How can I add pupils to Pobble via our school MIS?

Pobble Schools can link Pobble to their MIS (e.g. SIMS, RM, Scholarpack) so that any changes in your MIS (e.g. new pupils or pupils that leave the school) will be automatically updated on Pobble, saving valuable time!

Step 1. Ensure parents have been informed using our Letter A template - this is available as a download in your set up guide or in step 2 of the "add pupils" screen.

Step 2 (if applicable). If you already have pupils on Pobble that have been added manually, ensure that your lists of pupils in Pobble and your MIS are as similar as possible. For example, this may involve removing any old Year 6 pupils from Pobble who are no longer on your MIS. Please click here for more information on how to do this, if required.

Step 3. As an administrator for your school, click on your account icon in the header and select 'School settings". On the 'Data' tab, click the 'Connect' button. This will inform our data partner Wonde that you wish to connect.


Step 4. Wonde will then take you through the next steps of the process. Useful documentation from Wonde on Polices and Agreements, School Data and GDPR and MIS Integration Guides can be found here.

-Wonde will contact your school to verify the contact (you).

-You will receive an email from which will invite you to create your "Wonde Portal" account (if you do not have one already via another application).

-Once logged in to this account, select "Pobble Education Ltd" and review the permissions. 

-Select which pupils you wish to import - please also note that by default, ALL pupils and groups on your MIS are uploaded to Pobble.  If you only want to upload a key stage or certain year groups, the articles below will help you to manage your pupil data.

I just want to sync a year group or key stage, not the whole school?

A parent has not given permission, how do I exclude the pupil from the sync?

-Once happy all the relevant pupils have been selected, click the "Approve" button located in the top right hand corner. This will approve the connection.

- You will receive an approval receipt via email

- You can then complete a self-install or book an appointment with one of Wonde's integration team to support you.

- Your pupil data should be synced over to Pobble within 2-4 hours after approval has been given. Wonde will send you a confirmation email. 

For more information please visit Wonde and School Data Management. Wonde have also produced a screencast of the process that can be found here.

Finally, log in to Pobble and click "view pupils" to check all is well.

If you are happy, the next step is to send out your parent permission emails.

How do I send parent permission emails now our MIS is synced?
