What is MIS?
A Managment Information System (MIS) is a core tool for School Leaders.
An MIS focuses on the management of information across the school including attendance, behaviour, assessment, teacher attendance/absences, pupil data, teacher data, SEN information. Modern MIS solutions have become more integrated with timetabling to provide greater efficiency in information collection, analysis and statistics.
An MIS, used effectively, helps schools to maximize school leaders' knowledge of the pupils and staff of their schools. Effective use of the MIS requires whole-school engagement to ensure that data is collected.
