"One of the things we love most… is that it is our system and we've been able to make it bespoke to what we want"

John Chilton School

I researched a lot of different assessment systems being produced commercially and by individual schools when the Assessment without Levels directive was given.

I met with lots of assessment leaders who were using a combinations of systems for the different areas and felt that none of these were going to meet our needs. We wanted an assessment system that would allow us to track progress for the wide range of need in the school.

OnwardsandUpwards has allowed us to track breadth and depth of learning, which allows us to recognise realistic progress. Progress is measured in all curriculum areas as well as areas of the EHCPs. The stages of attainment are hierarchical and can be personalised to the school’s holistic curriculum. Within each statement of attainment are levels of involvement and learning, so that the depth of an individual pupil’s learning can be measured. We have also developed a new section to meet the recommendations of the Rochford Review. We can identify the Seven Aspects of Engagement through appropriate statements and track a pupil’s progress through their school career.

The system allows us to take “snapshots” of a pupil’s progress to their target as often as we feel necessary, this is then demonstrated in a series of reports and graphs/charts that are simple to read and interpret, enabling the school to provide interventions where appropriate immediately. For teachers the system is simple to use and accessible from anywhere with internet access; speed and ease are very important to us to ensure that a teacher’s workload is not extensive. The support team at Escendency are very supportive and always respond quickly and professionally - guiding through changes and giving confidence.

I liaise with many schools and still think it is the best system out there when I look around
