SIMS Parent App and School Gateway

SIMS Parent App

Silverton Primary School set up SIMS Parent App last year. This allows parents to see and update data held about them and their child, including contact phone numbers, address etc.

SIMS Parent App can be used through a web browser, or by installing dedicated apps on Android or iPhone.

In order to access the app, you will need to be the primary contact for your child and will need to have registered an email address with the school as primary contact.

Many of you will have recevied an email invitation from the school to review and update or confirm your details held by us. Please speak to the school office if you have not received an invitation, or do not know what to do.


Please note that all the functionality of SIMS Parent App is now contained within SchoolComms / School Gateway, so although SIMS Parent App is still live this is no longer the preferred method for checking data we hold about you and your child. Please use the School Gateway app instead.

School Gateway


From September 2019, Silverton Primary School started using School Gateway, the UK’s best parent engagement software, to make sure our parents are as closely involved with their children’s school lives as possible.

Initially we began using this for school dinners and payments (including payment and permissions for trips) but now all school related communication, including newsletters, go through School Gateway – it is the central hub of information for our parents – so to stay up to date with what’s going on at school make sure you download the app for free. Just search School Gateway in your App store and download. Simple.

Apple iPhone users, download the app here:

Android phone users, download the app here:

Your login details will be automatically generated using the contact information Silverton Primary School already has, so please make sure the details we hold for you are up to date. You can check and change these details by sending an email to (or by using the SIMS parent app if you have access.)

If you already have School Gateway for another child (for example at Secondary School) School Gateway will automatically link your child at Silverton to your existing account as long as the email address and mobile phone number are the same as those we hold for you.

If you have any questions or would like some more information, please see the School Gateway site here: Alternatively, contact the school office.

You can also login to the online version of School Gateway via this site if you do not have a smart phone, although we do recommend using the app if possible as it makes it far easier to get hold of parents when we need to.
