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
