Writing school reports
With numerous templates, hundreds of students and unwavering deadlines, school report season can seem like a very daunting time of year. So, to minimise stress and ensure you have as seamless an experience as possible when writing schools reports, we offer a variety of features to help.
Populate and amend a variety of report templates in-house, each of which are designed to cover your specific reporting needs.
Liaise with our Reporting Services team if you need something more bespoke, and they’ll be able to build custom reports on request.
Write and log reports wherever you are with our iReport App, with full functionality on smartphones and tablets. Easy to set up and use, you can even check past reports and grades whilst you’re on the move.
With a wealth of features available, writing and submitting end-of-year and end-of-term reports has never been easier.
One of the most important parts of every school day, our Registration Manager takes the information collected at registration periods and feeds it back into the iSAMS system.
This includes lateness, reason for absence, or attendance outside of the traditional registration times. There’s also a handy feature so you can register the absence of multiple students at once in the event of a school closure or similar.
The module’s communication features include the facility to pass information to students or groups of students at registration time, or to identify and contact a student’s family based on specified attendance criteria. Plus, our range of customisable features helps you adhere to existing processes.
More than this, our iTeacher App means you can do all this and more via a more easily portable and accessible tablet or mobile device.
Building and maintaining positive relationships with parents and students is a crucial aspect of teaching, especially when it comes to sharing important information and updates with them.
At iSAMS we aim to bridge the gap between your teachers and other members of the school community through enhanced communications features, including our powerful SMS Gateway.
Remarkably easy to set up and use, this module enables you to schedule, authorise, send and record all your SMS activity, ensuring that parents and students receive key messages immediately via their mobiles.
Not only this, but publishing information directly to the Parent and Student Portals means that you can reach these members of the school community almost instantly and lregardless of where either they or you are in the world.
Inputting, storing and accessing student information is fundamental to helping you complete your job effectively, which is why we aim to make this experience as seamless as possible for you and your colleagues.
Now you can view, input and amend the contact details, attendance record, wellbeing information and academic performance of each student, all through one easily navigable database.
Plus, if you prefer working on the move, our iTeacher App enables you to complete up to 70% of your daily tasks via your smartphone or tablet. Gone are the days of lengthy waits while your computer starts up – now you can access everything you need via a few quick taps on your mobile device.
Our HR Pro solution puts teachers in charge of their personal information and reduces your HR team’s workload with an intuitive self-service dashboard. Staff can view their employment terms and benefits, school handbook, payslips, and manage their holiday and sick leave requests and documents. Plus, with optional add-on modules, you can enable professional development, timesheets, expenses and more.
HR Pro also improves communication between HR, department heads and any groups or individuals by enabling staff to add important messages to pop up at log-in such as Covid-19 vaccine updates, expenses deadlines or new training courses. HR Pro also gives you the ability to send key messages and requests to dashboards or by mail-merged broadcast email and even set tasks, reminders and alerts.
We thought we’d have to make some compromises with iSAMS, since there were then very few state schools using their system… However, it has proved to be reliable and teachers like it. It allows us to manage all the data and processes we need, with minimal change to current procedures.
For our teaching staff, Contact Pupil Teachers is probably their favourite feature. Being able to quickly email teachers regarding a particular pupil via a series of clicks is just so handy. Not only this, but the iTeacher app has given staff further accessibility to iSAMS which is invaluable.
The Registration module has proved extremely popular with teachers. Not only does it mean no more paper-based registrations, but teachers can teach and take the register using an iPad anywhere on site, as well as on school trips.
