:: SIMS Dinner Money end of year using school data ::
Outline
This brand new session will allow delegates to carry out the end of year procedures for Dinner Money in SIMS as contained in the documentation we sent out to schools. The session will allow delegates to connect remotely to their own school database and complete the processes with guidance from Information Services consultants. Delegates should have a basic familiarity of SIMS and have their own login to the system. Shortly before the session your school will be provided with instructions for setting up the remote connection. It is the school’s responsibility to ensure that these instructions are followed and it should be noted that failure to do so may result in the delegates being unable to work on the school’s own data during this session.
Prerequisites
It would be useful if your new term dates for the next academic year have been entered into SIMS. Please note that we will send instructions (to the email address used to book a place onto this course) for setting up a computer in school to be connected to remotely during the session. Please ensure that you book a place on the course at least a week before it takes place to allow sufficient time for your network support provider/technician to set up the remote connection. If this is not done before you arrive at the course, you will have to use our training dataset instead during the session. We will also require a permission form to be signed by the headteacher or deputy headteacher and returned to us (or brought with you to the course), otherwise the remote connection will not be possible.
Outcomes:
By attending the course participants will:
  • set up the new catering year
  • create new meal definitions
  • add the new meal charges
  • run end-of-year reports to chase debts
  • write off/transfer any balances
