WEGC are implementing Kamar. Whilst a relatively small and low risk implementation it is critical in terms of school administration, management and pastoral care.
The single biggest improvements in my view will be:
- Easy email access to parents/caregivers (a nightmare under existing system), and
- Parents portal, giving parents access to progress and attendance data.
It’s interesting how quickly systems can be selected and implemented in schools without a huge bureaucratic overhead, whilst still taking appropriate measures to manage risk and keep staff on board. No doorstops by way of RFI’s, RFP’s, backside covering etc… Quite refreshing really.
