What do I need to sign up?
Verification is important as Squad in Touch contains sensitive information and as policy we have set up a two level verification process for all users so schools can ensure that the user signing up is the correct individual and matches data on their system. It is up to the school to ensure verification of users is correct. The platform won't allow an individual to proceed with the registration unless both codes have been confirmed.
The verification required is; mobile phone number and email address. You will receive a different code to your phone and email. Please ensure your data matches the data the school has on file, if it does not please get in touch with your school.

Parental sign up specifics
When a parental user signs up, they can add details about the child(ren) they are requesting to be linked to. This is up to the school to specify the required information the parents need to fill out; , the options are;
- First Name
- Last Name
- Form Group
We can turn on the option to enable parental Auto-accepting; when a parent is automatically accepted onto the school Squad In Touch platform. This can be based on factors of the schools choosing;
- Emergency contact details (phone number and/or email address);
