To make the most of the trackers, we are able to offer training and support sessions at your school. We are happy to work with you to design a bespoke session that meets your needs.
A typical session (2pm – 5pm) includes:
- A one-to-one or group workshop with the assessment leader, head teacher or senior leadership team. The purpose of this session is to support leaders with setup and explore how the school will make the most of the trackers. We will look at how the trackers can be used to gain deep insights into the attainment and progress of a cohort of pupils. We will also explore how the reports can be easily printed and exported so that they may be shared with governors and other stakeholders. Finally, we will look at the individual pupil reports and how these can be used to update parents.
- A 60-minute staff training session. This includes an opportunity for teachers to ask questions and try using an example version of the tracker.
The cost of the session is £325 plus travel expenses.
The trackers are free.
The support sessions are led by John Coxhead (Deputy Headteacher and assessment lead at Parbold Douglas CE Academy). John created the trackers with colleagues at Longton Primary School in the 2016/17 academic year and, since then, has supported local schools to make the most of them. During this time, the trackers have continued to evolve and develop. John is passionate about sensible approaches to primary assessment and, in 2017 and 2018, worked alongside the Standards & Testing Agency to create parent information videos about the KS1 and KS2 national tests.
