The Schools ICT Support Service provides a well-established and comprehensive ICT
service to Warrington Schools and Academies. This Service demonstrates how
schools and Warrington Borough Council can work collaboratively in the best
interests of our children to help develop a brighter future for our town.
The Schools ICT Support Service offers a vast range of services across the ICT
spectrum, in addition to being a LSU (Local Support Unit) for the full suite of
CAPITA ES SIMS products.
This service is delivered to schools at a time where Local Government budgets have
been slashed and many Schools have been put under financial pressure due to a
change in the Government’s funding policy. This adds additional pressure to
deliver a quality service with minimum running costs, whilst continuing to
assist schools in providing innovative and cost effective ICT solutions.
Our aim is to work collaboratively with all schools to deliver excellence in
ICT in order to assist in improving outcomes for Warrington children.

- MIS end user support, technical support, maintenance and upgrades along with
training and consultancy of the SIMS and FMS software
