Home / School Communications

A summary of our communications methods can be found below, along with advice and troubleshooting steps for the most common issues we come across.


To ensure that you don’t miss out on messages or emails from Ysgol Bro Gwaun:

  • We would recommend installing the app onto your mobile device which will alert you to any new message using the links below.
  • If you haven’t done so already, create your account on GroupCall Xpressions. (To start this process, please go to https://parents.groupcall.com).
  • Email sent through Xpressions will be sent from 6684031@groupcallalert.com – you may need to ensure that this address is put into the safe senders list to avoid the junk/spam folder.

You can also monitor your child(ren)s achievements/conduct/attendance through ClassCharts (https://www.classcharts.com )

  • Your child(ren) will have been issued with their ClassCharts Pupil code
  • Use this in conjunction with the ClassCharts Student App for your mobile device which can be downloaded below.
  • If you have more than 1 child in Ysgol Bro Gwaun, please contact us for a Parent Code instead.
Google Classroom

 You can also sign up for alerts from Google Classroom, which will inform you of any pending deadlines or missed homework.

  • Please complete this form to request alerts: https://forms.office.com/r/0XmcMi5399
