Send student reports to parents by email
Save time and money by sending termly or end of year reports to parents by email. Schoolcomms will pick up your student reports from SIMS Assessment Manager or SIMS Profiles and enables you to send individual emails to parents with their child’s report attached.
Keep staff in school informed
Schoolcomms makes it easy to send messages to a student’s teachers (either all teachers of a student, or just today’s teachers). Staff can see a history of the messages sent to parents of individual students via the Communications Log in SIMS.
Improve attendance and lateness
First day absence calls takes seconds if you can text or email parents, leaving you free to work with children/families causing most concern. When parents reply to your message, you can write back the appropriate absence mark in SIMS – with a copy of the message from the parent. Find out more.
