St James Church School has a duty of care to all our pupils. This care comes into being every day at the start of the school day and whilst the pupil is on school premises. In order to assist with this duty, we have made the decision to use a text messaging service to communicate more easily on a number of subjects involving your children, such as emergency closures and events for example. To inform parents or designated carers of important issues, the text messaging service will send a standard text message to your mobile phone number. Apart from the contact telephone number and the pupil’s first name, no other personal data will be retained by the texting company. In instances where there is no mobile phone number supplied, we will endeavour to send the message to the pupil’s home telephone number.
To enable this service to run efficiently, please let the office know of any changes to mobile telephone numbers.
