SIMS Parent App

Effectively bridge the parent-teacher-student communication gap, improving academic achievement and supporting student wellbeing.

The SIMS Parent app offers a convenient parent and pupil communication solution making it easier than ever to stay in touch.

Improving parental involvement is made simple as attendance data, behaviour, homework reminders, school reports and information about extra-curricular activities are all accessible from a smartphone, tablet or PC, and can be customised to suit your school.

Clear and easy to use, install and roll out to parents with single sign-on functionality removing the burden of resetting passwords from the school. The app does not rely on schools having expensive infrastructure to maintain it.
