SIMS Parent App
The SIMS Parent App and website will allow you to monitor your child’s progress in school more closely than ever before. You will have immediate access to your child’s Attendance Records and Grade Reports and you will be able to monitor the homework that has been set on a daily basis.
The app has been rolled out to all parents (including siblings at Edgbarrow). The homework reporting facility is active for year groups.
You will need to link either Microsoft (Hotmail, Outlook.com, Office 365), Twitter, Facebook or Google Account to your SIMS Parent account. This will mean that you don’t have to remember another set of usernames and passwords, however, please remember that if the account you have linked with SIMS Parent is ever compromised, to ensure the safety of your data you must take action to secure your account by following the advice and instructions of your account provider. Additionally, password resets for these accounts will have to be dealt with directly by the account provider.
SIMS Parent allows you to access our student data system from a smartphone, tablet or PC – anytime, anywhere. You can even use your preferred social media login to access the app. If you have more than one child at Edgbarrow School, you’ll have access to information for all your children, from the same app.
