What is SIMS Parent?

The SIMS Online Parent App is a convenient way to share information with you about your child’s school life.

SIMS Parent is a website and an App - they have the same functionality; the website is www.sims-parent.co.uk and the App for your phone/tablet is available from the Google Play or Apple App store - search for SIMS Parent. 

For queries with the Parent App, please email ParentApp@priestlands.hants.sch.uk

Getting started with SIMS Parent

Available as an App on iOS and Android, and a website, we are able to adopt a paperless approach to data collection that also complies with new GDPR regulations and Ofsted standards in respect of parental engagement.

You will need a pre-existing Facebook, Microsoft (Hotmail, Live, Outlook, Office365 etc), Google, or Twitter account to access this product.

  1. When your child joins school, we will send you an introduction email - this email contains a registration link and an invitation code. This email will be sent from Capita SIMS (noreply@sims.co.uk). If you cannot find this email, please check your junk mail and ensure it has not been marked as SPAM. Simply click on the link within the email to start activating your account*
  2. You can then login using your pre-existing Facebook, Twitter, Google or Microsoft username and password.
  3. The registration screen should pre-populate the invitation code automatically, if not, copy and paste from the invitation email and click register
  4. You will then be asked to input the date of birth of one of your children attending the school.
  5. Your account is then set up and configured.
  6. Once Registered, on your smartphone or tablet, you can download the app.
  7. Alternatively, from any web browser on any computer or device, login online at sims-parent.co.uk
