Simple and easy to use. The children are engaged by it and the parents really appreciate seeing what their children are learning in school. A very valuable tool.

Robin Flack found Atom Prime:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    The fact the work is tailored to meet individual pupil's needs and allows the child to receive immediate feedback in a safe, engaging platform.
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    It's early days for us but the work already is beginning to support children who are below age-related expectations to have additional practice in areas they are less confident with.
  • Significantly provides school data
    Very quick and easy to see children who are accessing Atom learning and the progress they are making.
  • Slightly improves teaching efficiency

Digital Transformation Coordinator

GEMS Wellington School - Qatar, Qatar

Used Atom Prime weekly for 0–3 months

Sep 2022

Honestly, from the platform itself - not without its fault but, truly, remarkable - to the incredible support from Michael, I would not hesitate to recommend the platform to anyone willing to listen and absolutely plan to make it part of my professional portfolio and priorities moving forward.

Chris Robinson found Atom Prime:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    The user-friendliness and ease of which staff can engage with the platform, never mind the powerful adaptive software that tailors for and challenges all pupils, makes this a no-brainer in regards reducing teacher workload and significantly increasing teacher insight and satisfaction.
  • Slightly reduces attainment gap
    Given we are at the start of our journey with Atom Prime, it would be premature to talk of the impact I have seen and evidenced in regards attainment. That said, I have every confidence it will prove valuable once the systems are embedded and more data can provide us a deeper, richer outlook.
  • Slightly provides school data
    Again, given we are taking our first steps, we have little data on which to comment. Worth noting that, in our excellent onboarding discussion, the data features looked like an incredibly intuitive and exciting feature, one we are looking forward to implementing more fully once we have a greater cohort of data.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Previously, we would have to independently source tasks in each area, compile them into a Word document or PDF, print, stick into books and email to parents, then mark individually each week. To say that Atom has provided more efficient - and higher quality - answers - to, literally, every step of the process, would be a massive understatement.
  • Slightly builds student knowledge
    Forgive my repetition, but this is something I would like to gauge more over time. That said, I have been highly encouraged by the level of challenge Atom Prime is providing and hope that this will reveal itself in the work we do in class.

Great resource to prepare for the assessments coming up and a really effective and well managed medium for teachers/ parents and tutors to support the children on their learning journey.

Mariam found Atom Learning:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Homework assignements can be set on Atom, limiting marking/ grading. Suitably prepares for ISEB exams without requiring printing/ preparing of resources.
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    Algorithm is allows chidlren to work at their pace/ level without teacher setting one level; Teachers are able to set appropriate level tasks for children on individual basis
  • Significantly provides school data
    Used to write reports on how well their homework assignments are; how they are fairing preparing for their ISEBs and beyond; what topics to consolidate and review further; where children are being complacent and where they are positioned
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    Allows me to review data and efficiently check pupil progress as all computerised. Allows me to prepare other resources and allocate my time effectively to other subjects where needed.

I love it for homework but I would remain cautious about online learning platforms as a 'replacement' for teachers. I worry it could make some people complacent. But, used properly, it is an excellent tool.

  • Slightly reduces attainment gap

Atom Learning is a fantastic platform for providing differentiated support to pupils. Questions are engaging and well presented. The support provided by the Atom Learning team is also excellent!

Mark Goldhawk found Atom Learning:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    The support videos provided within Atom Learning promote independent learning and allow the teacher to target their time more effectively in lessons. The automatic marking also allows teachers to spend more of their time planning for effective learning opportunities.
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    The adaptive algorithm ensures all pupils are challenged and provides instant feedback on the areas for improvement. This analysis of pupil attainment allows teacher to target specific topics of skills to reduce the attainment gap.
  • Significantly provides school data
    We use Atom Learning as part our ISEB preparation. The mock tests provide informative data on how our preparations are going and where further support is required.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Atom Learning is fully digital and resources are easily created and distrbuted through the platform. Pupils can access the learning activities and work at their own pace, on differentiated questions, allowing teachers to spend more time supporting and extending groups or individual pupils within the lesson.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    The support videos and worked through examples allow children to reflect and find out for themselves about how some questions can be solved. This is particularly valuable when setting homework tasks on Atom Learning. With the adaptive algorithm, or by manually selecting the questions, teachers can increase the difficulty of questions gradually to support with scaffolding within the lesson.

  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    The videos help reduce time planning lessons.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Children are engaged with online learning and if we use the algorithm it stretches every child according to their ability level.

I think it has adapted the reasoning in my school and improved the standard too.
