Introduction to the school
At Moresby Primary School the staff seek to nurture every child's individuality, academic talents and social skills. Their family atmosphere provides a safe and secure environment, in which every child feels included. They inspire wonder and interest in their children by enabling them to explore the world through a broad range of opportunities, and develop their ambition by celebrating their achievements together.
Why did you choose ScholarPack?
We were invited along to a presentation hosted by System I.T and as an experienced user of management information systems I had many questions, and ScholarPack were able to answer them all. Our previous system SIMS was becoming very tired which is why we were attracted to Scholarpack especially because it is modern and cloud based. There is now no laborious back-ups and the system is much more user friendly.
What do you use the most on ScholarPack?
We use the children's contact information on a daily basis and now find it much easier to simply log on and find what we need, whereas our previous system was taking far too long to load making us reach for a paper copy. We have found that text messaging to parents from the system is useful and we like that we have the option to use a pre-made report or create our own. We are in the beginning stages of inputting assessment data and feel that the reports we create from this information will prove very beneficial to our school.
How have you found the support from us?
The support from ScholarPack is ongoing and consistently very helpful, especially when we began to complete the Census. Often we don't use a particular function of the system for a while, then our memories need refreshing so we just ring up and ask.
In what ways has ScholarPack helped your school?
ScholarPack has helped us to become more organised in the office. We don't have to spend time doing back-ups and it's very quick to log on, everything is electronic now instead of paper-based.
How did you find migrating from your previous system?
We found changing over our systems absolutely fine, we received good training and quickly became accustomed to our new system. All of our data was transferred over on a Common Transfer File (CTF).
Would you recommend us?
We recently hosted an event with a demonstration from Nick and five schools attended. Nick discussed ScholarPack then I recommended the system to the other schools.
