Arbor App

We’re using Arbor’s free Parent Portal and Arbor App

We are excited to announce that we have now moved our Management Information System to Arbor.

Adopting Arbor will allow us to communicate with you more efficiently, better still it's completely free! We are really looking forward to getting started with Arbor and invite all our parents to familiarise themselves using the link below.

Getting started - Log into the Parent Portal and the Arbor App

Arbor also offers access to many training resources which are completely free for you to make the most of! These can all be found here.

We will send further communication on the parental app and how to register in the coming weeks, please look out for this information and register your child when prompted.

We hope you are looking forward to using this new feature as much as we are!

If you have any queries please contact the School Office or email

Kind Regards

We’ve chosen Arbor to help us manage our school.

Arbor is a simple, smart and cloud-based MIS (Management Information System), which helps us work faster, smarter and more collaboratively as a school. The Arbor App and Parent Portal mean we can keep you informed about your child’s life at school in a much more accessible way. Log into Arbor to see and update your child’s information, get live updates and make payments or bookings on the go!

The Parent Portal works on Google Chrome (computer or laptop) and you can download the Arbor App from the App Store or Google Play Store on your phone (Android 5.0; iOS 10.0 and upwards).
