SIMS Parent Lite & PAY360 (previously SIMS Pay)


When your child starts in September you will receive invitation links to the SIMS Parent Lite and SIMS Pay apps, a convenient way for you to update the information/data we hold regarding your child and make payments to school. You will be able to access these apps via your smartphone, tablet or PC – anytime, anywhere.

What will you find in the SIMS Parent Lite app:

  • Access to update your contact details, so we always have the most up-to-date information in case of emergency.
  • Consent for walking visits and permissions for use of your child’s image.
  • Medical and Dietary requirements for your child.
  • If you have more than one child at school, you’ll have access to information for all your children, from the same app.

What will you find in the PAY360 App:

  • A secure E-Payment solution, allowing payments online (we are a cashless office).
  • School meal payments.
  • Payments and Permissions for school trips.
  • School Fund payments.
