SIMS Parents (SIMS Online for Parents)

SIMS Online for Parents enables you to access real time information about your child such as:

  • achievements
  • behaviour
  • attendance
  • school reports
  • timetables
  • the school diary
  • data collection (update your information, such as mobile number)

All school reports, assessment reports and examination information and results will be shared via SIMS Online.

Information in the app is made available from the School’s MIS System (SIMS) via a secure internet channel. We encourage all pupils and parents to register their SIMS account.

Registering for SIMS Parents

To access to SIMS Parents, you would first need to read and fill out the registration forms. The forms can be filled out digitally and must be completed by all parents wanting access (e.g. Mum and Dad would need sperate forms).

What happens when you have submitted the forms to the school

Once the forms have been processed, you will receive an invitation from noreply@sims.co.uk on behalf of the school to access your SIMS Parent account.

If you have not received an email for the Parent App or your invitation link has expired, please email SIMSParents@cathays.cardiff.sch.uk Please ensure you leave your name, your child’s name and your child’s tutor group in order for your invitation to be re-sent.
