Before we get started: 

Please note that even if you have multiple children at the school, you only ever need one account per parent. If you already have multiple accounts and sets of login details, contact the school who can fix this for you.

In order to access VSware, you will need a URL, username and password. If it is your first time logging into VSware, the school must give you:

  • Your school’s url. This is the unique web address for the school. For example it might be smithfieldschool.vsware.ie
  • Your unique username. For example this might be L.Adams
  • You create your own unique password via the login screen. Explanation on how to do this is below. 

Logging into the Parent App via desktop

**Please note that the mobile version of the Parent App is not yet available for download and will be released later in the summer, so it will have to be accessed through the Web (Desktop) App until then** 

If you are using a desktop computer or laptop to access the Parent App, you will not need to download anything. You can simply log in via your browser.

  • First, make sure you are using a modern browser. We recommend that you use Google Chrome, Safari or Firefox. We no longer support Internet Explorer. 
  • Enter in your school’s url into the browser search bar. The school's url is the unique web address for the school. For example it might be something like: smithfieldschool.vsware.ie
  • Don't include 'https://' at the beginning as this will cause issues.
  • Enter your username and password and hit Login
