What is Schoop?
Schoop is for Education, Business, Charities, Clubs and Community. Communication and engagement are safe with Schoop.
Our motto is:
The non-sensitive nature of communications means a lot more people in the case of a school than just the kids’ parents or guardians can be in the loop. And since messages are unlimited, it doesn't matter how many people connect.
We've heard from schools and parents that extended family and friends are often involved with school affairs particularly when both parents are working, so it makes sense for others to be connected. This could include:
# Parents and guardians of course
# Aunties and uncles
# Friends and neighbours
# Childcarers and babysitters
# Teachers and other school staff
# Church representatives
# The kids too!
So don't forget to tell others about this app!

Schoop part of our Communication and have average installs from 10000 to 50000. Last Update Jan. 14, 2016. Google play rating is 73.2394. Current verison is 6.3. Actual size 11.0 MB.
Not intuitive I can't really get to grips with the different bits of the app and struggle to find what I want
Handy but scrolling seems a bit haphazard and messages are not in order of arrival so a notification can arrive and when you check your newest message is not first to view.
It's ok but usual poor gui design I guess this is the same company as school gateway the logos are similar. The app idea is good, the colours are good. My opinion is simply the gui movements are not clear and seems amateur compared to others. Functionality is good you can get what you want but so does Windows xp if that makes sense
Good idea but has some bugs. Keeps forgetting which year group I am interested in so I don't get these alerts until I tell it again. Scrolling not great either.
Takes forever to install then it doesn't work
Frustrating Really poor scrolling. Messages are in the wrong order. Great idea which needs more development.
Early days but buggy Not used for very long but scrolling is pretty horrific so far. Thats on an LG G3 so not exactly a slow phone. Will persevere though as sounds a great idea.
Mr W Callcott Great way to be kept informed on school events and all the schools news.
Can not use it School send questionnaire but I can not access it. Pretty bad scrolling and not very straight forward app. I was hoping that parents can also send messages to school but it does not seem to be available.
keeps me in touch with the kids activities but needs a little tweaking with scrolling action
Abimbola Very helpful app i was able to navigate round the site with ease.would recommend. Keeps me updated of events going on 9n my children's school.
Xselent I Neva went to skool
Mister This is a very good app
Renata Lemanska I love this app! School news,mass. I can fine everything.
Useful app Scrolling could be improved but issues previously experienced appear to be resolved.
Great app This is a fan app
Great app.i get all news very quickly.
Calendar not working When adding an activity to calendar it dont put it on the correct date. 5 different notifications was added to same date even though they was meant to be for events over a 3 month period.
Not for android Sorry but this is still not working for android, it will not acknowledge that I have selected the year group I wish to receive alerts for. Please try and fix as this could be a very handy app Update on 30 Nov after updating Adobe Air now working. Now lost the news section, seem to have to reinstall with updates. Sorry still not great for android, cannot access newsletter despite installing update. Am going to try a complete reinstall but getting fed up of doing this
Really handy I downloaded this app after a friend recommended it to me, as my daughter just started secondary school and the school website is rubbish this app is great for updates and much needed info that a 11 year old forgets!
Just started using it, so far so good hp will b best app for schools.
A Really useful app This has been a useful app to keep me informed and updated in what is happening in my daughters school
Easy to use No more lost school letters or waste bins full of paper. Brilliant to know that I'm in control of the info I get from school!
Took a while 2 sort, got there in the end :-)
Fab Keeps me knowing what's going on !!!
Excellent app Provides prompt clear reminders. No problems found highly recommend
Needs more options Bit of a nuisance when needing to view photos and zooming in then hace to go out of app and start again!!! This app could do so much more but doesnt ..hope it gets better soon. However great that schools are using it x
I like it as it keeps me in the loop. Cannot give 5 stars as yet as I've only been using it for a week but good idea.
Great principle; ditch Adobe AIR. This app has so far been fab for direct comms from school. Well done on a very good start. That said, the app itself takes forever to load alerts because it's not native to Android. It requires that you download and install the Adobe AIR runtime app, which adds a whole extra unnecessary layer of code for the processor to have to load up and crunch before alerts become visible. this wouldn't be too bad if it zipped. but in most of my experience, it doesn't. would also wish for news and alerts in one feed.
Good idea Its a fairly good app, but if im using my tablet whèn a notification comes in it closes the app I'm using. Quite useful though
Great I love it as I always know now of important dates that I sometimes forget as I tend to lose the pieces of paper with the info on
Scoop Great app , reminds you on what's going on x
It's a good idea , but isn't updated enough. I get a text from the school & sometimes that information doesn't show up on here. Needs to be more regular with school dates as well.
