June 2017 – Capita One B2B Open Exports

For a long time now, Welfare Call have had the ability to provide authorities reports in XML format, which can then be imported manually by our customers into their Capita One systems. Historically, this saved you manually inputting the attendance from daily reports yourselves.
Welfare Call are delighted to announce a new partnership with Capita which will improve this process even further…With the new Capita One B2B Open system, we can seamlessly provide the XML files (like before), but these can now be transmitted securely from our server to the customer’s server, and automatically import into your database, without the need for any user-interaction by the authority!
The process is all handled automatically by the B2B Open front end. Our version of B2B Open is configured with the authority’s user-name, password and secure URL where we deposit the files, your version of B2BOpen picks up the files that we auto-deposit and these import into your internal database.
Welfare Call would like to stress that whilst we are not charging for this option, Capita will be charging as they will treat this as an ‘additional add on’ to your existing Capita One system, which will require a purchase. At this moment in time, Welfare Call do not know the actual price Capita will charge, so please contact your Capita representative for further details.

  • “The introduction of the electronic personal education plans (EPEPs) system is improving information-sharing, with an increased oversight from the virtual school, although the impact on improving the quality of PEPs is not yet evident. Inspectors found that the pupil premium grant was used well to support after-school activities, including access to a nurture group, extra mathematics and English tuition, and the provision mentors.”

    Haringey – Children’s Services Inspection October 2018 (commenced with ePEP April 2018)
  • “The strong emphasis on ensuring that PEPs are of good quality and completed in a timely way is contributing well to children’s progress.”

    Enfield Children’s Services Inspection March 2019
  • “Education is actively promoted for children in care and the virtual school is increasingly effective in ensuring that children make good progress and reach their potential. The quality and timeliness of personal education plans have improved significantly. Children benefit from regular reviews of their progress.”

    London Borough of Waltham Forest – Children’s Services Inspection – Jan 2019
  • “Personal education plans are timely, set clear targets and are written in the first person. They effectively capture the voice of the child.”

    Manchester Children’s Services Focused visit – 17/09/2018
  • “The majority of personal education placed include a clear picture of the child’s progress, emotional and well-being and behaviour.”

    London Borough of Tower Hamlets Ofsted Inspection (published 07/04/2017)
  • “The quality of personal education plans is much improved.”

    Darlington Borough Council Ofsted Inspection (published 21/05/2018)
  • “The large majority of children and young people have an up-to-date, good quality personal education plan.”

    London Borough of Lambeth Ofsted Inspection (published 09/05/2018)
  • “Personal education plans are good and are regularly reviewed. They provide a vivid picture of individual children’s progress, including their social and emotional well-being, academic abilities and attitude to learning. The plans show how the pupil premium is being used to improve progress. When children are not making expected levels of progress, LACE staff identify and agree support strategies with the school, foster parents and carers to promote improvement.”

    North Lincolnshire Council Ofsted Inspection (published 25/09/17)
  • “Education planning for children looked after has historically been poor. However, teachers and the local authority are now taking full ownership of a recently introduced electronic system, and the quality of personal education plans is improving.”

    Barnet Council Ofsted Inspection (published 07/07/2017)
  • “The large majority of personal education plans (PEPs) are now of good quality. Managers have successfully introduced e-PEPs for all children looked after up to the age of 16. Appropriate training is provided for social workers and designated teachers, which is improving the quality of plans and the impact of PEP meetings.”
