What is a QParents Account Owner (QPAO)? 

The school will nominate one parent or legal guardian for each student to be the QParents Account Owner (QPAO). The QPAO will be able to register for QParents to access and manage the student’s information online. A student’s QPAO will be able to view the student’s information and submit requests to update some of the student’s details. 

The QPAO will also be able to invite other people (such as another parent or family member), to view the student’s information. Once invited, these people can register for QParents as “delegated viewers”. A delegated viewer can see the student’s details, but cannot make updates. 

Registering for QParents 

You will receive an invitation email from us containing your unique invitation code. Simply follow the instructions in that email to complete the QParents account registration process. 

If you want another parent to be the QPAO, you can advise us via email and we will send them an invitation email or letter with their own unique invitation code.

Identity verification 

When registering as a QPAO, you will need to verify 100 points of identity documents online. The 100 points can be made up of documents in the following list:

Australian Passport

50 pts

Australian Marriage Certificate

40 pts

Australian Driver Licence 

50 pts

Australian Citizenship Certificate

40 pts

Australian Birth Certificate

50 pts

Change of Name Certificate

40 pts 

Medicare Card

20 pts

Australian Visa (foreign passports)

If you only have 60-90 points of the above ID documents you can still register for QParents, but we may call you into the school to provide us with some extra documentation like a rates bill, energy bill or other documents that may contain your name and address.

Where does the information about my child come from? 

All of the information that is presented in QParents comes from the IT system that is used by all Queensland state schools.  Schools will continue to manage student information in this system, and the information will be extracted and presented in QParents. 

Will my child’s information be secure? 

Yes. QParents is a secure portal that meets strict industry standards. Only people with the right to access information about their child will be given an account; no one else. 

If you don’t want to register for QParents, your account will not be created and your child’s information will not be made available through QParents.