No worth it: a big waste of time!! Today I rated this app a 1* - as I said before its ok if the school use it to inform us of what's happening. This morning I got my 6 year old ready for school when at 8.15am my partner comes downstairs to show me a text sent by the school at 7.40am stating it's superhero day to raise funds for the local childrens hospital so coming in fancy dress!!! I will be removing the app: if the school isn't prepared to use it (last update was February) it's not worth it!
Unstable & errors The app is unstable. When I receive a notification, I get error when opening. I then have to close & reopen app to read message.
Up to date news 100 times better than relying on messages between parents and pupils. A definite must have.
Not good at all Firstly it uses adobe air which is poorly written and makes the app run very slow. Secondly, it doesn't close when you have finished. You have to force close to get out of the app.
Messages appear in my phone notifications but when I try to access it through my app then it seems to be not there and appear later on. Otherwise a great initiative to keep you informed of the school's and your child class activities.
Good idea Useful app from what I've seen so far, but the UI isn't terribly intuitive and functionality like syncing calendar events to my phone calendar doesn't seem to be there.
Easy to use Works well
Fairly useless I have not been able to see any newsletters or alerts from my child's school. In comparison, the same app on the iPad shows them well.
Works well. Everything that's meant to be on there is on there but it's a very boring app. And newsletters are like pdf so not interesting to read at all
Push notifications don't work Don't get push notifications anymore have to open the app and manually check the alerts. Reinstalled and working now. Can you put a fix in so the next update doesn't stop the alerts
Nice app Great easy way of getting info nation from school even while working
Buggy and basic. There are better school to parent apps out there
Random Alerts when I've read everything already. Links don't open. Needs work.
Got to keep picking school and class,
Useless Never get the updates so have to reinstall
Schoop Our school has just introduced this so not sure how well it will work. But I must say the help desk at schoop has been very helpful with ironing out some problems encountered. Waiting now for school to send out notifications!! Hopefully it's going to be great!
Schoop It's a really good idea and works quite well but the interface is a bit confusing.
Great app with one major flaw! This is a really simple but good idea that's improved teacher to parent communication in my little ones school. However, it has one major flaw, clicking the notification takes you to the schools page rather than notification page! Something that is so simple to fix and would make this a 5* app. Please sort this developers!
OK I can't confirm my groups, I'm using a Samsung note 4. OK have finally been able to confirm my groups which us why I've upgraded to 3stars
Potentially brilliant The concept is superb but the experience is slightly dulled by the necessity of a few design tweeks and occasional crashes. I'm confident that it'll continue to improve.
Clunky and annoying Takes too many clicks through to open and reach whole message. Not well used or easy to understand by school office? Had repeated message errors ornate properly used. Schoop own messages are not accurate and new school year process clumsy and not user focus ed
Info there but not simple to use Calendar shows latest date at the top so you need to scroll down to see what is coming imminently. Alert notification doesn't take you to that notification only to the home page. Back key on phone closes app rather than taking you back a page to look at another message
Rubbish Can't read any of the notifications. Or change the settings. Consequently I had an alert at 5 am which I couldn't read. Bug fix needed for Samsung galaxy s5.
Useful but no brilliant Better than the school already had but it only shows the lateset notification so if you dismiss this and there is another on one you miss the older notification. If you could add support for displaying multiple notifications would be amazing
Slow and Messy Interface Does not follow android development guidelines, and performs as badly as it looks. Downgraded from 2 to 1 star as can't even access alerts anymore. Suggest a complete rewrite of app and backend services. I wish i had time over the Christmas holidays as it wouldn't take me long to write something better for my sons school.
Schoop A good idea but I either can't open notifications or I'm sent notifications from teachers I haven't selected or it crashes. Very frustrating!
Fantastic App! All parents should download Excellent way off knowing what your children and school are up to! Great form of communication, hubby & I no longer have communication problems with losing weekly letters from school! All schools should provide this free service!!
Useful Great app, can keep track of important dates, upcoming events. Only thing I find is the front page can be confusing
Shoop or skoop? It is OK but it's usefulness is limited by the enthusiasm of the administrator
Useful when it works! Great idea however notification links don't work, links don't open most of the time
Fantastic app that reminds you of event's and homework whilst on the go :)
Too unreliable Poor user interface but worse still is that it frequently hangs preventing you from reading the message. For such critical information this is unforgivable.
Schoop Keeps me informed.. No paper wasted!
Keeps me up to date Good app, recommend for parents
Great Brilliant app. So much better than the paper letters that thug never get untill it's to late.
Governor Excellent App, Such a easy way to share information with Parents, Pupils and School staff.
Useful Great way to communicate though finding messages could be a bit cleaner
Cant confirm groups Stuck on groups page cant get any further ?
