I just asked our Office Manager for a report but she has declined saying they are not available on SIMS yet.
All in weeks ago.
When I worked in a school I got it the week before we started. To get the kids used to me, I had too add them manually and all in a line in their 1st lesson of ICT. not a bad system, as it worked, and it made the kids know who I was, and I got to know their faces and names for future reference.
Who knows :P As long as they get added in SIMS in time for the first day (Which.. they will) then Salamander will automatically create their AD accounts for us. I have to do sweet FA aside from printing out the usernames.
I'll run the report myself, thanks.
You might need to check their admission status if they don't appear they might not have "accepted" yet which is what she may have meant.
I'm not sure. You may need to delve into pre admissions reports or look for the tick boxes in some places that say include pre admissions.
Is that Lisbeth Salamander? Not sure I'd trust her.
Varies school to school, but your pre-admissions should be going in NOW at minimum. Your data manager will be way too busy towards the end of August to do anything with them thanks to exams.
By now there should be:
1) Pre-Admissions group for new intake (don't forget one for Sixth Form!)
2) Students with basic details like name and UPN in the pre-admissions group.
3) All students starting in September set to Accepted with a start date within the first few days of the new Academic Year.
OPTIONAL: CTF files imported from S2S from primary schools. Chase these up now or they won't give them to you and there will be errors that need fixing to stop duplicate contacts, etc. Better to have them in now then go hunting for key stage results, etc when someone goes to create targets and other data related tasks.
So long as pre-admission students are Accepted you can work with them in most parts of SIMS. The bits you can't work with they will appear if you set the effective date or whatever you are doing to their starting date (such as adding them to a form group, you'd change the date in Pastoral Structure to when they start).
On the date they start, you admit the students by setting them to On-Roll. Don't do this before the year rolls over else you will see the pre-admissions students skipping a year and going into to Year 8!

I got a list before the end of term by asking for all pupils "on roll" and then setting the date for the report to 4th September...I got all pupils new and old with their new class details...
