School PUPIL TRACKER is a web-based software package, which has been designed over a twelve year period by teachers and leaders working in primary schools. It supports teacher assessment and whole school self-evaluation with a huge array of integrated tools, allowing us to collate a wide range of school data in the same place. It enables effective communication across the whole school family – between school leaders, teachers, other practitioners, pupils, parents/carers and governors.

Why Are We Using It?

Improved communication between school and parents – communicates latest assessments, attendance, EYFS Profile progress, targets, Individual Education Plans for pupils with additional needs and a wide range of other information, including what your child’s class is learning each term.

Real time reporting – allows parents to gain real time access to their children’s data, with attendance being updated weekly, assessments reported half-termly, and targets set at least once every half-term.

Supporting your child – allows parents to have more regular access to children’s current targets and support plans, enabling them to support their child with these outside of school.

Safe and secure – the transfer of data across the Internet is encrypted to Becta standard security levels. This is a much more secure way of storing data than placing it on an unencrypted laptop or memory stick.

Secure password access – each child’s report is secured with a Username and complex Password. Parents can only access one child’s report and will not be able to see other children’s data or information.

E-Safety is an important part of keeping our pupils safe at St Georges Lower School . We have security measures in place in school, which are monitored carefully, helping safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance to school policies and e-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.

We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.

Search engines: Please note that no search engine is ever 100% safe but below provides some links to some “safer” search engines.

Research searching

Google offers a safer search option for children searching on the Internet.

Internet matters is a great website helping parents to check their child’s safety and how they can put age related measures in place to keep them safe whilst accessing the net at home. We have downloaded some of their resources for you to take a look at, they even have a tool to help with conversations about cyberbullying and setting up your phone so your child can access apps safely no matter how young the user may be.

As adults the internet can still be a bit of a mystery but to our children this has always been the norm with a thirst to be up with the latest thing. If you would like any more help and find technology a bit of a mine field then please come in and speak with your child’s class teacher. We will help signpost you to areas you wish to find out more information. It is better to be pro-active then reactive when it comes to the safety of our children.
