To collect information from parents for your students starting in September, you can have parents add this information through the Parent Portal and Arbor App. Alternatively, you can use our data collection sheets and external tools such as Google forms, and input this data into Arbor yourself. We've outlined both options for you below.
Using the Parent Portal and Arbor App
Our Arbor App and desktop Parent Portal let parents check and update information, register their child for a club or trip, book parents evening slots, and manage payments all in one place. They can also check in on their child’s attendance, behaviour and progress, and read and respond to in-app messages sent by your school.
Not already using the Parent Portal and Arbor App? Make sure all your settings are just how you want them before switching it on by working through the simple steps here: Switching on Parent Portal.

Using data collection sheets
A data collection sheet can be sent out to a student's primary guardians allowing them to provide any information your school is missing, such as addresses and contact numbers.
