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.

I use Firefly for everything: teaching, testing, marking, informing parents, reporting, the school calendar, timetable and planning. The only paperwork I carry around is a small diary!

The system is simple to use so the teacher can concentrate on pedagogy and the support Firefly offer if you have any queries is excellent.

Reply from Firefly Learning:Thank you, James. We are happy to hear of the impact Firefly is having at Skipton Girls' High School.
James Hoyle found Firefly Learning:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Collaborative curriculum planning, collection of homework, self-marking quizzing, reduced time photocopying.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Online resources accessible to pupils anywhere, anytime
  • Significantly improves school processes
    We use Firefly to keep parents informed about pupil progress and we can also use it to aid processes such as Year 7 and 12 enrollment.
  • Moderately improves parent engagement
    Where parents choose to they can keep informed about homework that has been set and any achievement or behaviour points that have been accumulated.
  • Moderately improves attainment
    When Firefly is used effectively it has the potential to aid improved attainment through improved parent/school partnerships, access to higher quality resources for students, enhanced learning activities and better diagnostic data for the teacher.
