New Expressions service – please sign up
View your child’s information on your mobile phone!
An exciting new service is now available for parents to ensure communication between the school and yourselves is easier and more effective. Groupcall Xpressions is created by the award-winning school communication company Groupcall Limited.
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 (with Windows mobile to follow) and you’ll be able to see information for your children. St Joseph’s are planning to switch over to Expressions completely by the end of October 2017.
If you have children in different schools and those schools also use Groupcall Xpressions, you will be able to view information on multiple children within the same app.
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. Forms are available from the school office to check and update your details or simply email them to the school. 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 and set up you will be able to see some or all of the following information depending on the school’s system:
• Free messages sent by the school delivered directly to the app
• Updates regarding selected partner systems, used by the school such as homework, catering and library systems
• Attendance records and absences*
• Marks and grades*
• Achievement records*
• Behaviour events*
• School calendar*
• Notification timeline for all of the above.
