SIMS Accreditation Service

Our aim is to ensure that schools using SIMS receive the best quality support and training. SIMS Accreditation recognises those SIMS support teams providing high quality support to schools and aims to further develop the services they offer.

The assessment and accreditation of SIMS support teams aims to enhance the services schools receive, enabling them to explore the full capability of SIMS and make a significant improvement to children’s lives.

The SIMS Accreditation Service aims to:

  • assist SIMS support teams to deliver a high level of service to schools
  • identify good practice and development areas for the SIMS team to address
  • assure schools of the quality of service and support they receive with the knowledge that this will be monitored on a regular basis
  • ensure SIMS support is focused on the perceptions and needs of schools
  • provide a development plan to aid teams with further improving their offering
