Xpressions is a service, providing parents with an app to receive messages from the school.
The app is available on iOS and Android, with plans to bring it to a web browser soon.
How does the app work?
The app receives messages, called Xpressions, sent from the school. They are similar to WhatsApp or iMessage, being transmitted over the internet rather than SMS text messages. Thousands of schools are using Xpressions, swapping out SMS and saving money in the process of communicating with their parents.
How do I get set up?
When schools sign up to use Xpressions, they automatically create an account for each parent to log in. Rather than using a username and password system, Xpressions uses information that parents will always remember- their email address and mobile phone number.
While logged in, parents will receive a notification on their phone when a new Xpression has been sent to them from the school.
What can I do once I’m logged in?
Within Xpressions, parents can access all messages that have been sent to them by the school. Depending on the product purchased by the school, parents may also have access to performance and progress information about their child, such as attendance, assessment, behaviour records and their timetable. Check with your school to learn more about the features you will have available.
