SIMS Learning Gateway for Secondary Schools
Most of the information parents, students and teachers want is already in your SIMS system but you could make it easier for them to obtain. With SIMS Learning Gateway, real-time information is accessible to all those who need it, anytime, anywhere - at the click of a mouse.
SIMS Learning Gateway provides secure online access to your school's information 24/7. With it, your staff are able to work more flexibly, parents are better engaged and students are encouraged to drive their own achievement.

When teachers need a quiet place to work or to access student records in the classroom, the Gateway ensures the information they need is at their fingertips via a secure connection over the internet. Whether writing pupil reports, updating achievements records or checking a student or colleague’s timetable, it's easier for your staff to work together to boost your students’ achievement.
Parental engagement is vital to children’s academic progress and is required under the Ofsted framework - with the Gateway, parents can log on from any PC or tablet to access the information they need to support their child’s learning, including attendance and student progress. By publishing student reports online, your school could save up to £4,000 per year on printing and postage costs.
By providing students with equal and shared access to their learning data, the Gateway also encourages students to work more independently, allowing them to track their own learning targets.
The SIMS Homework Diary further extends the benefits of the Gateway by allowing parents and students to see what homework has been set, improving communication between home and school, and helping involve parents in out of hours learning. Sharepoint announcements could even be configured to notify parents when homework is complete.

"When we asked parents what they wanted from school, to improve their engagement, they told us that students could access things online so why couldn't they? We purchased SIMS Learning Gateway to securely share information from SIMS. We've seen an improvement in attendance and greater participation."
