Parent Access Module
PAM is an innovative parent-controlled electronic medical form for schools, clubs and other groups with a duty of care. It’s an electronic version of the paper-based forms we previously completed for excursions, camps, enrolment and the like. It provides parents with the opportunity to update medical information promptly and accurately while providing the school with instant access to the emergency information provided by you. We use the PAM app in the best interests of the children whilst also reducing the burden on parents to fill out the same information on multiple forms throughout the year.
Parents can use a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone to enter details including:
As part of our enrolment process, we will send you an email from the PAM system inviting you to enter the details for your child in an electronic medical form. From the school’s perspective, this information will only be accessible by the relevant teacher(s) for your child. However, if you choose, you will also be able to share this information with anyone else you trust with your child’s care – their grandparents, their child-minder, their sports club etc. Importantly, you choose who accesses this information.
Sacred Heart Primary School will also use PAM as a tool to send parents eforms and notifications. Examples of these forms are; Parent Consent Form, other permission forms, Direct Debit forms or reminders. In some cases you are required to download the form, complete and upload the form back to the school.
You don’t need to do anything until you receive the email requesting the information. Please feel free to contact the school if you have any questions.
Please note that it is the responsibility of parents to ensure their child’s medical and contact details are up to date and complete. In the event of an emergency the school staff will rely on the information provided via PAM.
