Keep Parents and Guardians Updated

Parent Portal gives you everything you need to keep all parents and guardians constantly updated on the data your school holds on their child – creating excellent communication, providing extensive information and giving them constant peace of mind.

You can customise the module to your own school’s style and content, and every action is logged. You can also access valuable information such as how many visitors the site has and other useful stats, and once it’s set up it needs hardly any maintenance.

Easily View All Information

To see how their child is progressing, parents can view their timetables, teaching groups, attendance, detentions or reward and conduct records and what groups or events they are involved in. They can also find information on all exam arrangements, read their child’s reports and fill in and return permission forms electronically.

Simple Registration

You are able to send parents a letter with a simple activation code so they can register and use the portal. They can update their own contact details, reset their passwords or username when they need to and access a huge range of information from other iSAMS modules. They can even create their own groups and mailing lists using unlimited texts and emails.

Despite only going live in September, by November we were rolling out the Parent Portal and iParent App. These features have been particularly significant for us as we’re currently encouraging a home-school learning initiative, which hasn’t really been supported by previous school management information systems.

I’m also a parent here, so I get to experience the Portal and App from both perspectives, and I love how slick and easy they are to use – so much so that we’re planning on rolling out more modules through them soon.
