Phorms Schule Frankfurt – School 2.0
‘We wanted to make internal school communications faster, more reliable and more sustainable for parents,’ says Nickolas Praulins, head of primary school at the Phorms Campus Frankfurt City. Initiated by Praulins and the parent representative council, and in collaboration with educational consultant Miriam Kumpf and the Corporate Systems and Projects department at Phorms Education SE, an intranet was developed and released at the end of last year. The platform meets the needs of parents, giving them independent access to information about events, school policy, forms and Praulins’ and his collegues’ live blog, all at a glance and with just a few clicks. Each parent receives their own username and password for accessing the intranet. The school’s own intranet calendar can also be transferred to parents’ personal calendar, making family schedules easier to plan. For Praulins, it was also important to create a place where the school community could come together online and stay up to date. ‘The intranet offers working parents in particular a transparent insight into what’s going on at the school,’ he explains. The intranet is under continual development based on parents’ feedback, and a new version with new features is soon to be released.
