Arbor - New Management Information System

Dear Parents/Carers

Since we returned to school in September we are using a new management information system called Arbor.

The school will now the Arbor parent portal to send messages to parents, as well as letters and other school information.  Parents will now use the Arbor parent portal app to pay for dinners, milk, snack, uniform, trips and events.  Parents will also be able tp sign up for clubs and actitives in school, as parentmail and My ed will no longer be used by the 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.

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).
