Parents Portal soon to be rolled out across all Glasgow primary and secondary schools

The Parents Portal service, which has been piloted in schools in the north-east of Glasgow over recent months, will now be rolled out to all Glasgow City Council primary and secondary schools from 6 June.

The Portal – details can be found at https://parentsportal.scot/home/ – offers 24/7 online access to a child’s school for a variety of school-related services, enhancing communication with parents and carers.

Through the Parents Portal, parents and carers can update their – and their child’s – details, view the school calendar, complete annual data checks, permission slips and consent forms online.

Future services will include online report cards, viewing of timetables and attendance, and placing requests – with more to follow.

Parents or carers – who will be contacted about the service by the school – must have a MyGov account to use the Parents Portal.  Parents or carers can find out more about the secure Myaccount service at https://www.glasgow.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=19869.

Councillor Angus Millar, Chair of Digital Glasgow, said: “The Parents Portal is a great example of how digital technology can improve people’s lives, in this case providing an easy-to-use link that gives the latest information on school activities and how children are progressing.  This is a very useful addition to the range of communication channels open between parent, carers and schools.”
