SIMS Parent App

The SIMS Parent App allows you to monitor your child’s progress in school more closely than ever before. *You will have access to your child’s attendance and behaviour records and interim reports.

The App replaced our SIMS Learning Gateway (On-Line Reporting System) which many parents may have previously used.

SIMS Parent App is free to download and has been designed with mobile technology in mind with an App for both Android and iOS smart phones / tablets. In addition there is also the ability to log in on a computer via a web portal which can be used with any browser or operating system.

Enrollment for SIMS Parent App is a two step process:

STEP ONE – Register for an account

You will recieve a personal invite with an activation link which will also contain your unique activation code. This will be sent via email to the email address registered to your parental contact details.

Note: From the beginning of September 2019 all parents of Year 7 students are provided with two e-mail accounts that are linked to our systems and allow them to recieve messages from school. If this applies to you then your activation link email will be sent to these accounts.

In order to register with the SIMS Parent App you will need to create a new account using one of the six avaliable options listed below:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Google
  • Microsoft (Hotmail, Outlook.com)
  • Office 365

By using one of the above options as a method for sign in it allows convenience so that you don’t have to remember another set of user names and passwords.  Remember though, if the account you have linked to SIMS Parent App 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.
