    True, but we do have to be careful as it's only freely available to an authenticated user at a SIMS school. Nothing wrong with that doc, but we need to be aware of posting technical details, as we do get the occasional student trying to social engineer key files / info from here. Be A Lert

    I don't have access to SIMS, but i have access to the PCs which have SIMS software installed on them as a (normal user), this is because these PCs are connected to the councils domain, however i can get hold of password for the SIMS

    I wouldn't be accessing a school's MIS that I wasn't authorised to do so, that's highly illegal. I certainly wouldn't be admitting to doing it in an open forum either!

    Many technicians do not have access to SIMS. For very good reason. You don't necessarily need it, you shouldn't necessarily have it.... we don't know.

    If you should or could have access legitimately, then signing up with Capita SupportNet or accessing training manuals is simple. Your LA should be able to help with all this.

    No one here knows who you are, therefore we could be helping someone gain access to Pupil data... no one is going to do that. Working for an LA myself, we are extremely careful what documentation we allow someone to have access to, but never stand in the way of those that need it. Talk to your LA and/or SIMS System Manager.

    It was that first quote there that made me respond the way I did - made it sound like you were going to try to access pupil data that you shouldn't have access to to.

    @creese explains why people are reluctant to help people gain access to SIMS

    In the dim and distant past I used to print out every SIMS Handbook that was updated with a SIMS Upgrade.
    Can you imagine trying to do that now!
    And then considering uploading them all to this thread one by one?

    The best thing to do, if you are in a school that has SIMS, is ask the SIMS manager, whoever that might be for access, either directly to the program or the manuals, and they will be able to help you out if appropriate. There isn't any publicly available documentation. It's an elite club, with tight regulations on entry. If you do join, let us know and we'll start preparations for the initiation ceremony
