SIMS Parent and SIMS Learning Gateway

Some of you may have logins for SIMS Learning Gateway, our previous way for you to be able to view various information about your son/daughter but this is about to be phased out.  The replacement product we are about to launch is called SIMS Parent and you will receive an email inviting you to register within the next couple of weeks.

SIMS Parent

SIMS Parent will allow you to view your son / daughter’s timetable, attendance and achievement information.  You can also see progress reports that we publish to the account at regular intervals.  You will be able to see your own contact details and update them via the app.  We will then pick up the change request, and action at our end.  You will receive a notification once your change has been actioned.

SIMS Parent is accessible via computer desktop or via an app on your phone once you have set up your account.

If you have children at more than one school, you are able to link the app to other schools that are also using SIMS Parent.  Avonbourne and Avonwood are automatically linked.  If you have a child at Avonbourne or Avonwood AND Harewood, you will need to link the schools/colleges via the app. If you have children at more than one school, you must register the second child with the same log in process be it Facebook, Gmail, etc. If you use a different log in method, the two accounts will not link.

Instructions on how to register for SIMS Parent will be available in the email you receive. 

If you do not receive an email invitation in the next couple of weeks, please contact the College/school via the simsparent@avonbournetrust.org specifically for this process.  Please ensure that you include in your email, the student’s name and your own details.

If you have not registered an email address with us, please also get in touch.
