SIMS in detail

Focus on teaching

With SIMS your teachers will reduce the time spent on administrative tasks and be free to plan and teach fantastic lessons.  Tools within SIMS are positively received and confidently used by teachers who are able to do what they love most, teach.  SIMS also supports teacher retention through a reduced workload, improved communication and an easier way to manage pupil and school information.

Bring data to life

Multiple spreadsheets or information filed away on paper is now a thing of the past for primary schools using SIMS.  With the power to bring all the data and insights you need together into one place, SIMS makes school information easy to access and simple to understand.  It brings primary school data to life for informed, impactful decision making and saves time for school staff.

Get ready for reporting and inspections

If reporting takes hours, or it takes weeks to prepare for an inspection, SIMS lightens the load for schools.  Not only will SIMS store and quickly gather all the information you need, but it will also present it intuitively, making it easy to understand and analyse, helping you identify areas to showcase or improve on.  In addition to enabling schools to track performance in detail for reporting and inspections, SIMS also provides schools with the framework to safeguard pupils and provide evidence of doing so.
