Subscribe to RSS
RSS feeds are a way of receiving news and other information as it’s published, helping you keep up-to-date with what’s going on at St James Junior School. Rather than having to trawl the web each day looking for news and updates, it will be delivered to your desktop or phone.
Subscribing to an RSS feed for the first time?
To subscribe to an RSS news feed you will need to use a piece of software called an RSS reader (also known as a feed aggregator or news reader), which scans the feeds and displays any new articles.
RSS readers are free. Some RSS readers (such as the ones provided by Google and Yahoo) are browser-based, which means you can access them from any computer. If you’d prefer to store all your feeds on your own computer, consider installing some reader software instead – Newz Crawler and FeedDemon are popular choices for Windows users, whereas Mac users often opt for Newsfire or NetNewsWire.
If you’d prefer to use your mobile device to read news, you can also download various RSS apps for your phone. Below are listed a couple of options for a variety of platforms:
Apple iPhone and iPad
Once you’ve set up your RSS reader, find its specific instructions for subscribing to a feed. This usually involves copying the feed’s URL and pasting it into the RSS reader.
