Gladesmore Community School is enthusiastic about technology. We recognise the benefits of digital tools to increase engagement, accelerate progress and improve communication. The school uses a wide range of digital tools and pupils can access all of these at student.gladesmore.com. There are also video guides to support pupils' use of these tools.
However, there are a small number of apps which are central to every aspect of school life. All parents / carers need to be familiar with the following apps in order to support learning in school. We have included digital guides to these apps below.
SIMS App (Parent/Carer and Pupil Apps)
The SIMS Parent App allows the school to easily communicate with parents. Whether it’s sharing information such as attendance, or school reports, or sending reminders for homework tasks, all of the information is easily accessible from the convenience of their phone, tablet or PC.
To access parent version online on your PC or laptop, click on the link below:
If you are new to the SIMS Parent App, here is a quick overview of the functionalities and options you can access from the app.
Access to the SIMS Parent App requires an activation via an email request. These are normally sent out at the start of the academic year in September. If you have not received a SIMS Parent App invitation email or have any queries relating to the app, please contact email@example.com.
We also have an app for students and work in a similar why to the parent app. To access the student version online via a computer visit the link below:

Google Classroom is widely used across all faculty areas in school to provide an online learning platform for students both in and out of school.
