Parent Portal is a new digital service to help replace the traditional school bag run by providing direct communication to parents and carers through a growing suite of online services.

The portal has been developed to provide parents/carers with a clear insight to their child’s education and to support transactional communications between them and the school.

Registration for a Parents Portal customer account uses the MyGovScot (My Account) Service.  This is a secure and trusted service provided by the Scottish Government.

Watch the introductory video below which also shows you how to register for the MyAccount Service.  Parents/carers using iPay/iPayimpact will already have a MyAccount username and password.

There is also an introduction video below for all parents and carers who already have a MyAccount.

This new service will introduce information about the school and will allow you to:

  • link to your child
  • view school calendar
  • view your child’s class timetable (for pupils in secondary school)
  • view your child’s attendance
  • complete the annual data check process electronically
  • update your own as well as your child’s details at any time
  • access Parent Zone and MyFife
  • access online school payments (iPayImpact)
  • book your child’s parents evenings
  • report your child’s absence from school
  • view your child’s report card (where available)
  • view and authorise child’s permission slips for trips, clubs etc
  • view and access school social media sites and websites

This is an exciting first phase of a new initiative which enables and creates a digital relationship between parents/carers, pupils and schools.
