The benefits

Included in your SIMS annual entitlement fee:

  • Available on iOS, Android, and a web browser
  • Ability to send notifications to parents reminding them to update their details
  • Parents can electronically review and request changes to the data and any crucial details held on them and their children
  • Nominated SIMS admin accounts receive automatic emails when a parent submits a change request
  • Audit trail within SIMS allows administrators to view previous requests and details of any action taken
  • Allows users to use an existing email account to login, removing the need for a school to manage user accounts
  • Manual data entry reduced, and paper-based data collection eliminated

Please note: You must have parent/contact emails in SIMS for this product to work correctly


There is also a complete solution for providing information to parents with the SIMS Parent App which is available, although unfortunately, this one comes with a cost. Keep an eye out for a future blog on this or contact us for more information.

If you would like us to install this product for you, please contact the service desk using the usual number and email 0345 222 1551 • Option 3 or email missservicedesk@schoolbusinessservices.co.uk and we can then arrange for this to be done for you. There is a cost of £95+VAT for this to be carried out as the installation is not always straight-forward.
