Coming Soon..New Parent Portal

Chislehurst School for Girls will soon be launching our new Insight Parent Portal. Insight is a secure on-line system, which means that parents/carers are able to log onto the website using a personal username and password to access up to date information about their child’s progress in school. Through a number of on-screen modules you will be able to see, at a glance, information about attendance, attainment and behaviour and be able to access all school reports on-line.

Student School reports will now be issued solely over Insight. You will no longer receive a paper copy unless specifically requested.

Login details

Parental logins will be sent out in a paper copy letter that you will receive next week.

Once activated, the portal will generate login details for all parents/carers who are listed as primary contacts of students in our SIMS database. This will then send out an email to you with the details for you to log in. If you would like to add a primary contact for access to Insight, or if you would like to update any of your contact information, please contact the School office

The Insight Parent App

An Insight app can also be download for your phone or tablets either from the Apple App Store or from the Google Play store. The Insight app works just like the website but gives you the information you need on your phone at a quick glance. You will be able to access this, on the go, anywhere, anytime.

Contact Details

We already check annually that we have the correct contact details for you, your family, and any other person we should contact in an emergency.  The Parent Portal will allow you to update those ‘Personal Details’ at any time yourselves which should further improve communications between home and the School.

Attendance and Reporting Absence

Insight Parent Portal is designed to be a convenient way for you to monitor your child’s attendance.  Daily registers (morning and afternoon) will record your child’s attendance ‘live’ for you to see at any time. If your child has been absent because of illness you can use the Parent Portal to notify us of the absence on the ‘Report Absences’ page. If your child is unwell, you can notify the school via the portal before 8.30 am. However, if you are unable to access the Portal, please telephone the school to let us know in the normal way. You can even notify the school of planned absences through the portal in the future for medical appointments etc.

Lessons, Rewards, Exams and Behaviour

Insight Parent Portal will also provide you with up to the minute information about your child’s timetable and even rewards and sanctions from class to class. Information about detentions or achievements will show up on your portal feed in real time.

We hope that you will find Insight a useful tool for being more involved in your child’s school life and that you find it very easy to use.
