Firstly the ATF needs to downloaded from the local authority via ANYCOMMS or Devon Transfer onto your System.
Please then follow this quick reference sheet on how to import Admissions Transfer Files (ATFs) into your SIMS – QRS ATF Import
For help with the Admission process please follow – SIMS Admissions Code of Practice Non-Own Admissions Authority Schools in England
Should we download the ATF file if we have a nursery unit attached to our school?
No, if you have a nursery unit attached to your school we recommend that you do not import the ATF (Admissions Transfer File) as this can duplicate pupils within SIMS
