Parent Portal


AOL or BT Internet email account? Please see below.

The Parent Portal is an online system for Riddlesdown Collegiate parents where you can:

  • Update your contact details
  • Access your child’s reports
  • Book appointments for Parents’ evenings (at certain times of the year only) *

We recommend that parents provide unique and personal email addresses rather than a ‘family’ account. Each primary and secondary person with parental responsibility and a unique email address in our systems will receive a login to the Portal.

If you have forgotten your username or passsword, or have not received your details, you can use the reminder & reset facility on the Parent Portal page. Click ‘Don’t know your password?’ under the login box and enter the email address we have on file. You will receive a reminder of both your username and a new password.

For further technical support, please email:

* Only the primary contact may book Parents’ Evening appointments.

AOL and BT email users

As many other schools use the same facility, there can be many thousands of email messages generated each week.


Unfortunately, AOL’s anti-spam servers often block messages from This is out of our control.

We recommend you set-up a Google Mail account and set this as your main contact email for messages from the school. You can change this via the Parent Portal. You can configure Google Mail to forward messages on to your normal account which may help with this issue. See: for more information.


BT email users may find messages from us in the spam folder. We recommend you specify the above address as a ‘safe sender’. Please see: for further information.

We recommend you add to the allowed/safe sender/whitelist settings in your email settings. Most email providers publish information on how to do this in their help guides.
