OUR MISSION IS TO GET SCHOOLS TELLING THEIR OWN STORIES
Our services aim to improve the effectiveness of a school’s communications with their parents and the local community.
We believe that a school communications plan is its lifeblood.
At FLS, we recognise the time and effort required by school leaders and teachers to communicate with parents and the wider community. Its importance is second only to the teaching and learning of students. Thanks to digital technologies, school use a wide variety of platforms, SaaS (Software as a Service) and Educational Apps.
According to leading experts on digital communications, the internet has created an information tidal wave! This means that school communications now exist in the complex relationship between physical and ‘digital ecosystems‘.
- Furthermore, the busyness of school environments works against school leaders to effectively communicate the expert way their staff meet and over challenges every day.
- As a result, few schools show they have grown the capacity to embed digital communications to maximise staff well-being or the coherence of the school community.
- Sadly, school communications strategies rarely go deep enough into the school’s vision and learning principles for parents and the wider community to build an understanding of the great work occurring in schools.
Get Started Projects
We’ve designed projects to bring the right people together and get started on dealing with an immediate school communications strategic need.
Auditing & Reviewing Projects
We conduct an expert analysis of current school communication plans and strategies to maximise their strengths as well as how to fill the gaps.
Curriculum Writer In Residence
We help educators embed professional ways of writing articles, reports, ebooks, blogs and website content into their roles. We apply SEO and self-publishing knowledge to all our work.
For Teaching Teams
We love working hands-on in classrooms to embed digital communications strategies into teaching and learning. While we are familiar with most education apps, our real focus is on communicating pedagogical strategies.
For Leadership Teams
We energise leadership teams to achieve a holistic integration of school strategic plans with their school communications.
Educational Content Strategy & Marketing
Our work is strongly focused on pedagogy. We work with schools to apply content strategy and digital marketing and user experience (UX) knowledge to school communications.
