PORTAL AND APPS

LCIS uses a range of technologies to enhance learning. Through carefully selected online platforms, parents can be fully involved in their children’s education.

SchoolsBuddy
Extracurricular Activities
To register your child for our extracurricular activities, as well as for our after-school-care, please log in to our SchoolsBuddy platform. Parents who are new to the school will need to create a login. In SchoolsBuddy, parents can find information about all the activities on offer.
Tapestry
Early Years
Tapestry is a secure, easy-to-use online learning journal, where staff and families celebrate our Early Years students’ learning and achievements. Tapestry supports parents as they engage with their children’s education, and links to observations and assessments of students are shared with their parents on a regular basis.
Seesaw
Primary
We use the web-based app platform Seesaw to create regular digital portfolios of our Primary students’ learning. We share these with parents, who can leave journal entries of constructive feedback about their child’s learning and development. The announcement feature enables teachers to share reminders of class events and the year group’s weekly newsletter, which summarises what the children have learned and what’s on the agenda for next week.
ManageBac
Secondary
Our Secondary students use ManageBac to support their curriculum mapping: assignment setting, homework, and assessments, and tracking and reporting their progress. This unified system ensures a consistent platform, as well as a seamless and integrated experience for teachers, students, and parents to manage every aspect of the curriculum.
