SIMS Parent App Lite; Free SIMS App

Do you want to:

  • Save time in the office

  • Reduce Printing costs

  • Spend less time data inputting into SIMS

  • Have a GDPR compliant way of collecting/updating essential data from parents/carers?

SIMS Parent App Lite is a free, easy to use, easy to administer app that will help your school meet requirements, and work in line with the upcoming GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) guidelines as well as support your school around current Ofsted standards in respect of parental engagement. It allows schools to collect the most up-to-date data about students and their parents, removing the need for manual Data Collection Sheets, and the hours associated with updating SIMS manually. Available on iOS, Android and a 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.
Schools have the ability to send notifications to parents, reminding them to update their details, reducing manual data entry and eliminating paper based data collection.

Prior to a successful launch of this new App, it is ESSENTIAL that the information displayed to Parents is accurate and timely. Before Parent App can be released to a school you will need to complete a check list to ensure all areas have been checked and if necessary updated.

This course is designed to help school staff understand what data will be displayed in Parent App Lite and how the data held in SIMS should be prepared.
