With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect in May 2018, schools will have new requirements around the way they use pupil and parent data.
Included within your SIMS annual entitlement fee, the SIMS Parent Lite app helps schools comply with the new GDPR data requirements, by providing a simple way to collect, manage and handle information by obtaining accurate data securely from parents.
Supports GDPR data accuracy
Collect the most up-to-date data about students and their parents, to comply with the GDPR requirement for accuracy of data.
Available on iOS, Android and a browser, the SIMS Parent Lite app provides a convenient and accessible solution for parents to electronically review and request changes to the data held on them and their children.
Schools have the ability to send notifications to parents, reminding them to update their details, reducing manual data entry and eliminating paper based data collection.
Safe data transfer
Utilising the power of SIMS ID, the SIMS Parent Lite app allows users to use an existing email account to login, removing the need for a school to manage user accounts.
Parents can provide additional information on crucial details such as medical information or dietary requirements, using the text information function, ensuring that personal information not previously held in SIMS is collected.
Supports data upkeep
When a parent has submitted a change request, automatic emails are sent to nominated SIMS admin accounts. Administrators are able to view previous requests and details of any action taken via the audit trail within SIMS.
How do I get SIMS Parent Lite app?
