MIS for Schools and Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs)

Schools are finding that student numbers are growing faster than budgets. Teachers have to constantly juggle conflicts between administration and contact time. Multi Academy Trusts (MATs) are working hard to improve student attainment, share the burden of business operations and centralise decision-making.

That’s why we developed Cloud School, our next generation Cloud-based Management Information System (MIS). It enables you to access vital performance data, with easy to use dashboards, when you need it anytime, anywhere - from any device.

Understanding key issues


Reporting Trust-wide

There is a need for accurate and timely reporting for each Academy and the Trust in its entirety, with the ability to report at cluster level.

Entries completed on time

Census time can be stressful. It is important to ensure all data submissions information, as well as exam entries, are completed in a timely manner.

Inspection readiness

A pending visit by Ofsted can be challenging. A school needs to have key information ready to present so they can easily provide Ofsted with everything they need.

Information availability

It is vital to make information as useful and accessible as possible to all stakeholders - from teachers through to the School Leadership Team (SLT) and governors.

Ensure effective engagement

Parental engagement is becoming more important with every passing academic year. Schools and academies need a system that can help facilitate this in a simple and effective way.

Legislation conformity

Ensuring compliance with both the education statute and employment legislation are ongoing challenges. Educational organisations need a solution in place that will help them keep on top of this - without taking too much of their valuable time.
