Tidy up time

Tidy up time

Posted  12th January 2017

Although Census time allows schools to update a lot of information held in SIMS, the same old data issues often persist (contacts not showing correctly, no little houses, names in upper and lower cases to name but a few).

Our School Housekeeping service is designed to ensure that your pupil data is tidy and make it more efficient to use. This service is delivered for your school remotely via our SIMS Service Desk so no need to find a spare desk or computer for one of our team to work on either.

All of our our SIMS Remote Services are designed so that our experienced team can carry out the processes for you; leaving you and your admin staff free to focus on other tasks.

Other Services we can offer include:


End of Year

Includes all of the essential administrative tasks including setting up the new year pastoral structure, preparing registers for the start of the year and ensuring records are complete and up to date. Download PDF →


School Census

Includes a full check of your SIMS data to make sure it is accurate and complete, highlighting any omissions in your data prior to Census date. We can also go on to produce a dummy return and summary report so you can check it against known school data. Download PDF →

Customers can use their SLA visits for these services should they wish. However, you do not need to be an existing SBS customer to book any of these services. Take a look at the Remote Services page for more detail on these and the other options available. Contact our SIMS Service Desk on 0345 222 1551 • Option 3 or email MISservicedesk@schoolbusinessservices.co.uk to discuss this further or to book a service.
