What is the difference between Prime Parent and Parental Responsibility?

Prime Parent

This is a Schoolcomms term, referring to the child’s ‘main contact’. When you set your import settings, you will decide which Priority groups from SIMS you want to make your Prime Parents.

Parental Responsibility

This is needed for parents to be able to give consent, view online reporting information, see balances, and make bookings on School Gateway. Parental Responsibility needs to be applied in SIMS (Section 5 of the pupil record) and then an import will need to be run in Schoolcomms for this to update.
