Managing Learning Outcomes
Flexible Outcomes for Linear and Spiky Progress
Learning Outcomes form a tree structure with the school as the trunk. The structure is not tied to a particular learning model but can equally be applied to linear or cumulative progression or spiky profiles.

Creating and Importing Outcomes
These are instructions for importing Learning Outcomes from a spreadsheet. Learning Outcomes can be Imported into v20 from your spreadsheet or created from within v20. Outcomes may be available to the school or specific to a pupil (i.e. Personalised Outcomes, e.g. ECHPs).

Behaviour & Safeguarding (Form Builder)
Importing Attainment Data
Here are just some of the benefits that come with OnwardsandUpwards v20:
- Totally New User Interface
- It’s now very easy and quick for you and your colleagues to use and because it’s intuitive it needs virtually no training. Exactly the same interface runs just as easily on any tablet, laptop or desktop.
- Totally Flexible Learning Outcomes
- You can record your pupils’ learning outcomes any way you choose, whether that is the more traditional way of linear progression through stages, spikey profiles, personalised or just measure attainment wherever it occurs or mix everything.
- Pupils can have their own personalised learning outcomes which are added, recorded and analysed in the same way as global learning outcomes and can be included in pupil reports.
- Updated Learning Outcome Library
- This is already embedded in the system for you so you can select and request learning outcomes that have already been developed by our ever-growing community of UK special schools. Alternatively, you can add or augment your own learning outcomes to track progress holistically. You are not restricted to just academic progress, you can also track social, emotional, behavioural, soft skills, independence or whatever is important to you and your learners.
- Totally Flexible Target Setting
- You can set single or multiple targets at any point in your learning structure be that short or long-term or both at the same time.
- Attach Learning Evidence Anywhere
- You can record evidence at any point in a pupil’s learning journey, e.g. a specific learning outcome statement, folder, subject, strand or just store it in the system to be evaluated for possible assignment later.
- Get Dynamic Analysis
- You can run powerful and highly visual reports on the fly such as graphs, charts, tables. You can then sort and edit right there on screen to get immediate answers to anything you want. Once you see what you want you can then instantly export to pdf or Excel. Additional analysis capability is available for free. Whatever you can imagine - just ask.
- Advanced Security
- This means that you can grant access permissions and privileges on an individual and/or group basis to only those areas of the system a user is allowed to see. We have also introduced optional two factor authorisation.
- Easy Online Editing
- There is no longer any need to export, edit and re-import. Just edit your outcomes, targets and pupils right there on screen and watch the system make live changes.
- Machine Learning
- The system now anticipates frequent requests which means the more you and your colleagues use it the faster it responds by having the data ready before you ask for it.
- Behaviour & Safeguarding
- v20 includes Behaviour Management and Safeguarding via our Forms module. The data can be shared securely, analysed and reported. You can include any type of form whether it be for pupils or staff.
