ParentMail Registration

Subscribing to the School Calendar



Firefly Login (for those who have already created their account)

Account Activation (for parents who are new to the school)

The school's Parent and Pupil online portal is called Firefly and provides a central resource with access to subject pages, latest news, upcoming events, clubs, pupils’ work and domestic information. Firefly provides you with a single point of information, which is accessible from anywhere. Only Newland House School parents have access to Firefly.

IMPORTANT: New parents to the school will not be able to activate their account until the first day that their child starts school.


ParentMail Login The school regularly communicates with parents via a service called ParentMail, which is a reliable email and text message communication system. Once you child starts at the school, you will receive a registration email asking you to create a ParentMail account.



School Calendar

Parents can subscribe to the calendar and view the calendar on their computer, iPhone or iPad. Once you have subscribed, changes to events and new events are automatically synced. Please follow the quick steps in the Subscribe to Calendar feature on the left of this page.


SOCS Sports Parents can access details of forthcoming sports fixtures and competitions, team sheets and historic results.


Booking Login

Parents will receive an invitation to access the booking system shortly before any planned parent/teacher evenings. When respoding parents will need to enter theirs and their child's details. It is important that you enter your child’s name in the same way as it appears on the school register – abbreviations or alternative names will not be recognised.

You will then receive an email confirmation with a link to enable you to book the slots you require with the relevant teachers.

Please refrain from booking more than one appointment per child with a subject teacher, as there are a limited number of slots.




Plan Social Login

Plan Social is a website that allows you to stay up to speed with the latest news from the Parents Association (The PA) and can be viewed from your smartphone, tablet or home computer. Through Plan Social you can sign up to help at PA events and can get involved as much or as little as you want.
