What is the
Content Manager

Each school that joins The Life Channel network is provided with a piece of hardware called a Content Manager which can be connected to your existing digital technology such as interactive white boards, TV’s by reception and in corridors and any projectors). More and more schools nowadays are utilising outdoor digital display screens which can also be connected and are particularly beneficial for messages and activities during break times as well as for reaching parents and the wider community.


From here you can simply drag and drop your branded school templates (which we will design for you) into the regular playlist. These templates can be used to inform your parents of upcoming events, reminders for trip fee’s, feature your Stars of the Week, or perhaps even share the Head Teachers thought of the day. When you drag a message onto the template, you can also simply set a date for its removal or perhaps schedule it only to play on a Friday between 3.00 and 3.30. Once done you can simply forget about it as it will self-manage its appearance and removal from your screens.


We also have a huge library of SMSC content and curriculum based videos in our library, so again you can as a school design your own internal version of the channel, creating your own School TV Channel reflecting anything and everything that is happening and being taught at the school that week.
You can spend as little or as much time as you want to spare on the channel, but even at the minimal level, the end result is fantastic.

Examples of scheduled content and videos you can also download from our extensive library include:

  • Engaging pupils to understand fundamental British Values

  • Exercise videos and dance routines

  • Encouraging respect of other faiths and cultures

  • Encouraging positive mental health

  • Mindfulness

  • Communicating with parents

  • Attendance

  • Internet Safety

  • Healthy eating and exercise

  • Safeguarding

The Life Channel also offers your school
access to interactive platforms and equipment
