Welcome! to Pinboard

Pinboard is a free, optional email newsletter that acts like a traditional ‘Pinboard’ in the school hall.

Need to find a trusted nanny? Sell an outgrown bicycle? Rent a house? Raise money for a fun run?

Pinboard creates a trusted, enclosed network for the adults in your children's school and organises school-gate chat and wisdom into one simple, weekly newsletter.

It is helpful, positive and fun - the most useful email you will get all week!

How does it work?
