The staff seek to promote equality through the delivery of an exciting, challenging and innovative curriculum that is designed to meet the needs of all their pupils.
Why did you choose ScholarPack?
We primarily chose ScholarPack because of the visual imagery. The way in which the icons appear on the screen attracted us to the system as the user interface is clear, making it much easier to use than SIMS. The dashboard also has everything you need all in one place - simple.
What do you like most about ScholarPack?
For us, mapping out our children's progress is very important. With our previous system we found that inputting attendance each day was very time consuming, as a result of this we had to set aside one day a week to input this data which was often inconvenient. We now find it really easy to keep up to date with our attendance every single day due to the speediness of the system; this is very helpful if for example OFSTED arrive unannounced and ask for an immediate summary of our term's attendance data.
We have recently completed the Workforce Census and found that with ScholarPack, unlike with other systems it is very easy to make alterations even after we had finished inputting all of our information.
In our drive for improvement we have been setting demanding targets for our pupils who are above average national progress rates. Scholarpack gives us the flexibility to set our own parameters for progress in KS1. It also allows us to use Development Matters alongside the ELG''s in EYFS. This flexibility was a huge selling point for our school.
How have you found the support from us?
The support from the team, Shane and Shelley, has been really helpful and they always solve our issues immediately. They are quick at answering calls at all times and their patience has been great, especially after the summer holidays when we had to ring to refresh our memories.
In what ways has ScholarPack helped your school?
ScholarPack will help monitor our different target groups, we will be able to analyse all of our data across the school. It is now possible for us to easily identify each group and find the information we want in a few clicks.
Would you recommend us?
Absolutely, we have already.
