A simple, affordable, flexible solution that is used by thousands of educators in Nigeria to ease their school processes, improve transparency, accountability, efficiency, and communication.
School management is an integral part of the educational process for teachers, students and parents alike. It is the responsibility of the school owners and administrators to ensure that the operations, documentation and non-academic activities of any academic institution do not interfere with the school’s ability to carry out its primary objective; providing quality education for students.Regardless of the size, curriculum and grade level of the school, it is important that all activities of the school are managed, documented and communicated correctly to all parties involved to ensure continuity and seamless operation.
Developing a school management system is important for school owners and administrators in Nigeria to be able to efficiently manage their school activities. School management has been approached by various schools in different ways, employing various tools, methods and software to manage the several activities of their school. Activities like fee payments and calculation require a combination of computer software and paper documentation while parent communication is heavily reliant on report cards and physical meetings. Student performance management is usually documented manually and documented in files. The lack of a centralized system for school management increases the administrative overhead of schools, leads to inefficiency in the documentation and also reduces the academic productivity of teachers due to the administrative duties they need to carry out.
School management can be unified and automated from school administration to teacher management using a unified system that shares data across different user types and activities in a simplified school management system designed for Nigerian schools. Taking the Nigerian curriculum and term type into consideration, we can provide a solution that will give school administrators access to the best school management system in Nigeria.
SAFSIMS provides school administrators in Nigeria with a school management system that allows the users to use all school management systems in a simple solution.

School fees management, collection and documentation is an important part of school and student management. From determining how much school fees a student is supposed to pay for tuition, uniforms, books and other school services (like feeding and boarding house amenities) school administrators spend time documenting prices and collating together to form school fees requirements on a per-student basis. Most schools send total costs for students and parents have to determine how much is paid for each child but with the SAFSIMS fees payment solution, school administrators can simply update the payment amounts for each school activity. Parents can review the total amounts and fees breakdown for each of their children.
Parents have access to multiple payment methods for their children’s fees including but not limited to:
The SAFSIMS payment portal manages the amounts paid, issues receipts to parents, and updates student records automatically, updating what the student is eligible for.
An important part of school management is managing the students and their activities in a school. Management of students within a school involves:
● Assigning student Identification numbers
● Assigning students to classes
● Assigning subjects to students and classes
● Monitoring student attendance
● Monitoring student performance
These activities require accurate and continuous updating to ensure that student information is accurate to help the school make informed decisions and ensure that parents have the correct information about their child’s school activities.
SAFSIMS provides a simple and efficient tool to help teachers and school administrators to manage all student activities easily, automatically update student records and reduce errors in student documentation. With the student creation and class assignment portals, administrators can add students and assign them to classes. Within these classes, class teachers have access to update attendance and activity records. Subject teachers can also update academic performance records on each subject. With the student management tool, all student records and information is stored effectively and errors in student records management are limited.
Student results recording and analysis is important for everyone involved in education.
● Teachers need to record results and assess student’s subject performance on an individual and class basis.
● School administrators need to be able to view results records, compile these records and communicate these records to parents.
● School administrators also need to be able to analyse results and gauge the school’s academic performance by subject, teacher, class and student.
● Parents need to be able to access their children’s academic performance to make informed decisions about their children’s academic progress
● The academic performance of a child is important to offer the student effective guidance and counseling.

Parents can have access to student results, results analysis and a platform to download these results and provide feedback.
Parent engagement is an important part of school management as parents require concise and up-to-date information about their child’s progress and academic performance and other school activities.
