Parent Portal gives you everything you need to keep all parents and guardians constantly updated on the data your school holds on their child.

This creates excellent communication, provides extensive information and gives 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.

You then 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.

John Willetts – MIS Manager and Timetabler, Sherborne School

“iSAMS is the most intuitive, flexible and user-friendly school MIS that I have come across in my career so far. They are progressive and up-to-date with the latest technologies and recently with the release of their apps, it has positively transformed the way we manage various in-house processes and improve our parental engagement & communication.”

Benoy Ittyavirah - Director of IT, Staff Training & Development, Wycliffe College

“Sherborne Girls was an early adopter of the iSAMS product and we have been very happy with how the product range has grown. The fact that it is compatible with other systems such as SOCs, AccessIt Library, the Room Booking System, the Parents Evening System, CPOMS and TimeTabler has made integration across school departments much easier.”

Louise Orton - Deputy Head, Teaching and Learning, Sherborne Girls

Our school was looking for a student information system which could integrate well with other systems and provide the level of customisability we were looking for, iSAMS was the only one which gave us this!
