Parent App Lite
SIMS Parent App Lite is included in your SIMS annual entitlement fee and is an effective way of securely collecting pupil data from parents. The help desk staff at One Education have managed to onboard most of our schools and invitations to many school administrators have already been sent out. Parent App Lite provides a convenient, on the move, solution for parents to manage changes to their child’s data as it is available on iOS, Android and a browser. This is a cost effective way of maintaining accurate data in compliance with the GDPR requirement and will also ensure the accuracy of your data when migrating across to SIMS Primary. When a parent submits a change request emails are automatically sent to nominated administrators. Paper requests are eliminated and returns are easily tracked through an audit trail.
The full version of SIMS Parent App is available should schools wish to upgrade. Parents will be able to monitor their child’s attendance, check school reports, conduct, homework, school activities and timetables.
The SIMS Conference 2018 is a great opportunity to find out more about these new products.
