Parent App Information
New! from autumn term 2017……..
We have changed to a new Capita-Sims service which replaces the Sims Learning Gateway.
The service is the Parent-App, which may be accessed via phones/tablets (there are Apps for both the Apple and Android platforms) and on PCs/computers where it is easily accessible from any standard web browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Apple Safari etc
New! October 20th ~ invitations have now been sent ‘from the ParentApp service’ to the parents/carers of our Year-10 / 11 / 12 / 13 Students. The invitation eMail describes how to complete the secure sign-up process.
New! November ~ invitations will be sent to the parents/carers of Year-7 / 8 / 9 Students.
The service is available to all parents/carers with ‘parental responsibility’ (as defined in legislation), and for whom we have a valid/current eMail address on our records.
Student reports will continue to be emailed to parents/carers using SIMS In-Touch. These reports will also be uploaded to the Sims Parent-App service where they can be read once logged in.
Both In-Touch and the SIMS Parent-App are secure communication services which meet the Data Protection Requirements as defined by the Information Commissioner’s Office.
Your username can be tied to your personal eMail address, and access is controlled through the service we obtain from Capita-Sims (who ‘host’ the data).
The Sims Learning Gateway service is now disabled.
