SIMS Parent App
It is the parents responsibility to update us with contact information of their children. In order to support this process and with the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018 and schools having new requirements around the way they use pupil and parent data the school has introduced the SIMS Parent Lite app. The SIMS Parent Lite app helps schools comply with the new GDPR data requirements, by providing a simple way to collect, manage and handle information by obtaining accurate data securely from parents.
In order to prevent unnecessary data being printed off and misplaced the school would like parents to use the SIMS Parent Lite app. This system will be used for updating your contact information which means if you need to let us know a change to a telephone number or address or a contact you can do this quickly and at any time of the day or night.
The app is available on iOS and Android for use on mobile devices, and can also be accessed via a web browser. The SIMS Parent Lite app provides a convenient and accessible solution for parents to electronically review and request changes to the data held on them and their children.