Its good but needs improvement The noyification are good but need to have an option to view them in a calender format which we can print as well.
It's ok gives me the messages.
It works for a week, then stops. Poor
Scoop Always stops working have to uninstall and reinstall to get notifications.
Poor Really bad UI considering the main users are techno lacking parents. Hope the school has not paid for this yet!
Push notifications don't work Don't get push notifications anymore have to open the app and manually check the alerts. Reinstalled and working now. Can you put a fix in so the next update doesn't stop the alerts. Still having major issues with this. Alerts pop up in notification bar but when you go to the app there is no alert. I still have to delete and reinstall all the time to receive alerts. Please can you fix the issues
Slight improvement I can see the school newsletters now after resetting the app.
Can't see any of the pictures in the newsletters on my Samsung mobile phones have tried uninstalling
Unfortunately it's developed problems I have been using schoop to keep in touch with my children's school. It worked well to start with but it has now become a problem. I am subscribed to 2 year groups but get news and alerts for all years. I have tried deleting the app and re-subscribing but the problem is not resolved. So for that reason I am not able to rate it highly.
Good for mobile Easy and simple to use for busy parents and we love this schoop app.Hope schoop carries on till college.
Such a shame This is such an ingenious idea. It's just a shame it doesn't work on my phone or tablet. I very rarely recieve notifications when they come through and that's if the message comes through at all! I never get a notification ping, or any other sound for that matter to alert me on either my phone or tablet. I've resorted to using the website to recieve emails as I cannot rely on this app. Is this a Samsung issue?
Good but......... Good but it won't download any news letters in fact it won't download anything. I've uninstalled then reinstalled I've informed the school who's emailed schoop but still no luck. Good for the alerts.
Random Alert pop ups when there are no new messages. when clicking the back (android) key the program exits, clicking the back (schoop) button goes back to channels making navigation a nightmare. Trying to review previous messages is a chore as it's so slow scrolling down. Also none of the pdf attachments open, clicking the link does nothing. All in all a terrible app forced upon us by my children's school.
Rubbish Very slow, can't scroll down screen, and things don't stay live very long. Will be reporting this back to the head of the school.
Cannot open pdfs I'm missing out on a lot of info as I can't open any newsletters as PDF. I've uninstalled and reloaded it and it still doesn't work.
Very poor Very poor lay out hve to go into different page to read messages
I like this app becouse it tells me thing about school
For a new user all is working well! Not used this before but i am finding it very useful! Working perfectly for me.
Love the idea but have stopped getting notifications. Have unistalled and reinstalled, worked for a bit and now notifications have stopped again.
Good but......... Good but it won't download any news letters in fact it won't download anything. I've uninstalled then reinstalled I've informed the school who's emailed schoop but still no luck. Good for the alerts. Update 5/5/16 They fixed it so I could download then by the next update it was back to not letting me download anything.
Cannot open news letters I cannot open news letters and it also does not keep my choice of class ticked I the options. I am also getting notifications for the nursery classes.
Poor app performance This seems to run really slowly, poor performance from the whole app. Also, why does the back button exit the app instead of go back to the previous screen?
Cllr for Llangynwyd/Gov Board 2 Local Primary Schools. Very informative, Instant Feedback to Pupils for Homwork/parents for Message/Sickness/Appointments../Meetings/Multy level Administration/ Fantastic school aid.
Not fit for purpose Unable to open any links in my phone. Can't read any newsletters, etc. Very annoying
Fantastic Brilliant way to communicate with schools. Clear platform.
Unable to download newsletters, its not all it was made out to be.
Such a frustrating app Don't know how many times I have pressed the back key on my phone and the app exits. Sooooo annoying. User interface needs some work and I find the notifications don't always work. Nice idea poorly implemented. Hope it improves with updates.
Custom rubbish Keep getting push notifications telling me to customise something. Whenever I open the app it doesn't give me any customisation options and I have to chose my children's classes every time I go in the calendar... is it too hard to remember which class I chose last time??
Nome features not working Cant view the pictures or read any documents that are attached. The contact page shoop brings up states this page is no longer available. Pretty annoying
Good intentions... Despite the good intentions of the app it just doesn't work well on my Samsung S5. Seems like there's some probs with android in general looking at reviews / forums. Hope they fix in future. Main prob is notifications aren't received - the main purpose of the app.
Text shrunk at random. Same thing happened to my partner a few weeks ago ended up reinstalling but happened again.
It's ok Stopped sending me notifications.... crashes sometimes
Useful communication tool When you set up the groups correctly, it is a good form of instant communication from school.
Nice simple way for the schools to keep us informed. Does the job in an uncomplicated way.
Another way to lines of communication
V good Find the app very useful with alerts from school.
Great to be informed so quickly
