Schools Data Forum

We have a NEW DATE this month for our next Schools Data Forum. Our forum is free to attend and will provide information for Primary and Special Schools.

Our next date for primary schools is on Tuesday 24th November 2020 (10:00-12:00) and will be delivered remotely via Microsoft Teams.

Please note we don’t currently have a session planned for secondary schools, but if you would like to express interest in our next session we’d love to hear from you.

About our Schools Data Forums

These sessions are a great way of networking and being able to speak to other schools to see how they deal with their daily data challenges.

Hosted by Viv Reed from SBS, this month’s session includes:

  • Census Update for January
  • Question time with our experienced consultants
  • Software updates from Arbor, Capita SIMS Primary and ScholarPack

You can see the full agenda/timings and book your place via the following link:

Places are limited so schools are advised to book now.

If you have any questions please email training@schoolbusinessservices.co.uk or call 0345 222 1551 – Option 3.
