    Arbor Parent App
  • What is Arbor?

    Arbor is a school management system that will allow you to view information about your child(ren) at Rudheath Senior Academy. The dashboard is the first screen that you will see. This gives a quick glance of the student’s daily timetable, behaviour points, meals, notices, current attendance and progress.

    Communications from Rudheath will be sent via Arbor and will be updated in the Parent App. You will receive a registration email in September when your child joins Rudheath Senior Academy.
