What is RM Unify?
Your child’s school uses ‘RM Unify’ – a cloud based educational platform which allows teachers and students (and now their parents) to access resources on the internet easily. In a digital age, where access to online recourses is part of everyday-life, that means remembering multiple usernames and passwords. RM Unify makes this easier by allowing you to setup one username and password to remember for all of these services – we call it ‘single sign-on’.
Your child’s school will need invite you to access RM Unify if they have recently acquired a new application which offers accounts for parents. This could include offering you the chance to view data on the progress of your child or to keep up to speed with the latest news and announcements from school. RM Unify will provide you with easy access to these applications.
