SIMS Parent App

We are very excited to announce that we are introducing a new way to communicate and share information with you, our parent community.  At St Paul’s Way Trust School, we recognise that you play an important role in your child’s education and want to feel as much a part of your child’s learning as possible.  With the increased use of smart phone technology, we want to use this to create better working partnerships between school and home.

SIMs Parent app is free, which gives you a multitude of communication and information features to stay in touch with what is going on at school. The app gives you direct access to your child's attendance, timetable and attendance records and potentially much more as we work to further develop our use of this system.  We will update and change the information in the app as the school year progresses.

Messages will be sent directly to the SIMs parent app relating to important information about your child's education and to remind you of events that are taking place at school. You will receive a notification if we send you a message and there is no charge for the messages you send to us.

The SIMs parent app is available for both Apple iOS and Android devices.  Once you have installed and opened SIMs parent app, search for St Paul’s Way Trust School and follow the simple instructions to identify yourself. 

NB. The app must synchronise with school systems overnight. The app will not appear to work at first, please check it again the following day.
