    Admitting pupils early

    Hi,
    Currently, new students get formally admitted in SIMS when they turn up on the first day of term. I understand this is the SIMS recommended way. However, this means they do not appear on class lists and any of our reports before the start of term, exactly at the time where teachers are wanting such lists.

    Will hell freeze over if we admit pupils a few days early? We are an international school so not subject to the various 'laws' on such matters.

    Occasionally, a pupil does not arrive. What would the best way be of 'un-admitting' such a pupil?

    Thanks,

    I'm pretty sure we put the new intake onto SIMS as pre-enrollment and then move them onto the roll when they turn up.

    In the Year End Procedures Handbook. I'm sure it shows you how to print pre-admission lists off.

    You can enter students into SIMS.Net whenever you like - simply set their admission date to the date they intend to start.

    Their attendance 'timeline' will not begin until the admission date set.

    This way you can run off reports with an effective date past the admission date, where they would normally be on roll.

    As for removing students when they don't turn up - normally since they didn't arrive you wouldn't normally hold data on them. The best way to remove them is to go Routines > Student > Delete Student, and remove the student using that method.

    +1 for above, you cannot un-admit a pupil, you can only delete.

    Thanks all for your thoughts so far. To clarify, the students' details are being entered into the admissions module prior to arrival and the admission date is set as the first day of term. However, they are not being admitted until they actually arrive.

    We can assign them to classes etc... and see their names amongst existing students in reports if we set the date forward (and I set it to 'all pupils' rather than 'on roll'). But not all of the information (e.g. Houses) can be accessed within the Reports module. Is that a permissions issue, or just the way it works?

    If we were to press the admit button early, can still set the admissions date to some point in the future?

    If you admit the students now, the admission dates will be automatically set to the date set in the intake group.

    So you can 'admit' them whenever you like - their admission date will remain the same.
