SIMS Parent App

Please click the image above to see more of how our new SIMS Parent App works


The Sims parent App is a convenient new way to share information with you about your child's school life. You can access the secure system from your smartphone, tablet or PC.

Things you will find in the SIMS Parent App:

  • Important information such as attendance, behaviour, achievement and homework
  • School term, inset dates and contact details
  • Your child's school progress reports
  • Access to update your contact details so we always have the most up-to date information in case of an emergency
  • Receive notifications to remind you about important information such as key dates for your diary
  • View and consent to extra curricular activities 

If you have more than one child at school, you will 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.

For parents who have been using the SIMS Learning Gateway, the new App will provide you with the same information.
