As a multi-academy group, you need a consolidated view of data from across your schools, that informs decision-making and enables you to demonstrate progress. SIMS SchoolView offers a complete picture of your schools' performance, new SIMS Finance provides consolidated financial reports and SIMS School Improvement Programme offers expert consultancy, as well as bespoke tools and resources, all designed to ensure you can drive improvement effectively across your academies.
A consolidated view of your group's data
SIMS SchoolView is ideal for academy groups looking for an intuitive solution to managing data more efficiently across their SIMS schools. Easy-to-use dashboards provide you with valuable insight into how your schools are performing by displaying an easy to interpret breakdown of key performance measures. It also streamlines the collection of data automatically from SIMS schools within your academy groups, helping you to make more informed decisions. SIMS SchoolView is simple and quick to set up, and saves hours of time and money on data collection and processing by reducing the need to re-input data held elsewhere.
Streamline your MAT's financial operations
SIMS Finance offers clear, graphical dashboards that show a consolidated financial view across your academies. Powerful reporting tools enable you to drill down into transactions to easily see where and how much is being spent, helping to highlight opportunities to benefit from economies of scale. You can also ensure you're getting the best value from suppliers while minimising waste, retain a consolidated list of suppliers with links to catalogues, determine certification and tolerance levels that support your financial regulations, make consolidated BACS payments via a central bank account and provide a single sign on for all staff.
Helping you go the extra mile
SIMS School Improvement Programme can support you in identifying, implementing and evidencing school improvement strategies across your multi-academy group. The SIMS School Improvement Programme Data Dashboard is a reporting service that allows you to automate reports to meet the needs of your group's central team and senior leaders across your academies. Ideal for groups that use non-standard Key Performance Measures, our team of School Improvement Consultants can tailor the service and tools to meet your individual requirements and improve the effectiveness of tracking pupil progress across your schools.
