Cashless catering now available in the Xpressions app

We are pleased to inform you that St James has now launched a cashless catering facility to enable you to electronically pay for school lunches and snacks from the school canteen.

The cashless catering icon will appear at the top of your Xpressions timeline and will give you the ability to top up the account, shows the balance of your account and a full transaction history of what your child(ren) has purchased. Please note your balance will update daily.

What do I need to do now?

Please download the Xpressions App but first 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.
