Sims Parent App and School GatewaY

SIMS Parent App

Silverton Primary School has set up SIMS Parent App. This allows parents to see and update data held about them and their child, including contact phone numbers, address etc.

SIMS Parent App can be used through a web browser, or by installing dedicated apps on Android or iPhone.

In order to access the app, you will need to be the primary contact for your child and will need to have registered an email address with the school as primary contact.

Many of you will have recevied an email invitation from the school to review and update or confirm your details held by us. Please speak to the school office if you have not received an invitation, or do not know what to do.

School Gateway

 Silverton Primary School  use School Gateway, the UK’s best parent engagement software, to make sure our parents are as closely involved with their children’s school lives as possible.

Initially we will be using this for school dinners and payments (including payment and permissions for trips) but eventually most school related communication, including newsletters, will go through School Gateway – it is the central hub of information for our parents – so to stay up to date with what’s going on at school make sure you download the app for free. Just search School Gateway in your App store and download. Simple.

Apple iPhone users, download the app here: schoolgateway.co.uk/iosdownload

Android phone users, download the app here: schoolgateway.co.uk/androiddownload

Your login details will be automatically generated using the contact information Silverton Primary School already has, so please make sure the details we hold for you are up to date. You can check and change these details by sending an email to admin@silverton.devon.sch.uk or by using the SIMS parent app if you have access.

If you already have School Gateway for another child (for example at Secondary School) School Gateway will automatically link your child at Silverton to your existing account.

If you have any questions or would like some more information, please see the School Gateway site here: https://schoolgateway.co.uk/. Alternatively, contact the school office.

You can also login to the online version of School Gateway via this site if you do not have a smart phone, although we do recommend using the app if possible as it makes it far easier to get hold of parents when we need to.
