Our Communication Tool
At St Benedict’s we use SchoolPing to send out all school related communications, letters and messages.
You can access SchoolPing via the mobile app or on the web based platform.
How to set up your account
Go to https://stbendic-bham.secure-dbprimary.com/ or download the app from your app store. You will be asked to enter your username and password. These will have been provided by the school office.
Type in your username and password and click on “Log in”. You will then be taken through the set up steps.
If you have been sent an email, you will be taken through these steps after clicking on "Start using SchoolPing".
After setting your password you will be asked to enter your e-mail address. Keep in mind that your email address can only be used to verify one account.
Verify you email address
It is vital that you verify your email address. Once you have completed the setup, you will be sent an email with a link asking to verify your email address.
If you do not receive this link within 30 minutes, please go back to the app and check to make sure you have entered your email address correctly. Make any changes necessary and re-send the “verify email” email.
When initially setting up your account, you will be asked if you want Inactivity Lockout switched on. At this point you must click no, this will prevent you from being locked out of your account if you don’t access it for more than a week. This can also be turned off from the settings within the app or website.
