By default parent data is NOT imported when you sync your MIS with Pobble.
Once you are happy all the pupil data has synced correctly, head back to your "School Dashboard", click the "Data" tab, tick the "import parents..." box as below.
Confirm that you have informed parents to expect the email.
On the next download we'll import the parent data and send emails to them all for parental permission.
The parent pull will then stop after each sync, giving you time to inform any new parents about Pobble (whose children join your school through the year, for example) before importing their data and sending an permission email to them.
