What our Schools Say

"What was quite impressive was in between the first presentation and in person demo, there was the addition of the walk through help function. It was clear that there was those kinds of developments going on all the time, and from a feature point of view, and the fact that you were willing to continuously develop your product is what helped us to decide you were better for us."

Gary Towers

Assistant Headteacher
"The attendance team loves the Multi Academy Vision portal. They can see the whole trust from a single portal, rather than having to dip into individual instances to extract and collate data in spreadsheets. It has saved so much time."

Glenn Perrin

IT Strategic Lead
"The level of reporting has always been a key thing for me from Bromcom. Providing that value at MAT level where you can do something once, and transparently deploy it to multiple sites. Bromcom is the only MIS that does it natively and out of the box."

Daniel Barlow

Director of Data, Information and Systems
"We had the hosted MIS version onsite. When you come and look at the servers, and server upgrades, the amount of time and effort it takes to redeploy and upgrade hosted servers, was one of my main motivations to switch."

Dominic Taylor

Chief Operations Officer

and GDPR Lead

"Jason understood the product, talked clearly and was able to answer any questions. He didn’t come across as a sales man which is always good for education. I felt he was doing the right thing for the right reason."

Clive Jones

Secondaries Executive
"As a Trust we have several schools and may have more joining us in the future, it has helped to have one MIS provider and even though all of the schools have different requirements from the system we are able to set them up to suit the individual schools needs."

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a cloud-based School MIS?

Although the term ‘cloud’ is banded around on a regular basis these days, it’s not often used in the right context and its meaning can be quite confusing. In essence, the ‘cloud’ is referring to servers on the internet, rather than ones being physically installed at your school. So when school software is cloud-based, it means that it’s all neatly tucked away on a remote server away from your school and you will be accessing it via the internet.
This means you won’t have to keep paying to run, maintain and upgrade any physical servers at your school and you have the added benefit of a third-party (Bromcom) providing all of your upgrades and ensuring everything is in order, 24/7. One of the key advantages of cloud-based school software is that you can access them from anywhere, so instead of only being able to logon to your student management system at school, you can effectively work from home, the playground, the school bus and so on. This comes in handy when you’re on a school trip and want to take a register or record behaviour incidents right there and then. You’ll be glad that all of Bromcom’s software for schools is cloud-based so you can reap the benefits and save money whilst you’re at it!

What is a School MIS?

A School MIS or Management Information System is software that is designed to carry out a wide range of administrative duties at a school. It began as a digital student management system to replace pupil records, so that schools didn’t have to keep reams and reams of paper-based folders. These days, a modern School MIS is a behemoth that can record and analyse some of the key elements of pupil performance such as assessment, behaviour and attendance.

What School Timetabling software can I use?

Our school management system includes the Bromcom E-Timetable module, allowing you to create complex school timetables based on your curriculum and rooming needs. This module allows you to take your current curriculum model in Bromcom and generate a lesson by lesson timetable for individual teachers. Blocks and carousels can be built and draft timetables can be printed for school staff to review before implementation.
Once your timetable is complete it can be easily imported into your School MIS so that it is ready to go live at the time you choose. This allows you, if needed, to have multiple timetables changes across the academic year. Small ad-hoc timetable changes, such as a change of teacher or movement of one lesson can be done easily and directly from within the School MIS. When developing your timetable, you are also able to import from other timetabling systems such as Capita’s NOVA-T, KJ Timetabler and Edval timetabling.

What is Classroom Management in the context of a school management system?

When we talk about Classroom Management in a student management system, we’re referring to all of the digital tools that help teachers effectively carry out their role. It could be our Teachers Dashboard that brings all of their pupils information into one area (assessments, registers, behaviour, class and seating plans). Or our Google and Microsoft integration so you can easily manage your digital classroom and associated educational software.
Rather than looking at a School MIS as merely a student data system, we aim to provide school software that benefits the school environment. We’re trying to remove some burden from teachers and offer some new ways of working that can enhance student outcomes when paired with robust school processes and support.

How does Bromcom handle student attendance management?

Our school management software provides quick and efficient attendance registration using any device including mobile or tablet, via the MIS or our teacher app. Statutory (AM/PM), lessons, club and trip registration are included, and you can automate SMS/email/Push notifications to parents alerting them to their child’s absence.
School cloud systems often boast of their analysis tools but at Bromcom we’re really wanting to get the best out of your data. Our Attendance dashboard offers a full suite of analytics so you can measure performance, analyse trends and drill down to the detail. Compare year on year and benchmark against DFE statistics or school targets.

Isn’t a School MIS just a School Administration Management system?

Traditionally, you would be right in thinking that the humble School MIS is just a tool for the admin team to record information about pupils and staff, but over the past decade it’s prevalence as a tool for teachers has been steadily increasing. Teachers need information just as much as the admin team, be it a lesson plan, previous assessment results or information about a student’s behaviour. When school software can provide this is at your fingertips, it allows you to get on with the task at hand and focus on the students themselves.
As school management software becomes more rife in the classroom, it opens up a wide range of new opportunities for how to assist pupils with both their performance and well-being. What if your School MIS warned you that a student had been the victim of bullying at lunch break? This small slice of information allows you to adapt your approach with that pupil and potentially enhance their lesson experience. This is something that our School MIS includes in the teacher dashboard and it’s one of many handy tools and snippets of information that are designed to make teachers lives that little bit easier.

Is Student Data Management statutory?

Schools are required keep and maintain educational records and also make them available to parents on request. As per The Education (Pupil Information) (England) Regulations 2005 records include both current and former pupils and schools should adhere to the retention policies set out but the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). Our School MIS is designed with these rules in mind and includes an array of tools to disclose information to parents, automatically deal with pupil retention and process right to be forgotten requests. We develop our student management system in line with DFE guidance and ensure that any new regulations are promptly accounted for in all of our school software.

Does Bromcom include class registration management?

Of course! We see it as an essential part of the School MIS as opposed to an additional bolt-on. You can manage the structure of the school day, academic calendar and the timetable, which covers everything from a morning/afternoon form/tutor group registration to a full subject class-based schedule over a multi week cycle. Maintain classes, forms and groups, including dynamic groups that the system will then automatically maintain according to defined rules such as “all pupil premium boys in KS3 with less than 85% attendance” and “all pupils with an education, health and care plan (EHCP) who received a ‘Good Class work’ commendation this term”. As well as lessons, you can schedule after school clubs and trips, then monitor participation accordingly. Our School Software is designed with the modern school in mind, so we understand that attendance is more than just AM and PM.

What types of school MIS solutions can Bromcom provide?

We’re well known for our Primary and Secondary School MIS solutions but we can also cater for any type of school. Our school management system is used by Nurseries, Alternative Provisions, All-Through Schools, Special Schools, Sixth Forms, Virtual Schools and International Schools.
