Advice Collection: Get Ready for September

Update Your Website?

New Head starting in September? Maybe they want to overhaul your website design – or maybe you fancy a change to highlight the new year! Changes to your website design can be low cost, and you do not need to transfer any of your content! See more on this by clicking the link below.

MIS Matters

Turning off your MIS machine over the Summer? Updating your server? Moving from one MIS to another?

Halting the import into eSchools may cause issues upon your return in September. See more on this by clicking the link below.

Ensure Access When You're Closed

The Forgotten Password link on your login screen can help users if their mind goes blank! However, it will only work if there is a unique email address in your system to verify them. Ensure they can do this before the Summer holidays so that everyone has access when you are closed. See more on this by clicking the link below.

Teachers: Holiday Homework

if you’re a teacher and thinking of setting some holiday homework – make sure your students know their password! If they can’t login over the holidays, they may not be able to complete their work! You can update their password prior to the end of term easily! See more on this by clicking the link below.

Teachers: Class Pages

Set out your Class Page prior to day one! Add pictures, text, videos and more, so that your students are aware of notices and class topics as soon as the term starts. Take a look at how to do this (and how to avoid pitfalls as your MIS changes from year to year) via the link below.

Teachers: Try Simple Registers

With the new term just around the corner, take a look at the latest version of our attendance registration tool, Simple Registers. The Simple Register streamlines the process of taking the register and populates your SIMS, based on attendance marks added by teachers. Even if you already use our registration tool, you may not be aware that we have a simplified version to help streamline the process further. See more on this by clicking the link below.
