SIMS Learning Gateway (SLG) Guides and Documents
Swanmore College SIMS Learning Gateway (SLG) is an information system to enable you to access real time information about your child which uses the information held in SIMS, the College’s main database.
The main benefits are that: –
- It will give access to a range of information including pupil progress reports, achievement and behaviour events, assessment data, attendance and timetable details.
- The system is easy to use and most of the data is displayed visually in tables and graphs.
- The system is compatible with tablets and smartphones.
- Parent/Carer personal and contact details can be updated online.
- The secure username and password will be the same if you have more than one child at Swanmore College.
- The contact details you provide in SLG will be the same details used in our Parent Communications System.
Security and access
- Only parents/carers with ‘parental responsibility’ for a child are entitled to use SLG.
- Access to this system is restricted to parents/carers, pupils and authorised staff and you will only be able to see data for your child. A parent/carer will be able to see contact information for another parent/carer, contact or child (e.g. address, phone number, email address etc.).
- All data is managed by the College and is held securely within the College; sensible measures have been taken to safeguard this information.
- When you connect to SLG, data is transmitted across the Internet securely using security encryption.
- You will be able to change your password at any time to maintain the security of your account.
SLG is accessible on a variety of computer internet browsers and mobile devices. In order to access SLG you will need a reliable Broadband or 3G/4G connection. Note: Accessing SLG on 3G/4G may incur data charges – please consult your mobile provider.
You will be prompted for a new password every six months. The new password should be at least 7 characters in length, with a mix of: upper case letters, lower case letters, numbers and special characters (* ! $ etc.). It should not contain your/your child’s name or anything from your address (house/street name). If you receive an error message, it means the system hasn’t accepted the password. In that instance, please try a different password.
