Spark EYFS software

Can I use spark to communicate daily with parents?

Back to Your Questions

sparkESSENTIAL and sparkPRO are not mobile apps.

The parents may choose to have a mobile app; spark@HOME

The reasons for this are as follows:
– It isn’t best practice or desirable for mobile phones to be in the classroom for child protection reasons.
– Although mainly ‘mobile friendly’ it is easier to use spark on a bigger screen (and small phones are more likely to go down the toilet or be thrown)
– On sparkESSENTIAL and sparkPRO you can still use the software alongside reports you may have downloaded which is very convenient as you don’t lose your place or need to use two devices
spark is a huge program and our efforts have concentrated on giving the functions required to keep moving practice forward rather than being constricted by an app
– Some IT systems (e.g Connect Childcare, Tapestry) do provide an app but then need syncing between the app and the main software

It is possible to have an icon on each tablet home-screen for logging on, but most settings don’t bother as the URL address is remembered by each device.
