1 What every primary school leader needs to know about SIMS helping schools inspire

2 SIMS offers much more than a world-class management information system - we help schools inspire. We ve worked alongside schools for over 30 years, helping them to drive improvement and support every child to achieve. We help school leaders make informed decisions and give the whole school the tools to raise attainment; from tracking the progress of Early Years pupils and measuring the success of your Pupil Premium spend to helping you provide comprehensive evidence for inspections. This guide outlines how our complete range of services, software and expertise can help your primary school in achieving its goals. Contents: Driving improved teaching and learning...4 The insight for senior leaders...7 Keeping parents in the loop...8 Improving efficiency...9 Helping you go the extra mile...10 We believe that great teaching matters and every school can be outstanding. So everything we do is designed to enable more time for teaching, help raise the attainment of all your pupils and target interventions where they are needed most. That s why today SIMS is helping teachers support millions of children, helping them to achieve their full potential. We believe in improving outcomes, because you do. SIMS helping schools inspire

3 Driving improved teaching and learning We understand the quality of teaching and achievement of pupils at your school will always be your top priorities. With SIMS, you can be sure that every pupil s progress is tracked, so every child s needs are understood, helping you to raise attainment across your school. Tracking pupil progress School inspectors want proof that you re helping to close the gap between the performance of different groups of pupils, they want to see progress of pupils from baseline on entry and they ll need to know that you re spending your Pupil Premium budget effectively. With many pupils struggling to make the jump to secondary education, it can be a real challenge ensuring your pupils are ready for secondary school. SIMS helps you to track pupils attendance, behaviour and progress against other groups to ensure you re closing the gap. With real time performance data you can track progress, identify priorities and set targets for individuals and groups. You can also highlight performance against targets through colour coding. You can analyse progress for specific groups across a class, subject, year group or the whole school. Vulnerable groups, such as SEN pupils, or those eligible for the Pupil Premium are automatically identified in SIMS registers and marksheets, further supporting tracking information that s crucial for your next inspection. Teachers save 30 minutes every time they compile an assessment marksheet in SIMS Assessment Making Early Years progress tracking easier With the requirements to benchmark a child s learning journey at the start of their education, we understand your primary school wants to keep track of your pupils progress as easily and simply as possible. The new SIMS Early Years Assessment Resources, with APP grids and marksheets, allow teachers to effectively record and monitor the ability, attainment and progress of their pupils from nursery through reception and help support their transition into year 1. With SIMS Aspect Analysis and Discover graphs also included, schools and nurseries can easily track the progress of their early years pupils with a few clicks. So you can get a group overview or build a detailed profile of pupils development in a matter of minutes. As well as saving time for your Foundation Stage teachers, you will have peace of mind that you have a robust tracking solution in place and can measure the impact your school has had on children s outcomes given their starting points. For more information visit Behaviour management Poor attendance and negative behaviour can disrupt the culture of even the best schools, while rewarding good behaviour makes a significant contribution to helping you raise standards. SIMS helped Wistaston Green Primary raise attendance from 93% to 96.4% With the right information to hand, you can identify problems early and put measures in place for swift improvement. SIMS allows you to keep track of attendance and behaviour and to communicate key issues to staff and parents easily. SIMS instantly displays which pupils have not arrived at school or for a lesson, making it easy for you to inform parents by SMS or with SIMS InTouch. By recording behaviour incidents electronically, the SIMS communication tools automatically alert other teachers linked to a child when a behaviour incident is logged in SIMS. You can also examine patterns of behaviour throughout the school according to behaviour type, location, time of day, subject, pupil and teacher. SIMS Homepage give teachers an instant snapshot of current progress and conduct of all pupils SIMS TeacherView view a detailed summary screen for each pupil SIMS Learning Gateway online access to SIMS in the classroom or at home SIMS Assessment - record and report on pupil progress and highlight against targets through colour coding, so you can see who s on target School Improvement Programme let our expert consultants show you how to harness SIMS to drive improved teaching and learning 4 5

