Most Helpful Reviews

BlueSky Education

Jim Barlow, Headteacher: Having started with Blue Sky for Performance Management, we are now successfully using it for monitoring Professional Learning activities, self-evaluation & quality assurance processes. In our last Ofsted inspection, we were able to demonstrate the impact of our work very quickly by producing reports from Blue Sky.
Shola, HR Manager: Customer service is spot on and very helpful. The system also is easy to navigate
Linda Nicholls, HR Manager: It is a comprehensive package that allows both staff and managers to record, review and track PM objectives easily. In addition, CPD training is recorded and retrieved if and when required.

No installation of hardware/software is required, any user set up is done so via an email which contains their username and password.

In the first instance the data manager or data lead at the school would need to input the staff/curriculum information from their MIS system via an export.

To allow for full functionality of the service, a portable device such as a tablet/laptop should be used to conduct any records which are performed.

Very minimal training, either a quick online session (30 mins) to select members of staff to run through functionality, or we do have user print outs available which show how a record can be started and published so the analysis is available within the reports.

We have a dedicated help section full of guides included a getting started guide which the initial administrator can work through. We also have a support team on hand Monday - Friday 9-5pm.
