11 years later, iSAMS looks after everything from admissions to children’s healthcare. Among the modules that make a difference are Admissions, Registration Manager, Sanatorium Manager, Activities Manager and School Reporting.
The administrative staff find the Admissions module particularly useful. They can log and review admissions and keep track of children from RAF families who change schools regularly.
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.
iSAMS even means the School Matron can now track allergy and medical requirements over time – and support the Independent Schools Inspectorate reviews. Using Activities Manager, the school creates sports team sheets that filter through to the reporting module so teachers can see and include the information in pupils’ reports. Parents can log into the school-branded Parent Portal and see how their children are performing on the playing field.
Modules such as Registration Manager and School Reporting modules, in particular, have allowed teachers to say goodbye to time-heavy tasks and get on with teaching and learning instead.
The team at Moulsford think the School Reporting module has had the most significantly positive impact, saving days’ worth of work and immeasurable stress.
