Online Services for Parents

The school uses a number of online services so that we can offer parents the best possible service. Each platform has a specific purpose and has been carefully considered to meet the needs of parents and students.

We know it can confusing keeping track of different systems and services so we have pulled together this page to provide an overview of each service, it’s purpose and how you can gain access.

‘My Ed’ School Mobile App

For an up to date insight in to your child’s school life, download and access the ‘My Ed‘ Mobile app. The app gives you direct access to your child’s attendance, timetable, absence records and much more.

To access MyEd simply download the ‘My Ed‘ app and create yourself an account using your current mobile number and email address (please make sure we have your up to date contact details). A sync will then take place overnight to authenticate your account and providing the details you provide match our school records your children will appear the next day under the ‘My Students‘ section.

The My Ed mobile app is available for anybody to download however, only parents will gain access to the personalised ‘My student’ area.

SIMS Parent

With both technical advancements and the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we’re working hard to ensure that we are giving our parents complete transparency and control over their own and their child’s personal data.

SIMS Parent enables parents to view and amend all the core personal data we hold directly from your mobile or computer devices. Data collection is managed digitally, avoiding the need for parents to complete, review and return lots of paper forms.

SIMS Parent is available on a mobile app as well on laptop and desktop computers.
