This blog covers the SIMS End of Year Procedures for the end of 2018/19 – it’s the final stretch!
I know all of you have started dreaming about the summer holidays, although hopefully by that time our lovely weather will have finally made up its mind so we can holiday at home and still get the sun!
Before then though let’s look at sorting the last big task of the year, the SIMS End of Year Procedures.
So little has changed that I don’t even need to change most of the words of advice from last year, and I do love it when my job is made easier, and I’m sure the same goes for all of you!
Below you will find 2 different types of the EOY documents; the Summary and the Detailed.
The ‘Summary’ is part checklist and part how to and is designed for the more ‘au fait’ amongst you, whilst the ‘Detailed’ one goes through everything in minute detail. Nothing has changed this year from last year so business as usual.
Don’t forget that all of this needs to be completed before you get back in September so try not to sit on it for too long, and also remember that you CAN start this now. There is no need to wait until the Summer Holidays to be doing this so crack on and try not to get stressed out!
Would you like SBS to complete this for you?
If you would like some help with carrying out these processes then we can arrange for one of our consultants to come into the school to help you out, or alternatively, you can take advantage of our Remote End of Year service where we can carry this out remotely for you to completely remove the worry.
