Connect

Connect is an integrated online environment developed by the Department for staff, students and parents in public schools. Check out the short video clip on Connect at https://vimeo.com/102803473


How will parents access Connect?
Parents will be given their own secure login to Connect through the school. This will be a P-number as a user name and a starting password that you can change.

When you log on you will be able to see information specific to your own child such as:

• The classes in which your children are engaged
• Class calendars
• Week by week attendance information
• Assessments and evidence for your own child
• Notices from classes that automatically generate an email notification to you


If you have multiple children you only need one login – even if your children attend different public schools.


Participation in Connect is optional. If you would like to take part you will require internet access and a computer, tablet or smartphone device. There is no additional software required and your access is free.


To register for Connect, please read and sign the Parents Connect Registration Form and return to the school or scan and email the signed documents to arborgrove.ps@education.wa.edu.au. You will then be confidentially issued with your unique user name and password as well as access details for Connect. 

We hope that you enjoy the Connect experience and see it as an exciting new way to stay in touch with your child’s school journey.
