Plus! for Schools is the first school MIS system that unites interests of
all of the major stakeholders in an Independent school community.
Improving efficiency in routine tasks immediately saves time right across
Unlock the potential for much greater collaboration and teamwork, by broadening
access beyond the traditional head-bursar-secretary boundaries dictated by
the costs of conventional school MIS systems.
Staff at last have the information they need, when they need it and all in
one place. Less time searching for information, more time working with it.
And with access to the system both in school and at home, even part time
staff can work more cohesively as part of the team.
All information in Plus! for Schools is held under security control using
advanced password mechanisms similar to online banking websites and changes
to records are fully audited, so you remain in control at all times. Its structured
approach also greatly assists your compliance with Data Protection regulations.
The up to date pupil database is also at your fingertips, creating a reliable,
available reference that allows the school to create value from information
that would otherwise be locked in an office or too time consuming to regularly
When it comes to writing reports, you can instantly see overviews of the
progress your team is making using visual colour coding to highlight the status
of each child's report.
And because narrative reports are compiled and collated as they are written,
every teacher can instantly see their contribution in the context of the whole
document. This encourages self moderation which in turn means fewer edit/review
cycles, less paper and time saved for you.
With information already entered in the system, our philosophy of adding
value comes to the fore. Statistics in both tables and charts are instantly
compiled to enable you to quickly spot trends, outstanding performance and
areas for improvement. This information is available at pupil, class, subject
and exam level without needing to re-enter data into spreadsheets etc.
This means valuable analysis is available more often than would be practical
to create by other means.
For forward thinking schools, even greater educational value can be unlocked
from the reporting process through widening the view of each child's progress.
Using Plus! for Schools, parents can read the documents online and directly
add comments and feedback themselves. Equally, pupils can be empowered to
directly input their own self appraisal comments.
These advanced features of Plus! for Schools mean that both pupil and parents
become more engaged in the process and derive greater ownership of the future
Although this might sound rather scary at first, the school can decide if
and when to adopt such a holistic approach at it's own pace, and in only a
couple of mouse clicks.
