End of Year Analysis Service

Last year, we launched a new service to schools throughout England and Wales – a simple way to get end of year analysis in an easy-to-read PDF pack.

Within the first 12 hours of release, we had over 200 schools order and use it.

This new service enables you to easily analyse your test data using Test Raw Scores, Test Outcome Assessment Codes and Teacher Assessments for EYFS, KS1 and KS2.


What is Point-In-Time Assessment?

We’ve noticed that the vast majority of schools who are changing their tracking methods, are moving away from linear tracking to a Point-In-Time Assessment (PITA) solution.

Schools and MATs have told us that the PITA model fits perfectly with the philosophy of the current curriculum.

Read on to learn how this can help improve your school.


Blueprint for a Tracking System

Renowned education data blogger, James Pembroke, released a blog on 20th February 2017 entitled ‘Blueprint for a tracking system’. This is a ‘go to’ article for schools that are considering purchasing a tracking system, or reviewing the one they have. In the blog, James lists seven capabilities, which all tracking systems should make available to schools.


Support as important as the software

Recently I’ve been doing some work for a school that’s very close to my heart as all four (yes four!) of my kids having attended there. I was doing a bit of analysis of our users to identify schools that hadn’t yet engaged with OTrack’s assessing without levels features.

Parkwood came up as one of those schools and, having known Jackie Mell and Helen Butler for a few years, I thought I’d give them a call to offer some support.

“Brilliant understanding of the needs of our own individual data. Feel that support has been given to really make our tracking individual and covers the needs of our academy”

Helen Butler, Assessment Co-ordinator Oasis Academy Parkwood, Scunthorpe


Collating Data for Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs)

Here at OTrack we believe that our software should give you the time to have those meaningful conversations – and time to put plans in place to improve the lives of young people.
If you’re spending hours pulling data together from different academies and having to use a calculator, then we can help.

“People were tracking their data in different ways, now – thanks to OTrack – we get ca get analysis for all different contextual groups at the click of a button”

Glyn Bishop, Senior School Improvement Officer at Waterton Academy Trust

See how it works

Many schools, one central point

It is possible to bring together data from all your academies, even if they are using different tracking models and theories. Many of our MATs however prefer to use the same methodology across the board, giving full consistency to their reporting.

We build OTrack around you

Regardless of how you track in your academies – we can easily configure OTrack to meet your exact needs. We’ll consult with you about how you want to analyse performance against age related expectations and expected progress. Our dedicated report development team will ensure that you never use spreadsheets and calculators again.

“The Maltby Academy Trust customised reports are so useful for identifying year groups and other contextual groups that may need more support, they also give me and schools senior management essential analysis for reporting to governors and to the trust”.

David Horrigan – Executive Principal at Maltby Learning Trust

Introducing the MAT Dashboard

Our brand-new MAT Dashboard is now being used across many MATs and enables trust executives to quickly analyse data from one academy to another. The filters allow easy access to year groups and contextual groups to facilitate the sharing of best practice at the touch of a button.

Customised Pupil Tracking for Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs)

Customising how schools record and analyse tracking data is what OTrack is all about – we’ve been doing this for over 10 years now. It was a great and very rewarding challenge to extend that service when we introduced our consultancy services for MAT leaders.

“It’s something that meets our needs and will continue to develop as our needs develop”

Dave Dickinson, CEO at Waterton Academy Trust


Free OTrack Webinar – Introducing OTrack

Due to high demand and the success of our free webinars, we now have another session running on Thursday 14th September at 10am.

In this session, we will be showing you how to make pupil tracking easy in a life after levels.

OTrack is an online pupil tracking system that simplifies the tracking of attainment and progress of your pupils.


Transfer Anytime

We will set up your OTrack account for you, and transfer all your current data – at any time of the year.

Recently we’ve had many conversations with schools who are interested in using OTrack, but they were worried about moving between tracking systems midway through the academic year.

This isn’t a problem with OTrack, we have a dedicated team to help you move from your current tracking system to OTrack. This means you don’t need to worry – we will take care of the entire process.

If you use Word, Excel, paper or another commercial tracking provider – we don’t mind! We have 10 years of experience in helping schools seamlessly move tracking systems.

Here’s what some schools have said about the service we provide:

“OTrack moved my data from our previous tracking system – the whole process, from ordering OTrack to having the data transferred from SIMs, took just a few days. The actual data transfer was effected in under 30 minutesWe were up and running straight away!”

Jill Lambert, All Saint’s CE Federation

“We used a different commercial tracking tracking system before we moved to OTrack. The data transfer from our old system to OTrack was quick and easy. OTrack dealt with all of this and kept us up to speed with regular updates. The staff are extremely helpful and are always on hand to answer any questions.”

Nina Rushby, Tranmoor Primary School

It’s simple

We will move your data into OTrack in 3 simple steps:

  1. Tell us where your current data is stored
  2. We will start the data transfer process
  3. We’ll contact you when OTrack is fully populated with your data

Tracking the British Curriculum in the Middle East

In November, I had another opportunity to go out to Dubai. The main purpose was to attend The Digital Education Show Middle East, hosted by Terrapinn at The Conrad hotel. We were successful in showing schools how we make tracking the British Curriculum in the Middle East easy.
