A HIPPERHOLME man has developed an educational tool for tracking pupils.
Scott Parkin’s Early Esseence to Primary Essence data management system helps keep an on-line track on progress.
Carr Green Primary School, Rastrick, has trialled the system and head Lesley Bowyer said it saved time and enabled closer monitoring.
“The parents will love it and it will boost the learning journey,” she said.
Mr Parkin has always been interested in data and developed the tracking tool, which also reduces paper trials, with help from web developer Adam Mawson.
“Parents get 24 hour access to what their kids’ are up to,” he said. “The intelligent use of data has become central to the work of all professionals involved in education. It is my ambition to see more data smart schools delivering pupils progress.
“At any moment nursery providers, schools and parents have access to personalised relevant and current reports which profile a child’s progress against national, school and personalised aspriational targets.”
