Focus assessment on the Classroom. Don't get bogged down in tables or endless paper documents.
School assessment doesn't have to be taxing!
If you thought data visualisation involved a few static lines and blocks of colours, think again! At yorschool we love the latest web based visualisation, it makes school assessment data fun and intuitive, seriously, it's never looked so good!
As a headteacher, member of a subject leadership team or a class teacher, we appreciate you'll want to be able to report on the attainment of your pupils. For Ofsted, SLT meetings or parents evening, yorschool's built in reporting will work for your school.
We take security seriously. We only trust the highest security data centres to run yorschool. In addition, ALL pupil data is encrypted. We'll always talk to you about the steps we take, security is our priority for your school.
Why should your assessment software dictate your assessment method?
That is a question which is at the heart of our principles. Yorschool does not want to mould you to a predefined assessment method. Rather, if you're using a binary measure or a multi-point scale, Yorschool fits your assessment without levels.
"Finally we have school assessment software that can truly drive teaching and learning in the classroom"
"At our school we now have meaningful performance data from classroom assessment acquired using yorschool"
We allow you to:
Four steps to get started:
(don't worry, we'll help you along the way!)
We firmly believe that there is no point generating data if you don't want to then look at it.
yorschool® uses the latest web technologies that showcase data in an interactive (almost playful!) state. Why have static bar charts when at the command of your mouse you can filter and drill down into class and pupil data.
Allow yorschool® to help headteachers, SLT members, teachers and even parents when they visit visualise data from classroom assessment, making it meaningful!

We appreciate there are different approaches to security. Provision of a secure area to store and manage data as sensitive as pupils names, addresses and other confidential identifiers can ultimately be through a physical server hosted within the school grounds or through cloud based architecture.
With advances in technology and investment in infrastructure by key industry pillars such as Amazon, Microsoft and Google a primary consideration for a systems security is no longer having the ability to 'pull the plug' out. Rather, independently verifiable cloud services which carry an extensible compliance framework create a highly professional approach to security. This is one which is not affected by a school break in or local power cut.
As a company we demand a service that can be measured by the most up to date security standards but can also change to meet the latest regulatory standards. Our partner provides services under United Kingdom G-cloud OFFICIAL Accreditation. This rating benefits a broad range of UK Public Sector organisations, including Local and Regional Government, the NHS and some central Government bodies.
Yorschool infrastructure carries the following accreditation:
While we believe it is important to outline our approach to security, it's more important we give you specific details about how we would care for your data.
The following is a list of steps we take to secure all aspects of yorschool. These are steps we will NEVER compromise on.
The databases we use are located in secure data centres managed by Microsoft with strict levels of compliance. The following is a specific list of standards our infrastructure adheres to:
