SIMS Office User

Suitable for new SIMS users and for existing users as a refresher course.

Outline

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.

Description

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
recording exclusions
sending a letter home
running basic reports from SIMS.
