As a school leader you will want to know what’s working in a school and what isn’t – but with so much going on, it’s often hard to have everything you need all in one place.
SIMS gives you an overview of everything that’s happening, so you can provide the evidence you need and communicate effectively with your staff, without having to pull lots of information together. With real-time data, you can also track the impact of the strategies you put in place. You need the information and the tools to make decisions about the issues that matter.
Continuing with the success of last term’s free webinars Capita are running further webinars this term. These 30 minute webinars will provide you with an insight into how SIMS can help you to manage the plethora of changes to primary education over the coming years.
