What is SIMS?

SIMS provides school teams with the tools they always knew they needed but never had. Once implemented, SIMS surprises them with how easy and quick it is to efficiently manage school life and drive improvement. Whether you want to shake up your school MIS or just get more from SIMS, we can help and we’ll be here for you every step of the way.

All schools need to get the most out of any investment they make. The SIMS school budget tool has the power to give your teams more time by reducing administration and ensuring your school’s money and resources are put to the best possible use.

SIMS gives you a clear picture of performance in every area of school life – from pupil achievement to the quality of teaching, your budget management and cashflow.

Use SIMS to reduce hours spent on administration and free up time and talent for the most important job of all – providing an exceptional education.

It's easy to use and accessible from a smart phone, tablet or PC. It uses SIMS ID, a secure single sign-on function so schools don’t need to manage logins.

A cost-effective approach to computing, we can recommend a range of suitable tablets for schools powered by Apple iOS, Android and Windows 8.

Set Up

With a convenient app, everyone can quickly and easily access information from any device, in real-time, in and out of the classroom.

The SIMS Parent app is clear and easy to use, install and roll-out to parents. Single sign-on functionality removes the burden of resetting passwords from the school, and the app does not rely on schools having expensive infrastructure to maintain it.

It was easy to install and setup, and ESS were on hand with any support that was required. It was so easy to create accounts to get up and running and we also created a school email for parents to register their interest in the SIMS Parent app, which worked extremely well as it proved to be a validation of the email records we held for parents.
