What is IRIS Adapt?

IRIS Adapt is a unique pupil information management tool, providing in-depth analysis on pupil incidents, interventions, accidents and more with one powerful tracking system. IRIS Adapt allows schools to record and analyse any incident data you need - and, unlike other systems with only limited customisation, each data capture screen is fully customised to your requirements - using your own familiar language, layout and workflow. Tailored email and text notifications will keep all your staff informed and involved. Full version monitoring and fine-grained access control ensure that all your information remains secure and confidential.

IRIS Adapt is used in a range of different settings, mainly in the specialist provision sector, where one size does not fit all. Users of IRIS Adapt include local authorities, specialist provision (SEND) schools, PRUs and a range of maintained and independent alternative provision as well as mainstream primary.


Recommended Usage

To get the best out of the workflow and analysis features, events should be entered onto the system as close to the time they happened as is practical.

Iris adapt has been a really useful tool and has most definitely brought value to our offer. I am keen to see what additional developments are on the horizon, especially around analysing a presenting data to wider audiences.

Reply from IRIS Adapt:Hi Stu, thanks for the review. The development we are working on at the moment is a user dashboard. Amongst other things, you will be able to click a notification and be taken directly to the record that the notification refers to.
Stu Lambert found IRIS Adapt:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Previously the use of paper incident forms meant that staff were having to hand write forms and pass them to line managers for review. These forms went back and forwards until they were filed by admin. Having on online portal that retains all of this information and allows collaboration and easy analysis, reduces the cognitive load.
  • Significantly provides school data
    Within a Special School setting it is important to have the data around dysregulation to consider trends and themes. This allows us to adapt strategies and respond with interventions or changes to provision. Following these adaptations we can then go back to the data and consider how effective these changes were.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    By analysing learner level and school level data we can consider certain CPD for staff. Data from IRIS will also shape a learners PLP.
  • Slightly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Iris doesn't so much directly impact on behaviour but it provides us with a tool that enables us to unpick behaviour and dynamically react to themes and trends.

IRIS has been well embedded across our school and is user friendly. The staff who work for IRIS are easily contactable and are very willing to support and improve our forms. You can guarantee a prompt response when wanting customise the forms on IRIS to suit our schools' needs. Our reporting system has improved dramatically since using IRIS Adapt! I would highly recommend to other schools. For future improvements, I would like to possibly see an app being developed for IRIS so that it is more user friendly on a tablet device. I would also like to see a function where you can select multiple records to print at any one time. Thank you :)

Reply from IRIS Adapt:Hi Michelle, thank you so much for taking the time to do such a detailed review. it is much appreciated.
Michelle Bull found IRIS Adapt:
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    Although it doesn't necessarily reduce teacher workload for the staff, it is a much more efficient system to use that our previous paper based records.
  • Significantly provides school data
    IRIS adapt allows us to report to School Governors of incidents, relating to specific behaviours. We track progress through IRIS adapt, identifying decrease in behaviour incidents for individuals, classes and groups. The data allows for us to see trends and put interventions in place.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    Everything is digital and easily accessible. It is individual to our school. IRIS Adapt is well embedded across the school and is part of our everyday routines and procedures. Everything is in one place making it user friendly, including behaviour logs, significant information, CPD, accident/ injury, parent contact etc.
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Behaviour is recorded, tracked and monitored through IRIS. Trends and triggers can be analysed which informs our Risk Reduction Plans to support individual students. Interventions and further support/ provision can be put into place to support our young learners. In turn, we see reductions in behaviours.

It is proving to be an excellent system that meets our needs really well, and has transformed the way we can look at and use data. The team has been exceptional in supporting us to set it up, and has been creative and innovative in finding bespoke solutions to our specific data needs.

Reply from IRIS Adapt:Hi Sarah, thanks for the review. It took a bit of discussion and trial and error to get the system exactly how you want it, but I'm pleased it's working well for you now.
Sarah McKay found IRIS Adapt:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Efficient recording of behaviour incidents reduces time demands on teachers. The ability to analyse patterns in behaviour enables us to put supports in place effectively and minimises the impact across the day. We are also able to share therapy reports easily and key information about students is available instantly and in one place, which streamlines all our processes.
  • Significantly provides school data
    In whole school briefings at the end of each day we are able to look at any incidents that have happened and immediately put a plan in place where necessary. Over the longer term we are able to track patterns in behaviours and more effectively identify triggers. From a therapy perspective, we are able to monitor the supports we provide to students to ensure we are providing an equitable service.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    Recording of information is quick and easy, and we can easily view information about a particular student and track any patterns or concerns. Information sharing between staff is much clearer. We are able to record Therapy notes efficiently thanks to the bespoke pages that the team developed for us.
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    We can record the provisions being provided to each student (e.g. wellbeing sessions, mentoring, art therapy, Speech and Language, Occupational therapy) and can easily view which students are receiving which therapies at a given time. This, coupled with the detailed behaviour analysis, helps us to ensure that students are receiving the right support at the right time.

