    SchoolIP and other Performance Management software (Not MIS)

    My governor school is about to trial SchoolIP and I wondered if anyone had any experience of this system, either from a technical standpoint or from an end-user point of view. Costing, support, anything.

    And does anyone know of or have experience of any other Performance Management systems? I would be grateful for any information- I queried the fact that the school were only looking at one system and they landed me with looking at other systems!

    I hear this mentioned a lot at our place. If you need any specifics, let me know, and I'll try to find out.

    Anyone else? Even just knowing which system your school uses, even if you know nothing about it, would help

    (I landed myself in this by commenting that it isn't good practice to just look at one provider...must learn to shut up )

    I know of two school's who use Performance Management, CPD, Lesson Observation and School Improvement for schools and the education sector.

    Staff hate it, but I think that is more to do with the fact that they need to document things, rather than hating the website itself.

    We use Bluesky - www.blueskyeducation.co.uk at my school. It does all the stuff you mention but I can't really comment on how good it is as it has been used almost exclusively by teaching staff. Until now that is, as all associate staff will be using it soon :-/

    I've dropped you a PM but interesting to know if it's a primary or secondary.

    We are also using bluesky education. Being used by teaching staff at the moment for record PM, CPD, and lesson observations. I was originally involved with the implementation of it alongside the asst head, and doing training sessions to teachers about 2 years ago. However, I am not involved with it anymore as I'm too busy doing my netman job.

    PM me if you would like to know anymore and I'll try my best to get you some info.

    Hi witch - sorry for the late response, I've only just joined the form. I hope you found what you were looking for and did finally use SchooliP. I would agree with the previous post about evaluating all your options. At SchooliP we're very happy to be compared against other systems, because the feedback we get is that we offer the most advanced levels of integration between the modules of school evaluation, improvement planning and performance management. That's because it was developed that way from inception, with the input of senior school leaders. Other systems have 'bolted on' modules over time. You can find the views of some users at www.schoolip.co.uk/videos. Do feel free to PM me if you would like any more information.
