Locate any student at any time in the school day by looking at their timetable with direct access to any siblings also in school. Review individual students' attendance summaries for early intervention and to reduce absenteeism. Raise a Help Me alarm. Usage scenarios; Take Registration wherever you are. - On a school trip without relying on paper or a cumbersome laptop. - In a temporary classroom without direct MIS access. - On the PE field with no network coverage. Access Student Details wherever you are. - Contact information for use in emergencies or just to engage with parents directly. - Medical information including notes, conditions and dietary needs. Message parents wherever you are using Groupcall's Messenger service. - Use custom groups to contact, for example, all parents of the football team directly from the traffic jam on the motorway to advise of a delayed return to school without relying on traditional telephone trees, or requiring a member of staff back at school to make the announcement. Record Behaviour events with the ability to upload video and photographic evidence. - Information is sent back to the MIS for review by other staff and then saved for future analysis in behaviour management programs. See a range of summary reports conveniently filtered to groups of interest. - Including --- Daily and Yearly attendance, --- Behaviour and Achievement events by type, activity, location and status --- A list of students with birthdays for today. See whole school data across a variety of key areas of interest with the 'Today Screen'. - Completely customised to the user and subject to user profiles for granular control of access to information. Review individual students' attendance summaries for early intervention and to reduce absenteeism. - By presenting this information in graph form, alongside whole school summaries, students and parents can be involved in improving attendance figures. - By making registration easier to record in the first place, attendance patterns can be spotted earlier. In traditional arrangements where registration may be paper based, there is often a delay in registration marks being entered in the MIS and so early intervention opportunities can be missed.
