Operational efficiency for SIMS schools

The perfect companion for SIMS; manages pre-admissions, medical data, electronic forms, approval workflows, school trips and more.

Integrator – SIMS 7

As a proud SIMS Integrator, Operoo meets the technical requirements for reading and writing into the current version of SIMS.

SIMS is a registered trademark of Capita plc.

Operoo works beautifully with SIMS, helping you save precious time with amazing features, including:


Pre-admissions processing with automated distribution and collection of onboarding documentation

Parent verified medical and dietary information automatically updated into SIMS

Electronic forms with over 100 best practice templates for Pupil Premium Applications, Home School Agreements, Free School Meal Forms, School Trips and more.

Multi language functionality – your EAL parents can choose the language of their choice for the Operoo system, removing any barriers in getting required information back into SIMS. 

Integrated online payments, school trip management, staff forms, approval processes, incident reporting, and more… 

I am extremely pleased with how things have gone since implementing Operoo. Within 7 days of going live the majority of parents have verified their child’s record. 

Forms are really easy to adapt and make from scratch. Responses to forms have been amazing.

I have been using the system to email parents from day 1 and it has made my life a lot easier.

In the current situation, Operoo has proved an invaluable tool to communicate with parents and staff and gather information remotely.

Medical conditions & dietary requirements – kept up to date in SIMS

Using Operoo, parents can view, verify and update medical and dietary data. Updates are automatically written into SIMS removing painful manual processes when updating your Student Records.

Notifications and an audit trail ensure Operoo administrators have visibility to updates and can veto any changes.  

Pre-admissions processing

Operoo allows you to automatically manage the paperwork for new students in your pre-admissions group in SIMS.

Save processing time with automated distribution and collection of admissions forms. Once the student is admitted, Operoo automatically populates parent-verified medical and dietary requirements into SIMS.

Use our best practice digital templates, modify them, or add your own customised admissions forms.

Digital consent forms

Ditch the paperwork and go digital with Operoo. Automated forms are sent directly to parents (in the language of their choice) based on the student groupings/classes/year levels you have in SIMS.

Collect consent, signatures, attachments or any other required data. Automated reminders chase up missing forms, saving you even more time!

Online Payments

Forget managing cash payments, parents can easily pay online while providing their consent.

It’s one less thing to worry about. 


School trip management

Manage the whole trip from initial trip approval, parental consent forms, payments, roll calls, logging injuries and accidents and more. 

Staff App 

Operoo gives authorised staff instant access to student medical conditions, emergency contacts and student care instructions — even when offline – so paper copies of sensitive information are not required to be taken offsite.

Staff will know exactly what to do, who to call, and what to tell paramedics in an emergency.



Incident Reporting

Mobile reporting required to successfully manage a trip. Forget the paperwork. Logged reports instantly available at the school and can be distributed to parents.


  • Injury
  • Illness
  • Behaviour
  • Accident
  • House Points


Is the bus running late? Or maybe you have to postpone an event due to inclement weather? Don’t panic.

While you can’t predict the unexpected, you can be ready for it. With Operoo group messaging capabilities, easily send an SMS, email or push notification to parents, carers and other staff members.

Mobile student register

Keep track of students while you’re on a trip with the mobile register.

Check students in as frequently as required.

Registers submitted by staff in the field are instantly available for viewing at school.

Reporting & Analytics

Everything you need to manage your trips. Slice and dice the data, compare acceptances and declines, manage non-responders, create charts, export data, search, sort and filter responses.

It’s easy with Operoo for SIMS.

How does it work?

In this video, you’ll see how Operoo (previously named CareMonkey) integrates and works with SIMS. You’ll see:

  • parents updating and verifying medical data in SIMS
  • an administrator creating a consent form for a school trip
  • a teacher accessing medical data from their phone during a school trip
