A school’s management information system (MIS) holds a vast amount of data, which if accurately maintained can be used to inform school improvement strategies and support a wide range of school management activities including processing statutory returns.
By the end of the course you will have the skills necessary to use SIMS in a school office environment including:
finding your way around SIMS
looking up pupil information
dealing with new arrivals
making day-to-day adjustments to pupil details
extending pupil details for a range of needs
managing historical records
adding an agent or an agency
dealing with leavers
sending a letter home
running basic reports from SIMS.
The school office is the hub of day-to-day pupil data management. Using typical scenarios encountered on a regular basis, this course takes a new user through the main procedures for maintaining accurate and useful data within the school’s MIS.
The course is aimed at new school office users of SIMS, new recruits or staff with new responsibilities in school. No previous knowledge of SIMS is required
