Exhibition:             Bett 2015, 21 – 24 Jan 2015 – ExCeL, London
Exhibitor:              Capita SIMS
Stand:                    B260

Capita SIMS is on stand B260 at Bett 2015 to unveil the new SIMS Teacher app which ensures teachers are never tied to a desk to record assessment marks for students ever again.

Using a tablet, teachers can award appropriate marks for students’ work on the go, whether they’re in the classroom, drama room or out on the sports field.

Once a teacher enters their login details, the SIMS Teacher app intuitively knows the time, date and which lesson they are taking. It also shows the name and picture of all students in a particular class – a little helping hand for teachers at the start of a new school year.

What’s more, if a teacher is on a field trip, they can record attendance and assessment details for individual students. Once they return to school, the app will synchronise with its SIMS management information system (MIS), ensuring crucial information can be captured wherever and whenever teaching and learning takes place.

Phil Neal, managing director of Capita SIMS, says: “Teachers have repeatedly told us that they want to be able to enter information as students work. Many feel entering assessment marks at the end of the day leaves the whole process feeling quite disjointed.

“With our app, all the information is instantly uploaded to a school’s SIMS MIS which 22,000 schools already use, so the school always has the most up-to-date information when they need it. More importantly, it allows teachers to focus on what they do best – teach.”

The SIMS Teacher app simplifies key classroom activities and reduces the time teachers spend on administration.

Phil Neal continues: “In just a few taps, staff can record attendance. It also allows staff to identify exactly how late individual students were to class, ensuring their full attention can be given to the lesson in hand. And, by providing access to timetables and student information, they can have all the data they need to ensure everyone achieves their full potential.”

The data used by the SIMS Teacher app is encrypted. So, schools can be sure that all confidential student information is secure.
