Sims Parent App


From September 2017, we are rolling out the SIMS Parent App to the Parents/Guardians of Year 8, Year 10, Year 11 and Year 13 pupils.

Why use the SIMS Parent App?

  • Easy and convenient to use
  • No need to remember a new username or password
  • Information is accessible at a time convenient to you
  • You can access information about your child from a smartphone, tablet or PC
  • The information that you will receive through the App will help you support your child’s development and progress as well as stay up-to-date with school life

What information will you be able to see

  • Attendance information – you will receive a weekly notification about your child’s attendance
  • Achievement information – a notification is sent every time your child receives a merit
  • School calendar and school contact details
  • Your child’s timetable
  • Your child’s tracking, Christmas and summer reports
