As announced in the press on 2 January 2019, parents will soon be able to access the Parents Gateway (PG) – a one-stop digital service that connects parents/guardians and schools on key administrative matters. It allows schools to send updates on programmes and activities. It also allows parents to perform administrative functions such as providing consent for their children to participate in school activities, even if the children are in different classes or from different schools. It will start off with announcements and the option for parents’ consent for students’ participation in activities where authorisation is required. More features, such as travel declaration and updating of contact numbers will be progressively added.
The PG App is now available for download on iOS and Android mobile devices. Parents can use their SingPass accounts with SMS 2FA or OneKey Token to gain access to it. Each parent will have an account and can access a child’s information simultaneously from their respective PG accounts. Even though both parents can access the app simultaneously, only one parent’s entry/option is required especially when the school asks for parental consent.
This free-of-charge app does not consume much data and it is also made available for legal guardians with Singpass access.
