• SIMS Assessment – Secondary – KS4 Resources

    icon sims flat

    This course has been designed to familiarise users with the new KS4 Assessment resources available within SIMS.

    To respond to the rapid changes occurring in national assessment, additional Key Stage 4 assessment resources are now available within SIMS. These resources enable you to calculate headline figures for internal assessments, whilst enabling you to identify students who are underachieving in any of the main key groups.

  • SIMS Staff Performance

    icon sims flat

    Staff Performance - gaining an understanding of the new staff performance functionality so that staff are always involved in their own professional development.

    This module enables you to use your SIMS database for all your Staff Performance needs. It simplifies the performance management of all school staff and engages staff in their own development.

  • So You Want To Work From Home...Or From The Beach, Or The Train, or Anywhere.

    Modern technology means that you are no longer tied to the office when it comes to doing your work. That is assuming your work involves sitting at a computer, writing documents, updating databases, sending e-mails and the like. If you're a lion tamer then, well, maybe not so much use. But let’s assume you fall into the former category, and you'd like to know what you can do at your school to be able to work remotely; from home, from the beach, the train or anywhere. 

  • Staff Performance Demo

    Below is a video of the SIMS Staff Performance Demo that was held at Highfield House in October 2014.

    Please note: If this video fails to load, access to YouTube through Smoothwall may need to be given to staff. Please contact Schools ICT on 01609 536086 who will be able to help.

    As I know you are aware, you are now required to monitor and record the performance of your staff to enable you to provide evidence of efficiency/progress etc.  SIMS SP Module is an extremely useful tool for setting Objectives, recording Observations, CPD and Staff Reviews.  Staff Performance can be used whether you currently use the full functionality of Personnel or just basic information is recorded in SIMS.

    This module would be driven by Heads/Senior Management Team with possibly a little help, during the set-up procedure, from your SIMS Administrator. 

    SIMS Staff Performance simplifies the performance management of all school staff and engages staff in their own development.  It provides a portfolio of evidence throughout the appraisal process.

    There are no on-going costs or Annual Maintenance, just a one off Licence fee of:

    £200 for Primary Schools

    £500 for Secondary Schools

    If you require any further information about this package or have any queries regarding the video, please contact Natalie Masters on 01609 536072.
