enhance both the parent and school’s Connect experience. When you sign in to Aladdin Connect, you will see your contact information (phone and email), family phone number, address and emergency contacts.

What you need to do now…

1. Let the school know if your phone number has changed recently.

If so, please email on/before Friday May 29th 2020 with your new current mobile phone number.

2. If there are any personal concerns, or legal provisions in place regarding giving access to Connect to any parent/guardian of your child please contact the school by email to provide details of such concerns/legal provisions.  

Please do this on/before Friday May 29th 2020 by emailing the school at and putting Aladdin Connect in the subject field of the email.

We hope that you will enjoy using Aladdin Connect and that you find it helpful and supportive with your engagement with the school.

Yours sincerely,

Muriel Wall Coughlan
