School Business Services are currently undergoing the Capita SIMS re-accreditation
The process for SIMS accreditation is very similar to schools undertaking an Ofsted inspection.
The assessment requires the following:
- evidence of our processes
- onsite inspection to observe what we do
- independent survey of our schools’ experiences
How does a SIMS support team achieve accreditation?
The accreditation process is designed to inspect all aspects of SIMS support. As part of the process the SIMS support team completes a comprehensive self-evaluation. A survey of all schools supported by the team takes place in order to seek their views. Minimum response levels and scores are defined for this survey which must be reached in order for a support team to achieve accreditation.
Schools will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org
Please check your junk mail as the email may go here rather than to your inbox. The survey will be conducted between Monday 16th and Friday 27th November 2015.
What if I don’t get the invitation email?
If you know that the survey is underway but you have not received an invitation with your school’s link please email email@example.com. Be sure to give the names of both your school and of your support team.
How long does it take to do the survey?
Completing the online survey should take 10-15 minutes, particularly if you have prepared in advance. It would be useful to seek the opinions of a variety of users in your school who carry out different functional roles to ensure that your school’s response is as accurate as possible.
Prize draw for participating schools
All schools who complete the survey before the closing date will be automatically entered into a draw to win a digital camera.
