Insight Parent Portal
Insight Parent Portal is designed to significantly improve the quality and accessibility of information for parents and carers.
Please follow this link to log on to the Insight Parent Portal.
How does it work?
It’s a secure online system which means that parents/carers are able to log onto the website using a personal user name and password to access up to date information about your child’s progress in school. Through a number of screens you will be able to see, at a glance, information about attendance, attainment and behaviour and be able to access all school reports online.
Because all reports (and not just the latest one!) will be available for you to see on the Parent Portal, this will be the primary method of sending reports home. We will notify you by text message or e-mail the moment a new report has been published on the Parent Portal. You will be able to view the report on-line, save it and print it at home if you wish. As you can imagine, this will provide a significant saving for the school and give us more money to improve teaching and learning in school. Nevertheless, if you wish to receive a paper copy all you have to do is notify us and we will be happy to send out a printed copy.
We already check annually that we have the correct contact details for you and your family and any other person we should contact in an emergency. The Parent Portal will allow you to update those ‘Personal Details’ at any time which should further improve communications.
Attendance and Reporting Absence
Insight Parent Portal is also designed to be a convenient way for you to monitor your child's attendance. Daily registers (morning and afternoon) will record your child’s attendance ‘live’. If your child has been absent because of illness you can use the Parent Portal to notify us of the absence on the ‘Report Absences’ page. If your child is unwell you can notify the school via the portal before 9:00 am. However, if you are unable to access the Portal, please telephone the school to let us know in the normal way. You can even notify the school of planned absences in the future for medical appointments etc. Please note, however, that it is not possible to request holiday absence through Insight as family holiday must not be taken during term time.
Lessons, Rewards, Exams and Behaviour
Insight Parent Portal will also provide you with up to the minute information about your child's timetable and even rewards and sanctions from class to class! There is a very helpful section which contains information about your child’s examination entries, exam timetable and results. If your child has any special educational needs you can check our record of these. There is also a handy calendar reminder of key dates in the term ahead.
PROBLEMS AND FEEDBACK
We hope that you will find Insight easy to use. If you encounter any problems with the system, please contact the Insight administrator, Deborah Elsom, either by telephone on 01275 332272 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
