“DiaryZapp for Schools is a daily journaling app, designed to help children develop  positive emotional wellbeing habits.”

Schools have a vital role to play in supporting children’s emotional wellbeing and mental health, teaching them the skills they need to recognise and deal with their emotions.

“We believe that many mental health problems are preventable, but for prevention to work for children, changes need to take place in our schools, from primary level upwards.”

“If we are not tackling mental health problems early, then we risk failing the next generation right at the start of their lives.”

Dr Antonis Kousoulis, Associate Director at the Mental Health Foundation

We know how important the wellbeing of children and young people is to teachers and school staff but they are under pressure and can’t always be expected to be mental health experts. Schools are working hard to address children’s mental health and support their emotional wellbeing but it can be a challenge. They need practical, easy-to-access support that really works for the young children they teach, which is why we have developed DiaryZapp for Schools.

Using DiaryZapp for Schools in your classroom can help children to develop positive emotional wellbeing habits by encouraging them to make sense of what is going on around them. 

  • Encouraging children to express their emotions
  • Providing positive daily messages which boost wellbeing
  • Helping children establish healthy routines by rewarding consistency 

DiaryZapp for Schools provides a creative safe space for children, where there are no wrong answers, allowing them to reflect on their day and process their emotions.




Our unique Zappicon characters  act as a child’s personal guide through the app encouraging them with their journaling through conversation starters and by asking questions to help them reflect on their day.

The Zappicons are designed to be relatable, diverse and can be customised.

Positive Journaling

Every day children are greeted with a positive message as they start to write their journal. If they don’t feel like writing they can use the toolbox to draw, colour and add stickers to reflect their day.
Speech to text functionality allows children to talk about their day and create a journal page without writing.

Emotion Tracker

Boost Literacy
When children create their daily journal entry we have incorporated a simple daily emotional check-in to help children express how they are feeling.
If they feel that they need extra support we have made it easy for them to reach out to their teacher or parent.


We have incorporated levels and colours within the app to encourage children to complete a daily journal entry, demonstrate progress and reward consistency.

Additional Functionality

In addition DiaryZapp for Schools incorporates functionality that enables:

  • Children to login from anywhere – home, school or away on different devices by downloading the free DiaryZapp for Schools app on their home device
  • Connects Teachers and Parents so families can get involved
  • Automated teacher alerts based on key word trigger notifications
