Phoenix Primary School utilises 'Connect' to communicate with the school community and share important notices, newsletters and forms. Classroom teachers will also use Connect to share information relevant to their students.
Connect is a secure online environment developed by the Department of Education for staff, students and parents in public schools. It gives our teachers a tool to deliver content to the students via an online classroom. This means your children are able to share with you what they are learning about, submit assignments and discuss issues together online anywhere, anytime. For you, Connect provides easy access to information relevant to your child’s classes.
For more information, please read the FAQ's below and download the Connect user guide at the bottom of this screen.
Connect is accessible via an app or website browser www.connect.det.wa.edu.au
Will you notify me when there’s a message or notice in Connect?
Yes. Currently when a teacher of your child/ren publishes a Notice an email is automatically sent to you letting you know a notice has been created. The message is included in the email, however if you wish to access the images or files that are attached or add a comment (if the teacher has encouraged you to respond), you will be required to log onto Connect. Alternatively you may download Connect Now (free) from Google Play or Apple App Store and receive any notices as notifications on your phone.
What if I don’t really use email?
Connect Now, a mobile app, enables all Connect parents to use their single sign on account details and stream all of the Notices and discussions in any of their child/ren’s classes to their personal mobile device. The app is free and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
Can I reply to messages?
The teacher will sometimes invite you to respond to messages. When this happens a Comment button will be visible under the Connect Notice. You can respond either by logging in to Connect or through the Connect Now app.
Who else sees the class notices?
Only students and parents attached to a teacher’s class are able to access and read class notices.
What if I forget my login details?
You are able to set verification questions to reset your own password or if you prefer contact the school if you forget your login details. This is only accessible via the website browser and not via the app.
