One of the problems with schools is the sharing of information.
Some of the information is available to staff members, some of the time.
In my role as a form tutor and a classroom teacher, one of my biggest frustrations was that I only had about 50% of the information about the child sat in front of me. I could easily access their academic grades, their attendance, and their behaviour record.
This didn’t help me to find out if a vulnerable child was receiving any mentoring.
It didn’t help me to find out if a student who was struggling reading exam questions was getting any extra help in English.
I had lost count of the amount of times I had meetings with parents and I couldn’t tell them if their child was attending booster sessions or extra-curricular activities.
On a wider school level, it wasn’t easy for SLT to collate statists about student uptake and statistics of extra-curricular activities and interventions. Heads of department didn’t have a coherent overview of booster and intervention sessions that their staff were working hard to deliver.
With this in mind, I started developing the ‘Student Tracker’.
