Easy access to important school information

Dear Parent/Carer,

The Parent App – easy access to important school information

We have a convenient and effective way to share information with you about your child’s school life. You’ll be able to access our Parent App and Website.

You can access the system from a smartphone, tablet or PC – anytime, anywhere.

What will you find in the SIMS Parent App/Website:

  • Important information such as attendance, behaviour and achievement
  • School term, INSET dates and contact details available at the click of a button
  • Access your child’s school report
  • Receive notifications to remind you about important information such as key dates for your diary 
  • Access to update your contact details, so we always have the most up-to-date information in case of emergency
  • If you have more than one child at school, you’ll have access to information for all your children, from the same app.

The information that you receive through the app will help you to stay up-to-date with your child’s school life as well as support your child’s development and progress.
