From September 2018, you must publish information about the school’s careers programme. This information must relate to the delivery of careers guidance to year 8 to 13 pupils in accordance with Section 42A of the Education Act 1997. For the current academic year, you must include:

  • the name, email address and telephone number of the school’s Careers Leader

  • how the school measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme on pupils

Website update and LMS news

You might have noticed that we have tweaked the website a tiny bit over the last few days. This was to refresh the look of the site generally but also to prepare for something that we are quite excited about. We are soon to launch a Learning Management System (LMS) that will provide online CPD training materials for educators. These courses will cover a range of important issues in schools and provide CPD certificates once completed. Further details once courses become available!

Assessment update

Assessment data is automatically submitted to our server when students do an assessment test in each Primary Spelling module. Following a suggestion from one of our schools, we have now added the option for teachers to manually add assessment data when students do a paper assessment (from the teacher books) for Primary Spelling. Individual pupils can be entered or the whole class can be edited at once for word family assessments. This data is then used to generate student reports alongside any data from the on-line assessments.
