SIMS Summer release is available now

Posted  6th July 2016

The SIMS Summer Release is now available and includes several enhancements and new areas of functionality.

We are currently contacting schools to book a time to carry out the upgrade remotely.

Here are some of the new features for Summer:

Key Stage 4 analysis

There is now the ability to link exam results into assessment aspects to compare analysis on like-for-like calculations. This uses the same analysis tools to allow for the review of internal assessment tracking and exam results in one place. There are also some new result sets which have been incorporated into the mapping tool to support further analysis within the KS4 resources allowing for the comparison of different outcomes within the same analysis report.

Managing reports for other users

Administrators can now manage reports for other users. So, for example, if someone has left the school and the reports they created no longer work, these can be removed.

View your classes’ conduct on the SIMS Homepage

As part of the Summer Release, it is now possible for Heads of Department or class teachers to see any behaviour or achievement that has been logged for their class or classes in department, straight from the Homepage. Once SIMS has been upgraded in your school you can check out all the changes and new features in detail by clicking the Documentation button on the Home page then selecting Latest Release information. If you know when you would like the upgrade run for your school, please contact our MIS Service Desk on 0345 222 1551 • Option 3 as soon as possible so that we can book it in. If you prefer, you can email us at with details of your preferred date(s).
