InTouch is a communications product that uses contact details and data already held in the School database (SIMS) to send email and text messages to parents (text messages not currently used). Parents who have supplied the School with an email address will be kept informed with everything relating to their child’s school life via InTouch.
A key benefit of InTouch is the ability to keep parents in the loop in an instant by sending email messages relating to a pupil’s behaviour, achievement, special education needs, unexpected school closures, parents’ evening reminders, unexplained absences – the list is endless.
For enquiries, please contact Mrs S Street direct:
By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
By telephone: 01707 643441 Ext 233
It is important to keep the School informed of any changes to your email address please advise via email@example.com. It is also advisable to add the SIMS InTouch email address (9195407@Capita-InTouch.co.uk) to your Safe Senders list on your email provider. Note! You cannot reply direct to this email.
Copies of whole school letters sent via InTouch can be viewed under Latest News or Ticket Information. InTouch letters to individual groups, forms or trip groups are available on the VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) once you have logged in (see link above) under the relevant department - for example, all letters relating to a History Trip to the Somme will be found under the Educational Visits area of the History Department. Please Note: Parents need to ask their children for their individual VLE Login Username and Password details to access (this is shared between parent and child).
