The Bromcom Multi-Academy Vision solution is designed for multi-academy trusts and school federations with a role in overseeing the performance of their schools. It provides an online portal for viewing and aggregating data from multiple schools, partnered together in a Trust, or Federation. Vision combines data on student attendance, behaviour and attainment as well as staff absence from multiple schools to provide oversight of individual and relative performance of your school/academy.
The Bromcom MIS is cloud based, one integrated system with everything you need.
Multi-Academy Vision is a web based portal, accessible anywhere via web browser with no need to download or install software. Data ﬂow into Vision is automatic so does not require manual intervention or maintenance. Access levels, however, are fully customisable to ensure speciﬁc user groups only see the data relevant to them.
Vision aggregates data in four main areas, student attendance, behaviour (including exclusions), attainment and staff absence. Data drawn from these areas of each individual school MIS can be compared at the school level and broken down further by contextual factors such as gender, ethnicity and eligibility for Free School Meals.
Through the easy to navigate web interface data can be interrogated at the trust/federation and individual school level, with further drill down. Predeﬁned graphs allow instant comparisons to be made between member schools, while custom tools enable the user to combine and map the data according to their speciﬁc requirements. It is a reporting and analysis service that works in tandem with the Bromcom MIS.
Vision enables users to take the next step, comparing performance and helping identify and measure the many dimensions related to performance. It supports collaboration between schools to highlight and share good practice, an essential ingredient of improvement. Vision makes such collaboration easy and accessible to all relevant partners.
Vision is designed to provide easy dissection of your data into various groups, including all the common vulnerable groups, to check performance against progress measures. The extent of the comparison is only limited by the data available and the harmonisation of data collection approaches taken by each school, such as having common approaches to assessment/life without levels structures.
Vision is cloud hosted and designed for anywhere, anytime access to your data, thus enabling real time information sharing in the local community.
Advanced Report Builder
Vision includes Advanced Report Builder which allows you to create your own reports on multiple aspects of performance. Advanced Reports can have multiple, separately ﬁltered, sections; can group and summarise data and deploy a wide range of calculations, both within data sets and as ﬂoating variables.
Microsoft Power BI
It is also possible to interrogate MAT Vision data using Microsoft Power BI. The entirety of the database can be queried via a secure, automated data feed powering dashboards that can also link to ﬁnancial/HR systems or any other data sources. The BI content is embedded in MAT Vision, giving you a secure, read-only view showing the exact visualisations and key performance indicators your trust want to track. Dashboards created this way provide an interactive platform for dissecting the performance at high performing schools or departments and these areas of excellence can then be used to set benchmarks for the trust as a whole.
