Finding Information on the SLG
Once logged in you should click on the Parents tab at the top of the page. You will then see the home page of the SLG Parent Site containing current SLG notices. On the left hand side of the screen are several sections that will be of interest:

My Account Page – it is advised that you visit this page the first time you log in and change your password to something more memorable. If you forget your password you will need to contact the ICT Support office at school to request it to be reset.

My Children Dashboard – here you will find the main information about your child(ren).  In the main part of the page you will see headline information including attendance. Please note: Sixth Form attendance data does not always take account of free periods and therefore the overall attendance mark may appear to be inaccurate.

At the bottom of the page under My Children Links you will find three sections:

Student Report – here you will find information regarding behaviour/achievements and timetable.

View Progress Reports – this is where progress reports can be found. Click on the arrow next to the current academic year and a list of available reports will be displayed.

Data Collection Sheet – Use this section of the SLG to check and update the information that we hold, including home address and home/mobile/work telephone numbers and email addresses. Changes are then submitted electronically and there is no need to telephone the school to advise us of those changes.

Useful Documents – Information to accompany the release of reports and other information published to the SLG can be found here.
