Welcome to The British School of Barcelona Parent App
The British School of Barcelona Parent App is designed to be a one-stop shop for quick and easy access to general information about BSB and messages from school about your child’s Year group.
Through the App you will have quick access to the latest school News, key calendar Events, general Information and Contacts details. We also use it to send important messages and reminders via the Alerts section.
So, whether you are out and about with your phone or at home with access to a tablet, you will always have a quick and convenient way to find key information or simply browse.
We hope you make the most of this School-Parent Communication channel!

1. Click on the More… button on the Home screen. This will display a secondary grey menu on the left-hand side.
2. Go to the Settings page and opt yourself into the groups of interest to you:
- Channels: For alerts and notifications – Select the following Channels (all of them):
– Urgent: Leave “Urgent” alerts always switched on: this is for important messages to the whole school
– Select one of Castelldefels Early Years / Castelldefels Primary / Castelldefels Secondary / Castelldefels Sixth Form
– Select your child’s Year Group (i.e. Castelldefels Year 1, or Castelldefels Year 10…)
It is very important that you have ALL THREE SELECTED
If you have more than one children, make sure you select all the stages and year groups for all your children

It is a good idea to close the App when not in use. This allows content to refresh and you will not miss anything urgent since alert messages will pop up on your phone even when the App is off.
You can find a more detailed guide to navigating the App in the Information tile on the Home screen: “Using the App” information item and on the Parents’ Portal.
