Gumley House School FCJ

Parent Messaging

Parent communication for smart devices
We are proud to announce that Gumley is now using the SIMS Parent App to keep parents/carers in touch with the school with an up to date calendar, term dates and push notifications which allow us to send you short messages reminding you of key dates and events.  Additionally we can now inform you of incidents such as snow days and closures without you having to first check on the school website. A key feature of the Parent App is the ability to check your child's progress via their monitoring reports. The App also allows you to view your child’s attendance, achievement points, and also has a secure data collection sheet, allowing you to make changes to your personal contact details should they ever change.

If you do not have access to the Parent App, please email us at

The app is available through the App Store and Google Play.

Parent e-mail communication
At Gumley we use a secure email system, ParentMail, as a means of communicating key information to parents/carers on a regular basis. This will include reminders of school events (such as parent/carers' evenings) and calendar updates.  In the event of a school closure (adverse weather, for example) parents/carers will be notified by this system.

The email address we use for parent/carer messaging is the one you submitted when first signing up to Gumley, unless you have notified us otherwise.  If you wish to check or update the email address through which you are contacted, please speak to reception via the main switchboard.

Please be assured that both ParentMail® and SIMS Parent App are registered with the Data Protection Registrar and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
