Swanmore SIMS Parent App

Swanmore College SIMS Parent App is an information system to enable you to access real time information about your child(ren) which uses the information held in SIMS, the College’s main database. It can be accessed via a mobile app, or via a website.

Information Available via SIMS Parent App

SIMS Parent App allows you to view information on your child(ren) in real time in the following areas:

  • Attendance
  • Achievement
  • Behaviour
  • Termly Reports

It also allows you to check the details we hold for your child(ren) are correct, and if not, submit changes (e.g. emergency contact numbers).

How to Register for SIMS Parent App

In order to register for SIMS Parent App, you will need an e-mail containing an invitation code. This will be sent to parents of in-year admissions shortly after their start date, and to Year 7 intake parents in early September. If you cannot see an e-mail from “noreply@sims.co.uk” in your in box, it may be in your spam box.

On following the link in the e-mail, you will be asked to select one of your own accounts to register with. This will require a Twitter, Facebook, Google or Microsoft account. If you do not have one of these accounts, registering for a Google account is the quickest and easiest option. On this screen, please do not select the SIMS ID option.

Please do remember which of your accounts you use at this stage, as you will need to use it for all future logins to the system. There is not a username or password issued by the College, so we are unable to reset a password. Our only option is to completely revoke access and re-issue the invitation e-mail, which will require you to go through the registration process again.

To complete the registration process, you will need to enter the invitation code from the e-mail and also confirm the date of birth of your child(ren).
