As a senior leader you need to see a clear and complete picture of your school to inform decision-making and provide evidence of your successful strategies. SIMS helps by giving you access to real-time assessments of how your school or group is performing, enabling you to demonstrate progress and success, as well as identifying where further development is needed.
Track progress, identify trends and evidence interventions
SIMS offers flexibility which means that your school can assess in the way that best suits you. SIMS Assessment is adaptable and gives teachers and senior leaders access to your curriculum to track progress whichever way you choose.
Use SIMS Discover for visual analysis of your data, with drag and drop graphs that allow you to quickly identify trends in pupil data over time. It is easy to track attainment, attendance and vulnerable pupil data, and share these insights with your senior leadership team, governors and inspectors in an easy to read format. You can also analyse and report on the outcomes and cost-effectiveness of your interventions using SIMS Interventions.
All of these modules are included as part of your annual entitlement and available ‘on the go’ with Hosted SIMS.
