Once again, we are pleased to report that the Integra Schools IMS team gained its accreditation last summer, for the fifth time, having gone through a rigorous assessment of the full range of its SIMS support service.

Capita has made the demands of gaining this accolade even harder than before – more ‘Ofsted like’ – including visits to schools and interviews with customers, reviews of training, finance, and communication, and benchmarking against other local support teams. On this occasion, the Helpdesk was assessed as well as leadership and management. A huge thanks to all existing customers for taking part in the school survey and providing such thoughtful and well-informed feedback. And, a special thank you to Mandy at St Augustines Primary and Kay at Sir Bernard Lovell School for welcoming the SIMS inspectors. St Andrews school won the digital camera for taking part in the survey.

Accreditation provides the confidence schools seek when choosing a team that they can rely on to support their SIMS – a core asset in every school: supporting school improvement and increased efficiency.
