Parentapps founder joins line-up for innovation event

Sir Terry Leahy, Kevin Clayton, and Bill Currie

Kevin Clayton, the founder and CEO of award-winning Parentapps, has joined the line-up for a virtual event exploring how innovation is fuelling growth in the Liverpool City Region.

Kevin and his wife Hailey created Parentapps in 2015 to helps schools communicate with parents via its bespoke multi-functional digital app.

The app, PA Connect, is used by more than 100,000 parents allowing them to access all the latest news from their children’s schools.

In the last year sales of Parentapps’ services, which also include building school websites, were driven by lockdowns and the increasing need for schools to deliver homework remotely.
