This week has been action packed and very interesting, so I thought I’d share the experience with our social media friends.


A success story

Our very own Laura recently achieved 3 NVQs after completing her apprenticeship here at OTrack HQ. We’re extremely proud of Laura’s achievements, and thought we’d share it with the OTrack community! Here are Laura’s words about her journey so far.


Kuwait English School (KES) is a large English Curriculum School based in Salmiya, Kuwait. They have approximately 1500 children in the Primary Department from KG to Year 6. The following has been written by Helen Searle who is the Headteacher of Preparatory Department and Infants at KES.


This is a romantic story about Sharon Wood and her long-term relationship with OTrack and achieving simple tracking of pupil assessments.

Early nights, nights out with friends, nights snuggled up on the sofa watching TV. And all because OTrack did the work for me!

Parklands Primary School have been an OTrack user since the Summer of 2012. Following their recent Outstanding Ofsted rating, we were keen to speak to them about how they have been tackling assessment with OTrack in recent years.



We have been working closely with Learn Academies Trust (Learn-AT) for the best part of an academic year now. We had a simple mission: develop an assessment model suitable to implement Trust-wide. Like most Trusts, Learn-AT knew it wouldn’t be so simple, but they knew it would be essential to ensure they provided the best solutions for all stakeholders involved.


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”

Michelle Bishton at Newdale Primary School kindly took the time to give us some feedback on the service we provide. The school have used OTrack for assessment tracking for two years now and this is their story:

We are delighted that this year we have one of the best data sets we have ever had across school. I’m in no doubt the fact that we use OTrack had a huge impact in this.

As a ‘double RI’ school and ‘coasting’, we were concerned about another Ofsted inspection due in spring 2016, so we worked with OTrack and used Focus Assessment papers to introduce and track without levels. We received customised reports to our exacting and specific needs. This allowed us to turn our school around and become rated as ‘Good’ for Ofsted.
