With over a decade of experience in working across a range of education systems in the UK, Iceland, Sweden, Germany, Italy and Switzerland, InfoMentor is well-versed in supporting schools through periods of change with tools for planning, assessing, tracking and reporting to aid school improvement.
The changes in the UK to the curriculum and assessment policies have posed many challenges for teachers, particularly regarding the foundation subjects. To help relieve some of the burden from schools, award-winning InfoMentor has updated its software to offer a range of ready-to-use assessment frameworks including the NAHT model and Michael Tidd's Key Objectives and formative assessment grids.
The NAHT assessment framework was produced by a team of assessment experts and senior teachers responsible for curriculum delivery and assessment in primary schools across England.
To support schools that have developed their own formative assessment models, InfoMentor also enables schools to create their own templates, putting them in control of how they assess against the new curriculum using the software. As Jo Grail, Education Consultant at Aspirations Academy Trust commented: "Using our own templates enabled us to break down the programmes of study so that teachers in each year group are clear about what they have to teach in order to ensure progression across the Key Stage."
InfoMentor is unique in that it also includes a planning module for teachers to plan lessons and upload teaching materials and for head teachers to audit curriculum coverage. This feature is praised for helping to reduce the time spent on manually planning lessons and as Ryan Morgan, Senior Leader, Trelewis Primary commented: " InfoMentor has cut lesson planning time by 50% and contributed to overall school improvement.”
