An essential part of our work together involves forming a strong partnership between students, home and school so that we can best support your child. A key aspect of this partnership is regular communication. We are using SIMS Parent, which is an online system, accessed either as a website via a link on the school website or a downloaded app, as our method of communicating key information to you.
SIMS Parent is used to share with you the following information regarding your child:
- conduct - daily achievements and behaviour events including homework completion information
- reports at key points across the year
SIMS Options online is also accessed via SIMS Parent during January and February for parents/carers of years 8-10. Further information can be found on the options page under the students tab.
New year 7 families
If you already have a SIMS Parent account for Aylsham High School, your year 7 child will show on your existing account.
All other new accounts will be sent out during the first couple of weeks in September. These were sent out in the afternoon of Monday 18th September.
Acceptable Use Procedure
In order to use SIMS Parent, all parents/carers must agree to the Acceptable Use Procedure. This is emailed to you by the SIMS Parent team when you are invited to activate your account. Please ensure that you read the AUP before activating your account as by clicking on the link in the email you are agreeing to the AUP. You will also find the Acceptable Use Procedure below.
