Managing Late Students and Early leavers in a Visitor Management System

Most schools have a school register which is added to the school management information system to track pupil attendance. This works well, if the pupil is on time and doesn't have to leave early, but if they late and the school has an emergency, are you sure you know who is on site?

If you are using the DigiGreet visitor management system you can manage late pupils, or pupils needing to leave early by making sure they sign in, much like visitors, staff and contractors have to sign in when arriving or leaving your premises.

Pupils are managed slightly differently to visitors because we ask for the name of the person bringing them, or taking them, if relevant, and for the reason they need to leave early or arrived late.

Hours of fun can be had reading the convoluted explanations for why pupils are late, sadly they are a lot less creative when saying why they need to leave early but nonetheless the important thing is that if an emergency strikes, the fire drill page clearly shows the pupil exceptions so staff know at a glance which pupils are here who are not on the MIS register, and which pupils are not here who are on the MIS register.

As you'd expect, the fire drill page works perfectly on a smart phone or tablet, without the need to install any app or software, so any staff member needing access to this information can get it quickly and simply.
