SIMS gives instant information on each pupil to teachers, housemasters and form tutors so they can make informed decisions about the care of each child. Everything needed to know about a child can be found in one place, from their achievements and conduct to assessment results and extra-curricular participation.
See each child as an individual
The wealth of data teachers and pastoral staff can access on SIMS means they can support pupils throughout all aspects of their life. Information on achievement, extra-curricular commitments, punctuality, medical information and more can all be found in one place.
Deliver a stimulating curriculum
Offering a choice of qualifications, a wide range of subjects and additional activities like drama and cultural trips, make the education you deliver unique. SIMS can manage your detailed curriculum requirements, helping to ensure the maximum number of pupils are able to study their chosen subjects.
Support pupils' learning more effectively
Some pupils may have regular authorised absences to play in house competitions, sports tournaments or to take part in rehearsals for school performances. Lesson by lesson registration means all types of absences are monitored and can be followed up, as appropriate. For example, in the run up to exams, this information may need to be shared with parents.
When your pupils work alongside their peers, supporting one another, they make better progress. With the new SIMS Student app, they have the ability to view homework tasks, check their own timetable and receive reminder alerts from a smartphone, tablet or PC.
Involve parents in the journey
A child who is supported and encouraged by their parents is happier, healthier and achieves more. With the new SIMS Parent app you can keep parents informed about a child's school life and how they are progressing. With SIMS InTouch, you can send parents text or email messages about how their child got on in the latest test, or the final score of their hockey match, so parents can provide additional encouragement from home.
The Teacher app is great as it allows our teachers, for example the Sports Department, the flexibility of using the app for attendance, pupil information queries and mark sheets whilst on the go.
