Once you have logged into your account, you will be able to add your teaching staff to the portal.
To do this:
The account holder of your school is responsible for deleting any users from your school account who no longer teach at your school, as per the terms and conditions. This can be done via the 'Manage Users' tab.
Your curriculum map shows activities for each Key Stage. You are able to enter a maximum of two activities per half term for each year group. There is also a blank activity box in which you can enter any alternative activity that does not appear as an option:
Consider the order of your activities.
Activities are colour coded. These colours allow you to clearly see which activities come under the same activity area. Ensure your pupils are taught a broad range of activities by selecting from the different activity areas. For example:
When selecting games activities for KS2, view your school’s previous curriculum map to ensure pupils are offered different games activities throughout their school life.
In order to use the assessment tool, you will firstly need to create and enter your classes:
When clicking back on 'My Classes,' you will now be able to 'VIEW' the pupils in your class.
NB 1. You can upload an excel register to save time when adding your pupils. Download the CSV file template, insert your classes' first and last names and save the file as a .CSV file. Upload the file using the 'Choose file' button.
NB 2. Please note your assessment table and class lists will only appear once you have created your curriculum map.
Once you have added your classes and pupils, and created your curriculum map, you will be able to use your assessment table.
Use the assessment criteria to select a symbol for each pupil for that activity:
< is working towards the expected standard (indicates that a pupil will not always consistently demonstrate the criteria required)
= is working within the expected standard (indicates that a pupil demonstrates attainment of all of the criteria within the standard)
> is working beyond the expected standard (indicates that a pupil demonstrates in greater depth all of the criteria within the standard)
Each of your class sizes may vary in number. To ensure that you are able to print your assessment tables in full, you may need to adjust the scale when pressing print. If your assessment symbols do not appear on the printed version of your table, you may need to check the 'print background (colours & images)' checkbox when pressing print.
Once an activity has been completed on the assessment table, the symbol entered will also appear on a pupil's profile.
In addition, a statement will appear at the top of their profile, describing their performance overall. You are able to add additional text, images and videos to evidence pupils learning.
On the 1st of August, at the end of each academic year, all assessment tables, pupil profile pages and the curriculum map from the current academic year will automatically transfer into the 'Archive.' You are still able to view and print all of this information when you click 'View Archive' at the top of the 'My Classes' page and 'My Curriculum Map' pages.
Organising your classes for the next academic year:
Once the 1st of August has passed and all of the information from the previous year has been archived, you are then able to edit your class names to organise your pupils for the next academic year. The classes from the previous academic year will still appear in 'My Classes,' follow the steps below to edit this:

N.B. You are able to remove or add individual pupils who have left your school or joined for the new academic year.
