The most up-to-date information about SLG will always be posted on this page – please check back as we add functionality over time. You can read the basic guidance sheet for Parents/Carers by clicking this link, particularly regarding how to access reports.

We have had a few enquiries from students asking for SLG passwords and usernames. Please note that SLG accounts are for parents / carers; we cannot provide login details to the students themselves.

If you’re having trouble accessing your daughter’s report, the basic steps you need to carry out are:

If the Student Dashboard reports “Information not available” – Capita advise clearing your browser’s history including cookies.

If you’re not happy about doing this, you could also try accessing SLG from another machine if one is available.
