SIMS Parent Portal/App

The school is starting to introduce a new parental engagement platform to replace the SIMS Learning Gateway.  The new system is called SIMS Parent and comprises an App for both Android and Apple devices, as well as a web portal.

Invites have been issued to all parents, i you have not received one, or it has expired please email itsupport@barkingabbeyschool.co.uk with your child's name and form to request a new one

SIMS Parent will give you access to information on your child such as:

  • Timetable
  • Attendance 
  • Reports
  • Conduct
  • School Calendar

If you have more than one child at the school you can access their information from the same dashboard and you can also update the information the school holds for you and your child directly from the App.

Registering is easy, and detailed in this document. All you need to get started are:

  • the invitation email (this will come from noreply@sims.co.uk, if you can't find it please check your junk mail folder)
  • a Microsoft (Outlook.com, Office 365), Google , Facebook or Twitter account
  • the date of birth of one of your children attending the school

Once you've registered you can download and start using the App, or log on to the parent portal at https://www.sims-parent.co.uk.

If you have any issues either logging in or registering please email itsupport@barkingabbeyschool.co.uk with details of the problem, the name of you child and year group.  We will aim to respond to queries within 24 hours.
