Parentsportal.scot is a digital service to help replace the traditional school bag run by providing direct communication to parents and carers through a growing selection of online services.
As parentsportal.scot is securely linked to your myAberdeenshire account it also makes it a one-stop-shop for digital services already available in Aberdeenshire.
On this page you can find out more:
Who can use parentsportal.scot
Access to parentsportal.scot is only for those parents or carers who have children in primary 1 to the final year of secondary and are already confirmed as a contact for that child. This is normally the person who already receives electronic information from a child(ren)’s school and completes the annual data check form.
If your child(ren) is about to start at an Aberdeenshire school or your child(ren) will be starting in primary 1 or secondary 1 from August, your school will inform you during their first term, when you can set up your account.

What you will see in parentsportal.scot
To start with, you will see basic information about your child(ren)’s school along with online services such as a link to paying for school meals and completing your child(ren)’s annual data check form electronically.
As we introduce new online services, you may find that some new online services either do not hold any information or do not appear to do anything. This is because we will be testing the online services before we activate it in your child’s school. Your school will keep you informed when new online services become available.
If your child is moving between schools
Is your child moving to a new school? If so, we can let you know what will happen in your parentsportal.scot account.
