Teacher's WebFolder

Teacher's WebFolder is a brand new way for teachers to record and access SIMS.net data through a browser.

Robert Griffith, Director of ICT at The Thomas Adams School in Shrewsbury, had this to say:

"We can use Teacher's WebFolder on anything, from a staff laptop to Macbooks and even Linux based netbooks and mobile phones, iPhones, Androids etc. In fact anything with a web browser and access to our wireless network. This flexibility has made getting accurate registers much more straightforward, hence our attendance information is always up to date and we can locate pupils and staff quickly and easily.

We can also quickly log house points and check other details on pupils quickly and simply. As an IT manager I have the reassurance that the system is not storing pupils information locally so there are no security risks to worry about.

Training on the new Teacher's WebFolder product was really quick, in fact staff were passing it between them without the IT staff having to show them what to do - a sign of how popular and easy to use the program has been"
