A comprehensive SIMS health check is provided to evaluate and ensure SIMS is used effectively and efficiently. A full report will be provided for the senior leadership team to show the areas where improvements and timesaving could be made. A Data for Improvement evaluation will be completed on the schools behalf and SBS will provide this in text and graphical information along with the SIMS Health Check Report. These reports can be used towards the MIS section of the School Improvement plan and are good evidence for Ofsted.
Your SBS consultant would expect to meet with the Senior Leadership Team to discuss the findings of the SIMS Health Check and agree the way forward for development of SIMS use within the school.
Our Housecalls are designed for you to be able to speak to our consultants, using their extensive knowledge of SIMS to gain some valuable hints and tips on improving how you use your system.
Our experienced trainers offer a wide range of SIMS modules training courses, covering Attendance, Conduct, Exams, Lesson Monitor, Options, Personnel, Reporting, SEN, and Timetabling. Other courses include Microsoft Office, FMS, Excel analysis and presentation skills.
Off-site services for End of Year including the administrative tasks, preparing attendance registers and allocating pupils to classes, freeing up your time to concentrate on other important tasks. Other remote service offerings include SIMS Housekeeping, School Census preparation and School Workforce Return preparation.
Working in conjunction with a member of the senior leadership team, our specialists provide a consultancy service for the modelling and construction of your school timetable. This service frees up the key members of staff at this busy time of the year and allows us to take the strain, whilst you reap the results.
The Capita addition of SIMS Discover (this is built into your standard SIMS licence, therefore no additional cost is involved) is an ideal tool for determining where the gaps are between different groupings of pupils and will help the school to monitor changes. SBS has consultants with the skills to assist the school to make the most of this utility and would advise on its use as an analysis tool.
