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.

Standards Tracker

Helen Thompson, Teacher: This is the most useful and effective tool we have used to support both appraisal and the evaluation of the impact of CPD. Progress over time can easily be tracked and the integration of school development planning and self evaluation means that this is your one stop shop for school improvement. Clear, anonymised headlines can be provided and personalised for a range of audiences and the team are incredibly responsive to providing updates in response to requests from schools.
Bryan Harrison, Headteacher: An essential tool Educated provide excellent support
Vicki, Deputy headteacher: It helps focus all staff on the monitoring schedule. Staff know when they are to be monitored and the schedule is set for the full year with aspects and different focus linked to our school priority areas. School create their own monitoring forms and appraisals linked to these priorities so they are adapted well to our context.

Our software is browser-based and can be used on desktops or tablets. We set up the software with you so that it fits your requirements as exactly as possible. Training is provided within the app and separate training systems are provided but our experience is that teachers need little to no training to be able to use the system.
