Insight app pilot

Here at Kenton we're always looking for new ways to provide parents/carers with information on their child's progress and we're delighted to announce that we are running a 30 day pilot of a mobile version of our existing service, Insight. This mobile version is available for users of Apple and Android devices.

What is it?

Insight provides you with real time online information about your child's achievement and behaviour reports, timetable and attendance.

You can already login to Insight via the web if you have requested a login from us, every parent/carer in Year 7 with an email address has already been given a login, but we are running a 30 day pilot of a mobile device version.

The mobile version provides you with the same information but once you've installed the app and set it up, it means you will be able to access information on the go.

How will the pilot work?

We are holding a 30 day trial of the Insight app and you will be able to access your child's information at anytime during this 30 day period.

Before we commit to purchasing the Insight app permanently, we will be asking all parents/carers for their opinions on the app and whether or not we should continue to use it. We will do this through an online questionnaire and we will advertise a link on this website and through our social media pages.

We'd love to hear your feedback during the pilot so if you have any thoughts or opinions you'd like to share with us before our questionnaire, please contact us using the feedback form at the bottom of this page or by sending an email to webadmin@kenton.newcastle.sch.uk

How to install the app

It's really simple and free. Just download the app from the appropriate app store for your device and when you open it, set the Insight web address to:

https://insight.kenton.newcastle.sch.uk

Next, simply enter your username and password to access.

Please note that using the Insight mobile app may use part of the data allowance for your mobile device. The speed of downloads in the app will also depend on the quality of your mobile connection.

I alredy know my login details for Insight

Excellent. Use the same login details to access the mobile version.

I can't remember my details or I need an Insight account

Please send an email to insight@kenton.newcastle.sch.uk with your name, your child's name and their yeargroup. We will then send you your login details as soon as possible

If you have a Safeguarding issue, please contact us as soon as possible and talk to a Designated Member of staff. If you would prefer to talk to our Governors about a Safeguarding issue, please address the matter to our Safeguarding and Child Protection link Governor, Ms S O'Neil

At Kenton School we strictly follow the principles and rules as outlined in the Keeping Children Safe in Education policy.
