Teacher's WebFolder is a brand new way for teachers to record and access data in SIMS.net. Register pupils via an attractive and friendly web interface. Record behavioural events into SIMS Lesson Monitor and/or SIMS Attendance. If it is in active use, assessment entries can also be made into SIMS Assessment Manager and SIMS Profile.
Frequently needed student information such as parent contact details and medical information can be accessed instantly - lifesaving in an emergency!
Teacher's WebFolder is far more cost effective and an easier alternative to rolling out SIMS.net into classrooms for teacher access.
Schools up and down the country have been asking for a portable solution for which there is now Teacher's WebFolder Mobile. In some schools teachers have been pleading with the Senior Leadership Team to swap their laptops for iPod touch or iPhones to use with Teacher's WebFolder, with one prominent school in Kent reporting that "... we have a growing number of staff with iPhones and iPod touches, many are now saying 'get me SIMS on an iPod touch and you can have my laptop back'".
Essa Academy in Bolton has been leading iPod touch use, even with students, and it has been an early adopter of Teacher's WebFolder Mobile for teacher use across the school campus. Essa Academy's Abdul Chohan, the Director of Technology said "Bromcom's Teacher's WebFolder Mobile fits perfectly with Essa Academy's philosophy of embracing mobile technology by including an all teacher solution."

Teacher's WebFolder at The Thomas Adams School
"We can use Teacher's WebFolder on anything, from a staff laptop to Macbooks and even Linux based netbooks and mobile phones, iPhones, Android 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"
Robert Griffith, Director of ICT, The Thomas Adams School, Shrewsbury, Shropshire
Teacher's WebFolder has been created to integrate with the SIMS.net database to replace the Lesson Monitor client and hence removes the need to roll out SIMS.net throughout the school. Teacher's WebFolder requires zero installation or updates on classroom PCs/Laptops because the initial installation and any updates are made directly on the school server.
Furthermore, being a browser based software product, demand on hardware specification for classroom PCs and/or Laptops is greatly reduced, hence saving you substantial costs which can be allocated elsewhere!
*Implemented with the support of Capita's Technical Partnership agreement, using Capita's interface, which ensures 100% compatibility with SIMS.net. The required software is simply installed on the existing SIMS server.