4 Effective classroom management With the number of tasks that teachers have to juggle during a school day, they need the tools that give them the maximum possible time to focus on teaching. Putting SIMS in the classroom makes it part of every teacher s daily routine, so teachers can focus on doing what they do best. Electronic registration, traffic lights on tracking grids, report templates and a teacher view on every pupil are the tools they need for every aspect of classroom management. Helping you to drive school improvement Our recently launched School Improvement Programme aims to help every school on its journey to outstanding. Our specialist consultants have all worked as senior leaders and have a proven track-record in helping schools provide evidence of improvement to parents, governors and school inspectors. Teaching and learning is at the heart of any school s improvement cycle and our programme is no different each step has been designed with that in mind. By working closely with our consultants, schools can learn how to harness their data to drive improved teaching and learning. Call to find out how SIMS can help with your school improvement journey. I was fully prepared for all of the inspectors enquiries as I had everything in front of me. They asked how the children on free school meals were doing and I could be exact. I was also able to show the exact percentage of pupils who had made six or more sub-levels of progress from Key Stage One to Key Stage Two. It was wonderful to have that information at my fingertips. Catherine Roberts, Deputy Head, Wimbledon Chase Primary School Electronic registration saves schools 3-6 hours per week The insight for senior leaders School leaders and governors should know what s working in a school and what isn t - but with so much going on, it s often hard to have everything you need all in one place. SIMS gives you an overview of everything that s happening in your school, so you can provide the evidence you need and communicate effectively with your staff, without having to pull lots of information together. With real-time data, you can also track the impact of the strategies you put in place. You need the information and the tools to make decisions about the issues that matter that s how SIMS can help. Providing the evidence you need You want to show inspectors that your school is wellmanaged, that you promote improved teaching and that you enable pupils to overcome specific learning barriers. With SIMS, you can do all of this and more. Everything you need to know about your school is at your fingertips. So you can identify your school s strengths and weaknesses and you ll know where you can make a difference. The power of whole school communications A school cannot be outstanding with good teaching alone. By using SIMS communication tools, your whole school can be connected by the information already held in SIMS. Developing your staff Engaged staff perform better. With SIMS, you can make sure your staff are involved in their professional development, so they will always know how they re doing. Holding all information on individual objectives and lesson observations centrally, you can build a complete picture of every staff member. You will also have the evidence to inform any decisions which you can link in with your school objectives.

5 Keeping parents in the loop When it comes to raising attainment, it s important that parents are involved in their child s school life. SIMS Learning Gateway lets parents into their child s world remotely, giving easy online access to daily attendance and attainment records. With their finger on the pulse, parents are more engaged and their children are too. The right information at the right time Parents evenings should focus on addressing the real issues rather than bringing parents up-to-speed. SIMS holds a vast quantity of information about every pupil, so why not share some of it with parents? Keep parents informed of their child s progress, achievements, attendance and behaviour, so parents can give children feedback too. Parents can also keep track of their child s progress on the go with our mobile browser view. Communicate quickly It can often be hard to get in contact with parents, especially if they re at work and cannot take personal calls. Whether parents prefer to receive a discreet text message or an , SIMS InTouch ensures that they are always kept up-to-date with their child s school life. SIMS also gives you the parent s information to hand, allowing you to communicate quickly and efficiently. SIMS Learning Gateway give parents access to information on their child SIMS InTouch send messages relating to a pupil s achievements, behaviour, unexpected school closures, unexplained absences, special educational needs and more SIMS Agora an easy and convenient way for parents to make payments. Parents can pay online for their child s school uniform, trips, events and more Parents come to parents evening with an understanding of how their child is doing. We can focus on the major issues relating to attainment, performance, attendance and behaviour. Parents can come with questions as they ve had time to reflect on the information they have received, and they know what they want to follow up on. David Loomes, Headteacher, Easington Colliery Primary School Improving efficiency With endless demands placed on all your staff, time and resources are precious commodities. SIMS helps your staff achieve even more, by lightening their workloads. Efficient management of your finances With school and academy finances growing in complexity, you need a solution to make things easier and to help stretch your budget further. SIMS Financial Management System (FMS) provides a picture of your school s finances to help ensure that resources are put to the best possible use. Busy finance staff can complete day-to-day financial tasks quickly and SIMS Financial Reporting Suite (FRS) presents your financial data clearly, helping senior leaders make informed decisions. 1,500 the amount primary schools say they ve saved by using SIMS Learning Gateway to report to parents Helping your teachers work flexibly It s important that your teachers have a good work/life balance.

The value of simplicity Unlike other MIS providers, with SIMS you only have to enter data once and you can use it many times and in lots of different ways whether it s to look at the progress of your gifted and talented pupils, monitor the attendance patterns of your Pupil Premium children or to look at your single central record.
