SIMS Interventions (half day)

SIMS Interventions is a system within SIMS to record and track underperforming students, allocate additional resources and monitor how those resources affect Key Performance Indicators

Interventions allows schools to record how much those resources cost, so that outcomes can be tracked against cost as well as against impact.

Half day course

This course is aimed at staff responsible for the set up and maintenance of interventions within SIMS including Data Manager, SENCO and Administrative Staff. Delegates should have knowledge of the interventions policy in use within their establishment and a basic understanding of SIMS.
