Can you really get a ‘bespoke’ Primary School assessment system for less than many off-the-shelf systems?

Yes you can! – with support from our Primary Progress toolkit.

Our system is flexible enough to allow schools to create their own assessment policy, and MAT managements to compare their schools’ progress and attainment.

Schools can:

pick their own subjects and curriculum statements/objectives (the toolkit can import these or provide a default set to edit).

agree their own assessment grades, which define pupils’ steps towards mastering the curriculum: we have schools who use 3 steps (e.g. emerging, expected, exceeding) 4 or 5 steps (e.g. below, towards, at expected, at greater depth), even 9 and 12 point numeric scales.

use a quick and easy way for teachers to record their assessments (the toolkit provides this).

set Age Related Expectations or Targets for each term/year (the toolkit has a simple way to set these).

analyse which pupils are making expected progress and which need support to get them on track (the toolkit provides multiple reports e.g statements achieved, subject attainment, combined subjects, ARE, individual pupil, whole school overview of attainment and progress, EYFS)

The MAT can get:

a dashboard giving access to all the individual school toolkits, together with overview reports which summarise results at MAT level and compare schools’ performance.

So, if you aren´t 100% satisfied with your current assessment tracking system, or if you have set up a system in Excel and are finding it time-consuming to maintain, why not check out our Online Primary Progress toolkit at

If you need more information, or would like to discuss your specific needs, please email me at

We can give you free access to a demo site, where you can try out the toolkit for yourself.
