We are excited to introduce our new Arbor Parent Portal system! The Arbor system has replaced School Gateway.
Please click here to read the Parent Leaflet for the Arbor Parent Portal. Please click here to read the Arbor Parent Portal Quick Guide.
Arbor is available on the web via a computer or tablet, or through the app that can be downloaded on the Google Play Store or iOS App Store on mobile or tablet devices. When accessing Arbor from a computer, we recommend using the Google Chrome web browser.
If you have more than one child at The Hart School, you’ll have access to information for all your children, all from the same login.
This system, which can be accessed via the Arbor website or through the Arbor App, will allow you to do the following things:
Receive and reply to messages from school free of charge
Change your phone number, address and contact information
Give consent for photo, data, medical and other permissions for your child
See your child’s attendance, behaviour and achievement data in real time
View your child’s daily timetable
Access your child’s school reports as they become available
You can see an overview video of how the Arbor Parent Portal works below.
It is recommended that you log in for the first time on a desktop or laptop computer, we recommend using Chrome as your web browser.
