As part of our ongoing commitment and priority to improve school-to-home communications, over the last few months, we at Hastings School have been working with our colleagues in the Cognita team to transform the way we communicate with our community.
With the start of February, we have launched Cognita Connect, our secure app and web-based parent portal. It will give parents 24-hour access to personalised news and information in relation to their child(ren)’s school life and activities via their mobile, tablet or desktop device.

- Single point of interaction for schools and parents
- An intuitive tool with a user-friendly interface to offer an improved parent experience
- Information available 24/7
- Personalised communication

We are very excited with this new development as we are sure this will help streamline our home-school communication.
