Parentsportal transforms communications between schools and parents / carers, enabling and creating a digital relationship between parents/carers, pupils and schools. It replaces the traditional schoolbag run with direct digital communications, providing parents / carers with secure access to a wide range of online services and information about their child’s education – all in one place, with a single sign-in. This can include permission slips, annual data check forms, school payments, appointments for parents’ evenings, and notices about school events (the services available through parentsportal may vary – check with your school to see what’s available).
A parentsportal app has recently been launched to help make communication between schools and parents/carers even easier. The app gives you access to school services and information about your child’s education online, doing away with the traditional ‘school bag run’.
A YouTube video has been created which gives further information about the app.
Free Bus Travel
If your child is between the ages of 5 and 10 you can apply for your child’s free bus travel card via parentsportal which will only take a few minutes to complete and will provide a swifter response and delivery of the card to the child’s home address. It is the most simple and straightforward way to apply for children in that age group – go to parentsportal.scot to sign-up or login now.
Annual Data Check
It is critical that schools hold up-to-date and accurate information about your child. Parentsportal ensures that annual data checks are accessed by parents/carers on a secure site and your school will issue an update when it is time to login to parentsportal so you can complete it online – please see guide below (if you don’t use parentsportal a PDF version will be issued and posted using Royal Mail).
