SIMS Parent App
You can do this from Android or Apple stores.
You should have received a registration email last year but if not please contact the main school email address [email protected] waltham. sch. uk (which is on school website) and request a registration email link. Once registered it links your login to your child’s SIMS account.
You can use a familiar login like Facebook or your gmail account as your login once you have registered to make things easier and so you have one less username to remember.

Online Safety & Responsible Use
E-Safety Issues Cyber Bullying Cyberbullying is the use of new technology, in particular mobile phones and the internet, to deliberately upset someone else. Online Grooming is when someone builds an emotional connection with a child to gain their trust for the purposes of sexual abuse, sexual exploitation or trafficking. Sexting 'Sexting' describes the use of technology to share sexual and sexually implied content.
What do we do at WSFG E-Safety issues taught in computing and citizenship lessons. Impero is used to ensure students are making educational use of online services. Inappropriate use can be acted upon. The Internet is filtered to prevent access to inappropriate websites. No mobile phones policy – Students must hand in their mobile phone to the school office when they arrive in school.
At home Think before posting online. Understand privacy settings. Understand “ownership. ” If your child is being cyber-bullied save all evidence and report this to the school or in the case of more serious issues the police.
At home Set up a family email address that your daughter can use to set up new online accounts. Use nicknames for public social media. Use strong passwords.
Studying Sleep is valuable – no devices in the bedroom overnight. Social Media – cuts both ways for studying

A person who never made a mistake never tried When everything seems anything new. to be going against you, Albert Einstein remember that the The greatest glory in living airplane takes off against lies not in never falling, but the wind, not with it. in rising every time we fall. Henry Ford Nelson Mandela When we tackle obstacles, we find hidden reserves of courage and resilience we did not know we had. And it is only when we are faced with failure do we realise that these resources were always there within us. We only need to find them and move on with our lives. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
