We are pleased to announce the launch of SIMS Parent App and InTouch Communication System. SIMS Parent is a convenient new way for the school to share information with you about your child’s school life. InTouch will replace our current Email and Text services.
SIMS Parent allows you to access your child’s data from a smartphone, tablet or PC – anytime, anywhere. It is really easy to set up and convenient to use. You can even use your preferred social media login to access the app.
What will you find in SIMS Parent?
– Important information such as attendance, timetables, achievement, behavior, and reports.
– School term dates, inset dates and contact details.
– Notifications to remind you about important information such as key dates for your diary.
– Parents will now be able to update specific details such as contact information, medical information, dietary requirements and much more so we always have the most up-to-date information for your child.
– If you have more than one child at Al Khair, you will have access to information for all your children, from the same app.
