For Parents

Parent Zone

Parent Zone provides high quality information to parents and carers about their children’s wellbeing and resilience. It starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.

Access Parent Info.

The information available covers a wide range of subject matter, from difficult topics about sex, relationships, the internet, body image and peer pressure to broader parenting topics like ‘How much sleep do teenagers need?’ Parent Info is a collaboration between the child protection command of the National Crime Agency (CEOP) and Parent Zone that has a track record of providing information, support and advice to parents and is focused on the impact of digital technologies on families.

SIMS Parent Lite

Update information such as medical details, mode of transport and contact information with SIMS Parent Lite. In a move to improve home-school communication, we are adopting a more paperless approach to contacting parents and carers.
  • Allows you to review and request changes to information such as medical details and contact details. Parents can also provide additional information on these crucial details, ensuring that personal information not previously held in SIMS is collected.
  • Allows you to complete an online “data checking sheet” to update the contact information we hold for your son/daughter removing the need for paper-based collection –something we would urge you to do the first time you log in.

With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect, schools will have certain requirements around the way they use pupil and parent data.  SIMS Parent Lite 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.
