Parents are your school’s most valuable ambassadors. They share their views far beyond the school grounds so effective communication is crucial in helping them stay informed and engaged in school life.
Whether a parent is working at an office down the road or is at home 6,000 miles away, SIMS can help you stay in touch so that parents see the value in the education you are offering.
Keep parents in the loop – wherever they are
In such a technology focused world, parents want access to real-time information, wherever in the world they are based.
SIMS InTouch and our SIMS Parent and SIMS Student apps help you to keep parents updated on how their child is progressing. If a pupil receives an 'A' in their homework or you want to share news of an award for a sporting achievement immediately, a text can be sent to parents in a couple of clicks.
Involve parents in their child’s achievement
Parents play a vital role in boosting your pupils’ achievement so keeping them up to date enables them to better support their child’s progress. On the SIMS Parent app, parents can view their child’s timetable, homework diary and achievement all from the touch of a button. A clear dashboard gives parents an overview of their child's life, so they can provide support and encouragement to help their child reach further.
Simplify your admissions process
With SIMS Registration & Admissions you can analyse the number of school visits and see how these are progressing. Monitor which parents haven't attended an open day and if required, generate invitation letters automatically to encourage them to do so, to help increase the number of prospective parents visiting your school.
