Communication at Highwood

The school has three APPs which are used to communicate to parents and for parents to make payments for items such as uniform, dinners, trips and extended day. 


ParentMail is used for the following;

· Urgent messages to parents and club cancellations by text

· Reminders and copies of important letters by email

· Weekly bulletin by email

· Parents can use the APP to advise of their child’s absence

ParentMail is both web and APP based. You will receive a link to set up ParentMail when your child starts school. Please note that changes of telephone numbers must be accepted on the APP to ensure you continue to receive messages. Please ensure that you keep us up to date with changes to contact numbers and email addresses.

SIMs Parent APP

Please note that we are moving to a new Management Information System (MIS) at October half term 2022 so the SIMs parent APP will no longer be used. 

We will move to a new Parent APP from the new provider in due course.


This is our payment APP and is used for the following;

· Payment of school dinners

· Payment for breakfast and after school club

· Payment of wraparound care

· Payment of trips

· Ordering and payment for school uniform

· Booking of Parents evenings

SCOPAY is both web and APP based. Please contact the school office for your child’s link code to set up the APP.
