One Pupil, One Record

Teacher Centre is a vast application integrating features similar in some ways to alternative MIS and LEA products.  However, it differs significantly in key areas. Firstly, Teacher Centre is web based, cross platform working on PCs, Macs and iPads with no software or server overhead. Secondly and most importantly, it is one system; we do not have multiple copies in each school and another in the LEA office desperately trying to stay in tune. We have one system, one pupil record that provides secure, consistent and accurate management of learners and their needs.

The pupil’s record will move between schools and authorities; at no point do we create a new record. One Pupil, One Record!

This unique feature allows all stake holders to collaborate and maintain a full pupil record, sharing the maintenance burden, improving data quality and reducing bureaucracy. There is no need to sync, transfer files or maintain multiple systems.

Each and every feature of Teacher Centre work together on a single consistently and accurate record. Admissions, for example, starts with a new online admission that creates a pupil record without requiring the LEA or the school to retype the information; reducing work and reducing errors. The record will then get processed through the full admission system, which provides schools with oversight on admissions as it happens. Transport and ALN staff can be informed of any records they might be required to deal with and will be working on the same record and everyone else. Once the admission is accepted the school has simply to click the ‘add’ button for their pupils to put them on the register; completing the process with barely any effort.

The integrated nature of Teacher Centre allows many more unique features, such as the ability to collect data from all schools at the same time. For example, rolling out a marksheet to collect assessment data, can, and is, carried out for all pupils and schools from a single action in the authority. Progress can be tracked and schools supported by the LEA with access to the same view. This allows quick, simple collection which can be supported with ease.

There are many more example across all areas of the system from ALN annual reviews, staff contracts, admissions, transport, EAL, attendance, attainment, Free School Meals, communication etc. Data is entered and collaborated on, across all stake holders and is not maintained in isolation.

Better data, improved efficiency, supporting pupils together.

Not all schools use Teacher Centre as their main MIS, so there are built-in intelligent integration routines that process external data using the same high fidelity processes used in Teacher Centre. This ensures learner records are synced and maintained accurately from other systems, including SIMS and Integris.
