Last term, Newent Community School & Sixth Form Centre introduced Milk Student Planner System. We asked Ann Price, Business Manager, about the school’s experience.
What’s been the overall feedback from Milk users?
Staff have been predominantly positive. Students have been happy. 79% of parents have said that MILK has been a positive way forward and 74% have said it makes it easier to understand the homework – we recently did a survey.
Have you been satisfied with Milk’s customer support?
Absolutely satisfied. The responses are clear and very swift.
Would you recommend Milk to other schools?
Yes, and I have. Milk is a simple, clear and totally effective system for managing homework and sending communication home. The implementation was well managed and supported. The support function is second to none with every question answered quickly and completely. I would recommend the system 100%.
Other studies in the past have shown Milk can improve student lateness by 87% and homework submission by 44%.
There’s also net financial savings on offer in the region of £8500 a year on paper planners, texting services and photocopying if using Milk’s messaging features and file uploads.
