Connect is a safe and free learning, support and communications platform developed by the Department of Education WA for staff, students and parents in public schools. Connect enables parents to engage with their child’s learning easily and safely online. (A short video on Connect is available at https://vimeo.com/connectwa/welcome). Starting this year, Semester 1 and 2 Reports will be available for parents through Connect.
You will be able to log into Connect on any internet-connected device and may also receive notices from Connect that will be sent to you as either an email or a notification on your phone. A free app called Connect Now can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store and will let you receive Connect notices as push notifications.
If you have multiple children, you only need one login – even if your children attend different public schools. When you log into Connect you will be able to see information specific to your own child/ren.
Examples of the information you can access in Connect:
Semester 1 & Semester 2 Reports Notifications from individual teachers
Whole school notifications Attendance records
Classroom learning activities
We hope that you enjoy the Connect experience and see it as an exciting new way for you to stay in touch with your child’s school education.
