SIMS Parent ‘App’ – have you registered?

Posted on: 9th January 2019

Parent ‘App’ (launched November 2018)

The SIMS Parent App(lication) makes it easy for parents to access to important academy information.

It is a convenient new way to share information, with parents/carers about their child’s academy life.

The App can be accessed from a smartphone, tablet or PC – anytime, anywhere.

What will you find in the SIMS Parent App?

  • Important information such as attendance, behaviour, achievement and homework
  • Academy term, inset dates and contact details – at the click of a button
  • Access to students’ academy reports

What else can the App do?

  • Over time, as we develop the system, the App will be able to send out notifications to remind parents/carers about important information such as key dates for their diaries;
  • It allows parents/carers to access and update contact details (including email addresses and mobile ‘phone numbers), so we always have the most up-to-date information in case of emergency.
  • If parents/carers have more than one child at Academy, the App will enable them access to information for all children

The information that available through the app will help parents/carers to stay up-to-date with their child’s academy life, as well as to support their child(ren)’s development and progress.