The tech team are brilliant, the software is adaptable and bespoke to every school. Ed and Seb are brilliant. I have introduced IRIS into my last 3 schools. i have never met a staff member who does not like it- or wants to go back to (my concern, excel tracking, paper based logging etc)

Jane found IRIS Adapt:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    TAs & teachers no longer need to look for hard copies of accident, incident, behaviour books. Teachers can record and leadership can track easily.
  • Significantly provides school data
    The software is so easy to use and it helps the leadership team monitor so much, yet so easily! H&S, Safeguarding, Near misses, Accidents, Behaviour, Pupil Progress and so much more all in one place. Pupil premium is now effectively reviewed and headteacher governor reports are so easy to pull together.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    No more excuses! All staff have access to a PC- so everyone is held to account when it comes to recording essential information. It is easy to use so even the most tech phobic staff get on board (eventually!)
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    The data is so easy to draw on- we can easily identify key pupils, trends in lessons/times of day. This helps us plan / staff better and also address quality of teaching and care at these times of day. The data directly leads our decisions on CPD and SDP

The system is incredibly easy to use in terms of data input and the ability to create reports at individual, class or whole school level. Report can be created in minutes, with clear and easy to understand graphs and tables. Our initial system was built bespoke for us to need our unique needs as a school and is full customisable, only requiring an email request and this is completed in a matter of minutes. Other professionals have commented on how useful and informative the information we are able to pull of the system is in supporting transitions to next phase, or supporting safe prescribing inline with the STAMP initiative. This system has revolutionised the amount of time I as a Behaviour lead spend on analysing and interpreting behaviour data in order to create reports for a range of audiences including Ofsted. IRISAdapt is incredibly good value for money and I would highly recommend this product without reservation.

Dave Jones found IRIS Adapt:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    quicker to complete incident reports
  • Significantly provides school data
    Incredibly easy to pull off data for reports for individual and whole school trends and patterns in respect of behaviour, physical intervention and seclusion use
  • Significantly improves school processes
    All behaviour reports are read and signed off by a senior leader. This process allow us to identify CPD needs, follow up incidents with staff teams and use the data we gather to share with other professionals to support safe prescribing
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    By being able to clearly identify antecedents /triggers for incidents of challenging behaviour we are able to design support plans to help staff and pupils manage these situations while teaching the skills needed to reduce the need for the behaviours or alter the environment, scheduling or presentation of demands. the clear recording of physical interventions and seclusion have ensured that staff understand that they need to be able to demonstrate a clear rationale for using these approaches, and that these will be challenged when required by senior leaders. The introduction of the seclusion tab has resulted in a more transparent system for when isolating a child for any period of time and has supported a change in practice across the the school resulting in a significant reduction in the use of this strategy

  • Significantly improves school processes
    Groups are better organised. Qualifications are recorded so that tutors know which part of the scheme of work is required by each individual student.
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing

Used IRIS Adapt for 4 years

Jun 2020

IRIS is a very useful tool for me in my role of leading on behaviour across a mainstream school and in a Resource Provision. It provides useful insights that are clearly presented at the click of a couple of buttons. The representative that worked with me to set up IRIS for my school, and organise the tabs so that they were personalised and exactly what we needed, has provided ongoing support. He provided exceptional training to enable me to use the analysis tool effectively and is available via email should I have any further questions, which has been very useful and supportive.

Lisa found IRIS Adapt:
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    IRIS enables school leaders to effectively monitor behaviour across the school. It alerts leaders to patterns in behaviour that highlight when children need some additional support. The analysis tool can be used to look for patterns of behaviour, therefore assisting leaders in using the data to understand how best to support the child.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    IRIS is quick and easy to use. It can be set up exactly how to suit the school, so it will do exactly what school leaders feel will be most useful for their school. The analysis tool, which is significant in providing relevant and useful information around children's behaviour, is accessible and the relevant training is not onerous, which makes it even more useful!
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    IRIS provides useful graphs, charts and tables to provide teachers with relevant information. This information provides very useful information for Child Centred Plans and Annual Reviews for individual children. This information provides clarity around the behaviour and well-being of children in school and can be used to support leaders in wider discussions about behaviour across the school.

Honestly I'm not sure how we could have coped without it.
