Streamlined SEN/ALN management
We provide a streamlined system, designed to support the busy SENCO or school leader in the management of SEN/ALN. The system provides a clear summary of needs in the form of a SEN/ALN register which is a dynamic document and can easily be shared among staff in your school. Creating IEPs (or any other form of learning plan with our template system) is simple & straightforward, using a target library or creating custom targets. Provision mapping is catered for and detailed reports are available in terms of time, outcomes & costings - perfect for Pupil Premium reporting.
Simple import of pupils
Adding students to the system involves importing a CTF file (this can be exported from SIMS in a matter of minutes) or by using our spreadsheet template. Alternatively we can link to SIMS so that any changes you make in SIMS are automatically updated in our system. If you run into any issues during the import process then we are at hand to assist.
Accessible by range of staff
Keeping staff fully informed is an important duty for any SENCO and our system allows staff to access up to date information at the touch of a button. Staff can be designated as Teachers (can edit), Read Only (can only view) or just noted within plans as having an area of responsibility.
Easy to use interface
We have had great feedback from experienced SENCOs about how easy our system is to use. When users first login they are presented with a tutorial wizard which quickly familiarises them with the most important aspects of the system.
Windows and iPad compatible
You can use the system on any internet enabled device and it has been built to display perfectly on an ipad, laptop or desktop PC.
Large target/strategy library
There is a large library of pre-defined targets & strategies to help inspire & save time whilst creating learning plans. You can change all items within the library or create & save your own custom targets.
Learning Plan management & reviews
Learning Plans & Provision Maps are living documents which can be edited and reviewed. Review schedules are easily managed with review reminders. When you create a plan or provision you can specify the review date and you will be reminded 2, 4 or 6 weeks prior to the review.
Bulk print centre
You can quickly print IEPs or Learning Plans for an entire cohort, year group or specific students.
Provision management & reviews
There is an extensive library of well known interventions available. You can use or edit the items in this library or create your own if required. When you apply a provision you can add financial information along with the students & staff involved. Review reminders can be set and during the review process outcomes can be noted in terms of impact.
Budget & costings
Detailed financial information is available for groups of students (eg Year group, gender & Pupil Premium) which clearly show where money is being spent and it's effectiveness in terms of outcome.
Industry standard security
Security is of paramount importance to us and we have a range of industry standard measures in place to ensure safeguarding of all pupil data:
- We use Geo Trust 256 bit SSL (secure socket layer) encryption for all data transfers and our database uses encryption for key data.
