    Any good Primary planning software?

    Can anyone recommend some Primary Curriculum Planning software? I have a school who wants to dump Curriculum Complete - they're finding it buggy and complicated. Another school uses the Interactive Planning tool off the DFES site but aren't exactly ecstatic about it. Abacus Evolve has been recommended, but it's only math.

    They want something that does lesson planning, but also ties in assessment per child. (I know, and world peace and a replacement to fossil fuels.)

    Cheers.

    Not heard of anything in any of my Primaries I'm afraid.

    The interactive Planning tool is definitely one to be avoided though.. Nightmare!

    Abacus Evolve is a maths scheme of work, that happens to have it's planning within a piece of software. However, it's quite limited, even compared Curriculum Complete. It won't, for example, let you work at home then upload back to the network. You're either home OR school. To do any transfer, you must export to word.
    I haven't seen anything that's like CC. Most people just use a bit of discipline with storing their plans in nested folders.

    Primary planning software

    Thanks, everybody. So there aren't any good ones hiding in the woodwork, then. Now, if someone would just replace target tracker......

    Target Tracker

    That's one of the reasons why I left the country!

    I have teachers who don't understand the idea that there are folders other than My Documents. I have to help them find things that are on their desktop.

    I used to put a shortcut in their my docs to the shared planning drive. Eventually SMT insisted that everyone kept their planning there in a similar folder structure.
