With the return to school in full swing it’s easy to forget you need to re-enter your Pupil Premium ticks for this year.
Don’t worry though, you can download the latest Pupil Premium file from Key to Success using your DFE login. Once you’ve downloaded the file open SIMS and go to Tools | Pupil Premium | Import. Remember to tick the relevant boxes otherwise it will only show you the data, not import it, and then then hit that Save button!
Now here’s the important bit….this information comes from your January 2020 Census, so you may need to do a little manual updating too.
Why not use our handy Checking Report below to help you. This will show any pupil who has FSM or FSM Ever 6 that do not have Pupil Premium ticked. Simply go to Section 9 (Additional Information) of their SIMS record and tick the Pupil Premium box and save.
If this gives you any trouble, please don’t hesitate to call us on 0345 222 1551 • Option 3 or email MISservicedesk@schoolbusinessservices.co.uk. It’s what we’re here for!
