SIMS Parent

The SIMS Parent App will help you to stay up-to-date with your child’s school life as well as support your child’s development and progress. You will have immediate access to:

  • School term, inset dates and contact details
  • Notifications to remind you about important information such as key dates for your diary
  • Attendance data for your child
  • Student timetables
  • Access your child’s Progress Reports
  • Achievement and behaviour data and notifications
  • Extra-curricular activities
  • Notifications and details of your child’s homework
  • Access to update your contact details, so we always have the most up-to-date information in case of emergency

If you have more than one child at The Purbeck School, you’ll have access to information for all your children, from the same app.

SIMS Parent replaces Moodle, which many parents have used for the last few years. The App compliments the use of mobile technology and is more suited to Smartphones and Tablet devices, something which our old system lacked.  If you are currently using Moodle you will still be able to access this for a little while, however the system is due to be completely phased out towards the end of 2020.

You will not be able to use your Moodle username and password to log onto the new SIMS Parent App. Instead you will need to link either a Microsoft (Hotmail, Outlook.com, Office 365), Twitter, Facebook or Google Account to your SIMS Parent account. This will mean that you don’t have to remember another set of usernames and passwords, however please remember that if the account you have linked with SIMS Parent is ever compromised, to ensure the safety of your data you must take action to secure your account by following the advice and instructions of your account provider. Additionally, password resets for these accounts will have to be dealt directly with the account provider.
