School Systems/Apps

The school uses various systems and apps to communicate important information to parents/carers throughout the year.

Some of these you will be asked to create accounts for (e.g.)  the 'SIMS Parent App' (to access school reports and emergency contact details) and 'sQuid' (used for all online payments).

Others you will be automatically enroled on (e.g.) 'In Touch' (used to email general letters home) and 'Evolve' (used for booking school trips).

All new parents/carers will be contacted (between July and October) with full sign up instructions where necessary.

Further details of the systems we use are available here
