The portal allows you to securely access information about your child and communicate directly with your child's school.
Features of QParents

How will I get access?
The QParents portal is located online. Once registered, parents can login to the portal using their secure account details.
You will only be able to register for a QParents account if your child's school signs up to QParents. Once the school has launched the QParents program, parents or caregivers will then be nominated by the school as QParents account owners (QPAOs) for access to student information. The nominated account owners will then need to register with QParents to access this information.
Your school will also supply you with the registration requirements for QParents. You will need to undertake online identity verification and provide personal information such as your name and mobile phone number. During the registration process, you may view the Privacy Statement and Terms and Conditions in QParents for further details about information collection and use. For more detailed information or assistance with the QParents registration process, please refer to the QParents online help guide .
