Arbor Parent Portal

Arbor is a simple, smart and cloud-based Management Information System, which we have introduced at Great Baddow High School to help us work faster, smarter and more collaboratively with our parents.

You can log into Arbor to see and update your child’s information, get live updates and make payments or bookings on the go!

There is an 'Arbor App' you can download on your phone and a 'Parent Portal' you can access on the internet, through which we can keep you informed about your child’s life at school in a much more accessible way.

The Parent Portal works on Google Chrome (computer or laptop) and you can download the Arbor App from the App Store or Google Play Store on your phone (Android 5.0; iOS 10.0 and upwards).
