You are invited to attend a Scomis User Group this term. Choose from one of five venues to best suit your location.

These events are to introduce you to new products and services, inform you about the latest SIMS functionality and update you on key forthcoming legislation with a special FREE GDPR seminar after lunch.
  • Are you up-to-date with the most recent SIMS functionality?
  • Do your teaching staff struggle to make the most of SIMS?
  • Would you like to be one of the first schools in the country to preview SIMS Primary – the next generation of SIMS?
  • Do you know what the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), enforceable from 25th May 2018, mean for your school?

Key Sessions at each User Group will include:

  • A SIMS Update Session – Make sure you are aware of the latest changes in the Autumn SIMS upgrade.
  • A SIMS Primary Overview – In this session we will introduce you to SIMS Primary, the web-based version of SIMS for primary schools due to launch in 2018.
  • An Introduction to the Scomis Desktop – an exciting new development from Scomis to remove the barriers to using SIMS in the classroom by providing a complete teacher–focused administrative platform which also enhances parental engagement.
  • A Scomis Service Update – providing an overview of other new services from Scomis including our enhanced Remote Backup Service and GDPR offering.
  • Schools Forum – your chance to raise questions and discuss them with Scomis and other delegates.
Each of the User Groups will take place on the dates and times in the table below and will be followed by a value-added, free of charge session in the afternoon which will focus on GDPR.
