Connect for Parents

What is Connect?
Now more than ever, being connected with your child(ren)’s learning community is vitally important.

Once you join Connect, you will be able to see information specific to your own child or children such as:

  • Notices from the school
  • The classes in which your children are enrolled
  • Class calendars
  • Week by week attendance information
  • Work provided on Connect for your child
  • Notices from classes.

Developed by the Department of Education WA for staff, students and parents in public schools, Connect is an online environment integrated with existing Department systems and services including digital resources, Western Australian Curriculum, email and Reporting to Parents. Invitations to join Connect have been sent to the email address provided to the school by you.
Please note that class use of Connect will vary depending on computer availability for students at school and the nature of the subject.

How to access Connect
Upon registration, parents will be given their own secure login to Connect through the school.  This will be a P-number as a user name.  You will be provided with an opportunity to create a password of your choosing.

The web address to access Connect is http://connect.det.wa.edu.au.

If you have multiple children, you will only need one login – even if your children attend different public schools.You will require Internet access and a computer, tablet or smartphone device.

Student Access to Connect
You can support your children not only in accessing any Connect classes available, but helping them to log on to Connect.  To do this, they use their school user name and passwords.  Typically, their user name is formatted as Firstname.Lastname (for instance, Fred.Smith), though some students do have numbers after their name (for instance Fred.Smith3).  Don’t worry if your child does not know their login ID or can’t remember their password; you can telephone the school on 08 6821 3000 and our office staff will be able to provide you with the necessary details.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get to Connect?
The website for connect is: http://connect.det.wa.edu.au or use any of the links on the school’s website.

How do I get my Username and Password?
You should have received an invitation from Spencer Park Primary School to join our Connect community.  There are a number of reasons why you may not have received an invitation to join:
– The school does not have a valid email address for you.
– Our invitation has been filtered by your email’s junk email filter.

If you haven’t received an invitation to join Connect, please telephone 08 6821 3000 email spencerpark.ps@education.wa.edu.au.

I didn’t get my Username and Password- what do I do?
Please telephone 08 6821 3000 or email spencerpark.ps@education.wa.edu.au to let us know about any Connect problems you have.

Do I need my child’s details to login to Connect?
No, parents and carers have separate Connect accounts from students. You must utilise your parent specific Connect account in order to view reports and contact teachers.

My child does not have a Connect account.
All students are automatically registered with Connect as soon as they are enrolled at the school.  Typically, student user names are formatted as Firstname.Lastname (for instance, Fred.Smith), though some students do have numbers after their name (for instance Fred.Smith3).

Don’t worry if your child does not know their login ID or can’t remember their password; you can telephone the school on 08 6821 3000 and our office staff will be able to provide you with the necessary details.

My child has no classroom or work in Connect, is something wrong?
Assignments, tasks, and homework show up in Connect once the teacher has uploaded them. Some subjects will have less Connect content due to the practical nature of the subject. The best way to contact a teacher is via email. You can email the school at spencerpark.ps@education.wa.edu.au.  The email will be passed on to your child(ren)’s teacher, who will then contact you directly by reply email or telephone.

What if my question is not answered here?
Please telephone 08 6821 3000 email spencerpark.ps@education.wa.edu.au to contact us for help.
