SIMS Parent Lite app

SIMS Parent Lite app

In order to support compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we are in the process of rolling out SIMS Parent Lite to collect, manage and handle key information about your child by obtaining information securely from you.


What can I see or do on the SIMS Parent Lite app?  
SIMS Parent Lite App enables you to update us with key contact information for your child in a secure and safe way. 


From the app you can make changes to your child's contact information and medical details.  Please check the data we hold on file for your child and, if required, amend this accordingly.  Please note it is vital that we have at least THREE contact number if at all possible so that we are able able to make contact if we need to do so.


When a change request is submitted by you, automatic emails are sent to the school office.  Our Office Staff will then action these changes for you as well as being able to view previous requests and details of any action taken via the audit trail within SIMS.


From time to time, we will send notifications to remind you to update your child's details, eliminating paper-based data collection and manual errors.


Paper Data Forms will no longer be automatically sent out for every child.

As the Parent App is rolled out you will receive an invitation code to join SIMS Parent Lite app.  The invitation will have been received from noreply@sims and will be valid for 14 days.
