Sims Parent App
The SIMS Online Parent App is a convenient new way to share information with you about your child’s school life. You can access the system easily from a smartphone, tablet or PC – anytime, anywhere. What will you find in the SIMS Parent App: • Important information such as attendance, achievement, homework & timetable. • School calendar, INSET dates and contact details available at the click of a button. • Access to your child’s school reports. • Access to the contact form to update your child’s contact details, so we always have the most up-to-date information in case of emergency. • If you have more than one child at school, you will have access to information for all your children, from the same app. The information that you receive through the app will help you to stay up-to-date with your child’s school life as well as support your child’s development and progress.

You may come across some security issues if you are trying to register at work due to your company’s policies. Please register at home if this occurs. If you receive a time out error message, your account has still been created and you should log in using the account details you chose at account activation stage i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Google, Microsoft etc. Check if your invitation has expired as invitations expire after 14 days from the date of the email. If you are unable to open the link when using the ‘click here’, please copy and paste the link into your browser. You will also have to copy the invitation code from the email when prompted.
Please ensure you are entering the correct date of birth and in the correct format that is being requested e.g. 03/10/2004. This is for your child who attends RBA and not your date of birth.
If you are using Office 365 at work, ensure your IT administrator has granted you permissions. If you are receiving an Unauthorised Access error message, ensure that you are logging into SIMS Parent with the account with which you registered i.e. Google, Facebook, Twitter etc. Ensure you are entering the correct username & password.
This issue tends to occur when two or more users share the same computer or device. To sign out of the incorrect account, the user should visit the account provider’s web page (e.g. Google, Facebook, etc.) and select the ‘sign out’ option. Close the browser completely, open a new browser window and log into SIMS Parent using the correct account details.
If you do not have an account listed already, you can follow either of the links below to create an email account for the app.
