Capita plc's (Capita) SIMS education software has been selected by City Montessori School (CMS) to enhance its information management capability.
The partnership will see Capita's market-leading software help staff manage data relating to more than 55,000 students and 4,500 staff.
Through the creation of materials such as standardised assessment templates and reports, teachers at CMS will be able to identify when they need to make interventions to improve outcomes. School leaders will be able to see aggregated information and receive early warnings when the data suggests individuals or groups of students could benefit from additional support.
The contract is aligned to Capita's strategy to expand its software presence in the UK and globally, harnessing its proven capabilities of delivering solutions which transform and add unique value to its partners and customers.
Chris Baker, executive officer, Capita Software, said: “Capita is an established and experienced partner to the education sector internationally. We are committed to delivering software solutions which provide efficiencies and improvements to our customers and look forward to using our expertise in technology to add value to CMS."
Roshan Gandhi, director of strategy, CMS, said: “We needed a reliable, robust and mature platform to meet the challenge of managing all the data our institution generates. We are confident in the capability of Capita's software to help drive efficient management of information across our campuses."
