At St Bede’s we are always looking to strengthen our links with parents and carers. An exciting new service is now available for parents/carers to ensure communication between St Bede’s and yourselves is easier and more effective. Groupcall Xpressions is a service created by the award-winning school communication company Groupcall Limited (the company we have used previously to send text messages).
The app is completely free of charge to you and can be installed on your mobile phone or tablet. It currently supports both Apple iOS and Android devices and you’ll be able to see information for your children. You can also login on a web browser at https://xpressions.groupcall.com
What do I need to do now?
Please ensure we have your correct mobile number and email address on our school database to ensure you can use the new app as soon as it is available. Please email any recently updated mobile phone numbers and/or email addresses to email@example.com BEFORE attempting to set up the app. You will receive a reply stating the email address and mobile phone number have been update and then will be able to install the app. You’ll need to make sure you keep these details up to date in future to maintain access to the service.
What happens next?
- Once installed, you will be able to receive free messages and updates sent by the school delivered directly to the app.
- When replies are required, you will be able to reply to St Bede’s directly from the app.
- If proving a successful form of communication, we will continue to investigate some of the other functions available within Xpressions to the benefit of our home-school partnership.
Groupcall provide a dedicated support website for parents to also help you get up and running with Xpressions, or answer any common questions parents have on using the app: http://parents.groupcall.com
