The Parent portal – What is it?
The Parent Portal is part of the school's intranet and is the place parents can go to access school-related information about their children.
Access is only available to parents of students from the start of their schooling at Smith's Hill High School. Each year parents of students starting year 7 will be sent an invitation in week 2 term 1 to join the portal.
The portal is now cloud-based and, after creating an account (see instructions below) click here for the URL. This link will take you to our Student and Parent Portal sign-in page.
While most browsers will work, the site is optimized for Google Chrome so the use of that browser is recommended.
Details for creating a login account can be found in ‘Create a Parent Portal Account – Step-by-Step Guide'.
Parents also receive an email from the School with instructions on how to create their login accounts and the student keys they have to enter to link their logins to their children at the School.
The portal offers parents a number of online services, including access to their child's academic results and reports, attendance records and timetables. It's also used for making appointments with teachers on the occasion of Parent-Teacher Interview evenings and for contacting them, in general.
Explanations for a child's absence from school (or lateness to school) can also be made conveniently, online, through the portal.

Student can access the Sentral portal by using their DEC username and password.
Students are reminded that when logging in to a school device from home that they need to enter their username as follows: username@detnsw
