UCS JB launched with HomeRun-App towards the end of Summer term 2018. The ever increasing traffic congestion around Hampstead had become a huge issue for the school, the concern for high levels of air pollution around the school site and how it was negatively impacting the wellbeing of students on a daily basis.
Mr Hayward's (Headteacher) key objective was to reduce the amount of peak time car usage and facilitate school journey sharing between parents to increase sustainable travel.
By the end of the first term, UCS signed up 98% of Parents and Staff! Which is a fantastic sign up rate, indicating the urgent need for change.
"HomeRun was incredibly easy to launch, no IT integration was required and we were up and running in just a couple of hours. We achieved a good sign-up rate on launch and once we started posting day to day school messages on the HomeRun app, everyone else signed up too. We couldn’t be happier with how the platform is working out for us and would recommend the service to all schools!" Lewis Hayward, Headteacher
