Parent communication for smart devices
We are proud to announce that Gumley will be using the SIMS Parent App which will be used to keep parents in touch with the school through latest news feed, calendar, term dates and push notifications which allow us to send you short messages reminding you of key dates and events. Additionally we can now inform you of incidents such as snow days and closures without you having to first check on the school website. A key feature of the Parent App is the ability to check your child's progress via their monitoring reports.
The app is available through the App Store and Google Play.
Parent e-mail communication
At Gumley we use a secure email system, ParentMail, as a means of communicating key information to parents on a regular basis. This will include reminders of school events (such as parents' evenings) and calendar updates. In the event of a school closure (adverse weather, for example) parents will be notified by this system as well as by text, if this service has been signed up to.
The email address we use for parent messaging is the one you sibmitted when first signing up to Gumley, unless you have notidied us otherwise. If you wish to check or update the email address through which you are contacted, please speak to reception via the main switchboard.
Please be assured that both ParentMail® and SIMS Parent App is registered with the Data Protection Registrar and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
