Integrated Curriculum & Financial Planning (ICFP) in SIMS

An MIS reporting tool for ICFP

In response to the Department for Education demanding greater accountability in school/MAT spending in the current financial climate, there is a need to be able to verify that resources are being used in the most efficient way and are meeting the planned curriculum. Capita - in association with ASCL - has produced a series of resources which will enable schools, academies and trusts to calculate key financial and curriculum figures by combining data from SIMS and their financial package. These resources are driven by PowerBI. The tools create a report which provides key figures and statistics and quickly enables various parameters to be changed and to see the effect. It provides the best results for schools using a timetable and who have contract data stored in SIMS.
