SIMS Lesson Monitor (Lesson Registration)

About the Service

SIMS Lesson Monitor is an additional licensed module for SIMS that provides additional functionality to record pupil attendance (lesson registration) and behaviour.

Lesson Monitor helps reduce truancy while monitoring behaviour trends in the classroom, ensuring early intervention where necessary. Senior leaders and teachers can quickly monitor students’ attendance in every class

What are the benefits?

Quick recording of attendance registers by teachers in the classroom.

  • Enable class teachers to record behaviour and achievement incidents straight from the register.
  • Keep track of your students and improve their attendance – a key factor in helping students achieve the best grades they can.
  • Take immediate action on unexplained absences. Teachers can view the last ten instances of a lesson, allowing teachers to identify patterns and take action quickly before problems escalate.
  • Reports for specific absences – First day absences, post-registration absences, selected students' absences or where whole families are absent at the same time.

Keep parents informed, create attendance letters to send home, increase parental awareness of their child's attendance and increase parental engagement
