Introduction to the school
At Richmond Hill Primary school children enjoy learning from the time they start school in the Early Years Foundation Stage, where they are nurtured and cared for in a safe environment and make good progress. Pupils' enjoyment of school life is evident in their supportive approach towards each other which helps to make the school a safe and welcoming place.
Why did you choose ScholarPack?
We primarily decided to switch to ScholarPack because we wanted to record all of our assessment data on one system rather than using an assessment tracker alongside our MIS. A web based system is a much better option for our school because we can use it anytime with any device.
Which feature of ScholarPack do you like the most?
As the administrator I especially like the registers on ScholarPack because when I'm completing the daily checks i am able to conveniently insert a note to inform a teacher if a parent has rang to verify a child's illness then print out this information in a few simple steps. The user interface is also simple to use and the deputy head is pleased with the functions of the assessment module and the ability to create reports from this data.
In what ways has ScholarPack helped your school?
ScholarPack has benefitted our school by ensuring that all of our data is conveniently in one place. In the past as an administrator I was the sole user of our previous MIS but now all of our staff including teachers use the system on a daily basis. It has helped us to focus on tasks as a team rather than individually.
How have you found the help from the support team?
We can't fault the support team, we are able to log a ticket and a member of the team will get back to us the same day. The staff in the lower end of the school tend to telephone support which is also very efficient.
How long have you been using ScholarPack?
We began using ScholarPack at Easter 2013.
Would you recommend us?
I would if the opportunity arose.
