What is Epraise?
Epraise is designed to do three things; motivate students, engage parents and save teachers time. Epraise is the learning engagement platform at the heart of hundreds of school communities around the world.
A decade ago, our platform started out as a school rewards system, and though it is much more now, recognising achievement continues to be at its core. Since its humble beginnings, Epraise has aided in the digital transformation of schools, with features such as points, badges, leaderboards, certificates, activities, rewards, donations, assessment, homework, classwork, cover work, parents' evenings, messaging, interventions and seating plans. We consider ourselves highly privileged to work with such a talented group of schools that are inspiring the young minds of today.

We are accountable for what we spend as it’s public money, we have to ensure that it has an impact on students and staff in a positive way. Epraise has enabled us to share and communicate learning Activities during a world wide pandemic without causing stress or worry for our students and our staff. Students ask questions and seek clarification on what they’ve completed so far, we can provide bespoke and developmental feedback to support their learning and their development. Staff members have feedback to me to share how easy it has been to set weekly lesson activities. During a school year, epraise allows us to monitor student achievements and celebrate those constantly with parents. It links seamlessly to SIMs, the developers and epraise team have been phenomenal to work with, when we are stuck, when we make suggestions they listen and they look at solutions. Fantastic product and service!

The classroom experience is enhanced with seating plans, countdown timers, group selections, live reward celebration and the overall competitive aspect of the scoreboards, not only with students but the staff each week checking on their placing! Offering a tangible reward for the student endeavours has far more impact than a traditional certificate or badge. They own something they have earned from their learning.
Tom Bollan found Epraise:
- Moderately improves behaviour or wellbeing“Improved tutor/teacher coaching when reflecting on rewards or demerits. Easy to identify areas to focus on and for teacher, student and parent to see immediate outcomes”
- Moderately reduces teacher workload“Homework setting, tracking and resource pooling makes the whole process of learning beyond the classroom far easier to manage across the school, not just in each classroom. It includes parents which has had a significant factor in our home-school relationships. Messenger has also further aided this with instant communication reducing the workload of admin staff. The ability to message entire classes, year groups or all parents has reduced the need for costly external texting services.”

The customer service is faultless and they are always willing to go above and beyond. They take any suggestions from children, staff and parents about how to improve and it has really helped create a positive and caring ethos where parents can feel more involved in their children's life at school.
