Transformation at The British School of Barcelona
Implementation of the Engage education information management system has transformed the way in which The British School of Barcelona (BSB) in Spain manages its key staff, pupil and parent data.
The installation of Engage has enabled BSB to be in control of its data, with teachers now able to report accurately on pupil performance when required. “Data now flows through the school from prospective pupil to past pupil,” states Jon Cronin, assistant head of e-Enhancement.
“Relevant information is stored against a pupil’s electronic record and shared with appropriate staff. This creates a more efficient and purposeful administration system with the flexibility to generate various reports when needed.”
These reports include those required by Spanish law as Jon explains: “The school follows the British system. However, Engage allows us to generate the various reports that are required by Spanish authorities and it has helped the school’s Spanish Universities Orientation Officer to collate the required data for pupil applications.”
BSB is now in the process of utilising Engage's extensive parent communication facilities to automate much of its contact externally.
