SLG (SIMS Learning Gateway) is a system that allows parents and students to have access to information that we store about our students. This system meets and surpasses government criteria for online reporting and has been fully operation at this school for well over a year.What information will I have access to?
We are continually working on improving the site and welcome any feedback you can give us to make it a better site for you to use. You will currently be able to see information about studentís attendance, achievements and assessments, as well as their timetable. You can also view the School Calendar, Options Booklet and the most recent Newsletter. As we near the main examination time, a copy of the Examinations Timetable will be accessible. SLG uses real-time data, so the information is always current.As a parent, can I see if my child has arrived at school?
Guidance teachers finish registration by 8:50am. You will be able to see whether your child has been marked as present. However, there are several reasons why the register may be late going into the system for example: A teacher may be absent and a register may have been done on paper by a cover supervisor. If you notice your child is not marked present, please donít hesitate to contact the ĎAttendance Teamí at the school on 01482 652622.What if I find a mistake in the information?
Data integrity is important to us, while we endeavour to make sure that all our data is accurate we realise mistakes are possible. If you have any concerns about the information please email the school at firstname.lastname@example.orgWho can access the information?
If you would like to register please contact the school via email at email@example.com and if you are entitled to view the information we will provide you with a user name and password. Many parents and carers have already registered and are now using SLG regularly. If you have more than one child at the school, you will only need to log in on one account to see the information for all your children. We are currently in the process of registering all our students too; they will only be able to access their own information.How secure is the system?
The schoolís IT Support Team has worked closely with Capita to provide a secure platform for this information. All the data is stored on secure servers at the school, and all data is sent over secure connection to the viewing area of the SLG. We have taken every provision to prevent this information being viewed by people who do not access to the site. Parents, carers and students must do the same. The following precautions should always be observed:
