SIMS Parent App

The new Parent App

Easy access to important school information which replaces the Data Collection Form


Due to the new data protection regulations (GDPR) we will no longer be sending out the Data Collection Forms to check your information, in paper format. For security and the safe transfer of your data we will be using a new Parent App. You can access the system from a smartphone, tablet or PC – anytime, anywhere.


What will you find in the SIMS Parent App:

  • School Term, INSET dates and contact details available at the click of a button.
  • Access to update your contact details, so we always have the most up-to-date information in case of emergency
  • If you have more than one child at school, you’ll have access to information for all your children, from the same app.
