SIMS Activities enables independent schools to efficiently manage extra-curricular activities such as sport tournaments, film clubs and theatre trips. It reduces administration time for staff, helps to improve parental communications and allows schools to access a holistic view of activities, whether these take place before, during or after school.
Register pupil attendance and access key information
The names of pupils expected to attend extra-curricular activities are populated on the register on acceptance. Supervisors can also quickly access additional information on pupils directly from the attendance register, such as emergency contact details and medical conditions.
Keep parents updated
A dedicated parent and pupil portal allows parents or pupils to log in from almost any device and track and respond to activity invites. Schools can quickly and easily notify parents of any changes to existing activities, such as if an activity has been delayed.
Track and manage activity memberships
It’s easy to effectively manage which pupils are attending extra-curricular activities by allowing you to accept, withdraw and place pupils on a waiting list. With instant graphical reports of various activities taking place, you can analyse data for attendance levels to see the popularity of each activity, and plan for next year.
Secure and flexible
SIMS Activities is available from almost any device, including PCs, tablets and mobiles - anytime, anywhere. The secure cloud-based software allows staff, parents and pupils to log-in through Microsoft, Google, Office 365, Facebook or Twitter.
