Sentral Parent Guide
A guide has been prepared to help families navigate Sentral.

​Sentral School Management System
Our school is excited to continue to develop the way we use our School Management System and Parent Portal as the primary means of communicating important information between home and school. We have been listening to feedback from the school community and have sought to continue to develop and refine the ways we engage and communicate with our school community. Those families with older children already at the school will be aware that we have been using Compass for a number of years; In 2019, we will be updating our School Management System and Parent Portal to Sentral, which provides families with access to important information disseminated from school, stored in one easy place.

As we continue to roll out the various features of Sentral, parents and carers will be able to access an increasing range of information about classroom learning and school community events. Our school will continue to advise families when each of these features becomes available. [b]However, before we can effectively start using the great features Sentral has to offer, we need to establish new accounts for all parents and carers of students at BNWPS
