Effective leadership is crucial to the success of any organisation and schools have a duty to ensure every child gets the support they need to reach their full potential. If your aims are to focus on driving school improvement, you want to ensure your leadership team targets the specific issues that need addressing in school.
With SIMS you can view, report and analyse detailed information such as the latest pupil assessment results or your school's financial position. This information can then be used to assist the decision making process and help you make the right choices for your school.
"If you can’t see it, you can’t measure it. If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it".
Drive Greater Achievement
Every child has the potential to achieve more and you can help make this happen in your school. The tools available within SIMS give you a complete picture of how each child's learning is progressing. Pupil grades and assessment results are recorded and stored electronically in SIMS. This information can be used to produce individual or class achievement reports for analysis or comparison against past performance or national guidelines.
Tackle truancy and lateness head on
Truancy and persistent lateness can disrupt the culture of a school. With the right information you can see where problems exist and put measures in place to address any issues. With SIMS you have the ability to record and analyse attendance marks for AM/PM attendance and for every lesson on the timetable. The standard reports in SIMS enable you to produce detailed analysis of attendance history in order that you can keep up to date with any trends developing in your attendance figures. Support poor behaviour and outstanding achievement in class.
"The implementation of SIMS in our schools is helping us move towards strategic management of data and detailed analytical reports.".
A complete record of pupil behaviour and achievement can be maintained throughout the school day as teachers can record such instances directly into SIMS from a classroom PC. This is a beneficial tool in helping you manage behavioural incidences effectively in your school. Using this information, SIMS quickly identifies any patterns of behaviour that might require discussions with pupils or parents and enables you to record student achievements such as sporting success or academic awards.
Strive for teaching excellence
Good teaching and learning is often a key factor at the heart of any school improvement drive. By recording pupil achievements, you can measure individual or group performance against national guidelines and the school's own historical results. This assists you with highlighting teaching practices that are improving learning outcomes so that they can be replicated across the school to raise achievement.
