The Countdown to Bett Begins!

iSAMS Blog

Bett is a great opportunity to come and find out what’s new at iSAMS, and with the event fast approaching, we’d like to take the opportunity to inform you of all the exciting developments we will be showcasing this year on our stand.

We hope you’ll join us for a coffee and a cupcake on stand E180 to find out more and catch up with our team.

The New Pastoral Manager

The development work our team are most excited about, is the introduction of our New Pastoral Manager, a dedicated module focused on recording, monitoring and managing student concerns and well-being.

During Bett 2018, the team will be offering visitors a sneak peek at this new module, demonstrating all the key features and functionality. Highlights of this new module include the ability to record a student concern, and set flags and actions against these concerns. In addition, the module allows your Pastoral team to set the visibility of Pastoral records and add and remove teachers as necessary. Make sure you stop by our stand and take advantage of this advance preview.

That’s not all...

Along side the new Pastoral Manager, we have a number of other key developments we’d like to share with you. One topic we’re sure will be on everyone’s mind is the new GDPR regulations coming into force in May. Whichever items you’d like to find out more about, we’d be delighted to discuss these with you.

  • GDPR – find out how we are preparing for the new data protection regulations coming into force in May; including what we are doing to be compliant, what will change and how it will affect your school.
