Feature of the Parent Orbit App
Below is a list of features that you will find when browsing the app.
The homepage will contain key information to keep you up to date on your student’s school day.
Push Notifications / Notification History
Schools will be able to send targeted notifications via the app, so that parents are only alerted to information that’s relevant to their child e.g., Extra-Curricular practice. You’ll also be able to acknowledge notifications and view and search notification history.
Attendance & Absences
Parents will be able to acknowledge and submit absences, as well as view the attendance history for their child on the go, making it easier for schools to ensure they have accurate and up-to-date information on student whereabouts.
Parents will be able to view their student’s information including General information, MCEECDYA information, View and Update Medical Details, Illness Log records, Extra-Curricular History, Email Class Teachers, View and download Academic Reports, and any other additional customised data the school has made available.
Parents will get access to their child’s electronic diary, as a day or month view, to keep up to date with their children’s activities. This includes a multi-student view for parents and the ability to include/exclude different calendar feeds.
Parents will have the ability to access and make payments for School Fees and Events & Payments via links to Parent Lounge.
Parents will be able to view their personal details, address information and login history, as well as submit updates to the address blocks. This will allow you to make sure that the school always has the most up to date and accurate information for contacting you, as well as provide you the ability to review what your account has been accessed.
