Arbor Communication System

What is Arbor?

Arbor is a school management system which allows parents and the school to communicate quickly and cost effectively via email and smartphone app. 

All communication at Howletch Lane Primary School is sent using Arbor. It is therefore vital to register to ensure you receive information about school events, trips, clubs, parents’ evenings etc.

But that’s not all…

Communication is just one the Arbor applications.  Parent evening bookings will also be available on Arbor once the school has organised dates.  You can update details such as address and phone number using the app.


Arbor has a very simple registration process.  You will receive an email login request from Arbor when your child joins our school.  We have provided a step by step guide link below.
