SIMS Parent App
The new SIMS Parent App is now live and ready to use.
This app is to help schools comply with the new GDPR regulations around data collection, accuracy and maintenance. It is and an easy-to-use, secure tool to help streamline the way Downsway School collects and maintains parent and pupil data. It will also give the power to the parents as they can keep their own data up-to-date. and significantly reduce the administration process with the school.
The SIMS Parent App will help us in managing data accuracy, upkeep and security in transit by enabling parents to confirm data and update changes as required throughout the academic year.
The app allows parents to review and request changes to information such as contact details, medical details and dietary needs electronically, as well as an additional free text area to request further detail where needed.
Downsway School will be able to push notifications to alert parents when their input is required, and the electronic process removes the need for paper-based collection and storage systems, where records can easily be lost or damaged. This allows Downsway School to be more proactive in the collection of data, and more responsive to information requests as they arise.
I hope you will support the school with this new system of data collection by registering and downloading the app, as we will no longer be issuing paper copies for amendments to pupil details.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school.
