What is Firefly Learning?
Firefly is the secure, collaborative platform for schools. Simplifying school communications, lesson management and progress tracking, Firefly engages the whole school community and ensures that everyone can keep learning, whatever the circumstances.
Used by primary and secondary state, independent and international schools worldwide, Firefly enables schools to upload, create and share content with other teachers and students, set homework / coursework tasks and mark online.
The Firefly Parent Portal enables schools to communicate everything with parents, including progress reports, student timetables and teachers assessments
Firefly is incredibly easy to use, simply drag content onto a page or into a task, with quick adoption across the school, and reduced time and costs for training. You can choose from the Firefly LMS, Firefly Parent Portal or the Firefly on Teams product which supports learners more effectively on Microsoft Teams.
