Portal Help for Parents
We have assembled the following information in order to answer frequent questions and to resolve some of the common issues experienced when accessing the Holmewood House Portal.
Logging into the Portal
The portal is accessed via the link on the website homepage, or via https://portal.holmewood.kent.sch.uk/.
All parents who have notified the school of their email address have been sent a username and password. If these details were not received or have been lost, please complete the password reset request form.
Your username must be preceded by holmewood\ so therefore entered in the format: holmewood\username. Please note that usernames and passwords are case sensitive, and should not include spaces.
The Holmewood House Portal is designed for use by pupils and staff. In addition all Holmewood parents can access the system.
On the main portal, parents are able to see bulletins and subject announcements, as well as accessing the photo gallery, team sheets and newsletter. The Shared Documents folder contains much information, such as minutes of parent reps' meetings, and revision sheets made available prior to each set of school exams. The portal also provides a link to PASS for Parents.
PASS for Parents
The PASS for Parents section of the portal is the parents' view of the school database. Parents can log in and see information relevant to their child/children, such as timetables, assessments and school reports. They can also check their own details and request changes if required. School reports and assessment grades for children in the Prep School have been delivered via the Portal for over two years now, and this will apply to Pre-Prep also in Summer 2013.
