How to access parentsportal.scot
In support of West Lothian Council's ambition to continue improvement in parental communications we have been working with national partners to develop a "Parents Portal".
The portal will be developed to provide parents with a clear insight to their child's education and to support transactional communications between parents and the school.
A national consultation exercise was conducted to include the views of parents in the design of the portal. View or Download the report on "Parent views of school engagement and an online portal".
Initially, this new service will introduce basic information about the school and will allow you to:-
- link to your child
- view school calendar
- view your child's class timetable (for pupils in secondary school) *
- view your child's attendance
- access Parent Zone and MyWestLothian
- access online school payments (iPayImpact)
As the product develops we hope to see more services introduced including the replacement of the current paper-based annual data check.
This is an exciting first phase of a new initiative which enables and creates a digital relationship between parents, pupils and schools. We have now successfully completed our pilot launch within the Linlithgow cluster of schools and rollout to the remaining schools will take place during the month of June.
Further details will follow as additional services become available, to take advantage of these services please sign up to parentsportal.scot.
On signing up to the portal, you will be able to link to your child and gain access to the above named services which are currently available. In order to link to your child the data you provide during the sign up process must match the data that your child's school holds.
