We have moved our current systems onto Online Scout Manager (OSM), this new system will help us improve our Scouting Administration which allows us to concentrate our efforts on delivering an excellent programme for you child. As part of this new system there is a parent web portal called Parent Portal, where you can see information about your child. You can also update/change your own child’s details and see what badges they have earned and see what still needs to be done.
For more information on the system please visit their website.
Existing parents will have received emails from us about access to the Parent Portal system (if you are new to the system or haven’t received an email then please let us know), we recommend you look at the site to make sure all you child’s information is correct and up-to-date.
Please note that it is a parent’s responsibility to ensure the data held for your child is up-to-date. 28th Ayrshire Scout Group, The Scout Association, it’s leaders and helpers can not be held responsible for any inaction or issue due to contact or medical information being wrong. You may maintain your child’s (or your own) information via the members Parent Portal page (preferred) or by informing a leader of the information.
If you have any questions, queries or help with the new system then please don’t hesitate to contact your relevant section.
