BMS UPGRADE - ‘Gender’ option NOW LIVE on ‘Attendance’ page of BMS

There is now an option to enter the gender of every child that attends your courses. This is now live on the BMS and can be found on the ‘attendance’ page.

Please ensure you select a gender forevery child that attends your sessions/courses in the future.

Why have we done this?

Determining the gender of a child will be a crucial part of the reporting functionality soon to be available on the BMS. For example, this will allow you to compare how boys are performing compared to girls, see what activities girls prefer to attend and so on.

The more data you can input into the BMS, the greater evidence and reporting you can provide your head teachers with.

Calling all Performing Arts licensees – put your head teachers in lights!

We’re in the process of creating a range of sparkling new Performing Arts literature to support YOU and YOUR business growth.

Please can you email Frankie with your endorsements before Friday 1st May.

Help Courtney resolve your finance queries quicker...

We’ve recently had a number of franchisees calling Courtney chasing payments because schools are saying they have paid an invoice. Before we can reconcile your payment, we require the following information from you -

  • Method of payment (BACS or Cheque)
  • Total payment
  • Date payment was made

The most common outcome is schools have passed invoices onto the local council to pay and therefore payment is taking longer to reach us, meaning longer to reconcile.

This is also a great opportunity to remind your schools that our preferred payment method is BACS and all remittance advices should be sent to [email protected]

Become the information king in your business!

“Information is king” says Glenn Hoy of TIME Associates as he explains, “when trying to engage with a new school it’s vitally important that you communicate the right information to the right people, and by that I mean knowing the names of the key contacts at your target schools. Such as the head teacher, Business Manager, PE Coordinator etc.

That way you can tailor your contacts for maximum impact and when calling them, you have another reason to overcome the barriers set by The Gatekeeper. Always remember, information is king!”
