It’s a great opportunity to clean your data, so IRIS Ed:gen works to a timeframe that’s convenient for you and your team. 

Time for centralised data? Certainly. 

What are the benefits of having all school data in one place?

Unlike some other MISs, IRIS Ed:gen is a centralised system which streamlines all data around school management, to house it in one easy-to-access place. With quick access to data that works together, you’re able to save time by only entering data into one system. Plus, you can save money by eliminating the need for multiple software licenses you might have for safeguarding, lunch payments, parents evening etc.

Will I need to invest in other school management tools and platforms?

The scope of IRIS Ed:gen exceeds any other system. It has standard apps, including powerful assessment tools like advanced admissions portals and admissions management, workflow driven safeguarding, and powerful rewards and conduct features.

Can I share data across the whole trust?

As IRIS Central gives your trust the ability to create centralised assessment templates, policies, and behaviour strategies, you’re able to share them across all academies in the group.

Offering a consistent, streamlined view across the trust is not only simpler and more accurate, but it will also save the trust’s central team hours of time by removing the need for manual processes to create a trust-wide view. It empowers trust staff to quickly see trends in real-time at trust level, school level, and even drill down into data at pupil level.

With dashboards for attendance, admissions, assessment and safeguarding, as well as HR and staff absence, nothing is left behind and decisions are made based on quality, up-to-date data.

Will IRIS Ed:gen scale as my trust grows?

Whatever the future of your trust, you can rest assured that IRIS Ed:gen will grow with you, your group, and any new academies that join your trust.

Could a new MIS change the outcome of an Ofsted visit?

A successful Ofsted report comes down to having accurate, real-time data at your fingertips. With the right data and information from IRIS Ed:gen, you’re able to make the best judgements and decisions for pupils to improve their outcomes. So you can make an impactful difference throughout the whole school year, which Ofsted inspectors will be able to see.

How? With IRIS Ed:gen, your inspectors can have your data at their fingertips too. You’re able to provide them with their own restricted IRIS Ed:gen login, so they only see the data they need to. With easy access to your MIS data, inspectors are able to assess your school efficiently and fairly, with a view of exactly how you’ve made a positive impact on pupils.

Although an MIS alone can’t improve an Ofsted evaluation, it allows you to provide the data to back up the decisions you are making, spot interventions and make improvements.

IRIS Ed:gen allows data to be captured and shared in a user-friendly way, meaning it can be actioned quickly to give your SLT, teachers and admin staff the confidence and clarity they need to drive your school or trust forward. 

Time for smarter pupil & staff outcomes? 100%.

Can IRIS Ed:gen help our pupils?

Improving pupil outcomes is at the heart of every school, and at the heart of IRIS Ed:gen. As a centralised, streamlined system that uses real-time data, you’re able to gain better insight, act more quickly, and create smarter outcomes for pupils. Being able to spot trends and act on them promptly can make a huge difference to the outcome of your students.

Can it make life easier for staff and improve our retention rate?

Technology, and particularly your school’s MIS, need to cater to digital-savvy minds as the need for more young professionals to join the education sector grows.

The digital-first generation expect to see and are seeking out schools using intuitive, cloud-based, accessible, speedy technology like IRIS Ed:gen, just as much as schools who cater to their wellbeing. 

Does IRIS Ed:gen drive pupil attainment outcomes?

IRIS Ed:gen can be pivotal in helping pupils reach their full potential.

It’s quick and easy to enter data right there and then across the system to record results, information and any statutory data – giving you richer data than you could ever get from Excel!

Using a combination of traditional reporting tools and live data dashboards, it brings all pupil data together in one place.

These reports are accessible by role and span the breadth of data in the system, so teaching staff and leaders have the insight to make informed decisions and interventions. It is vital for an MIS that can truly help pupil outcomes.

This is something IRIS is extremely passionate about and will be at the heart of future product developments.

Time for improved processes? Of course.

Can IRIS Ed:gen improve our processes?

With less third parties involved, and less time spent transferring data to different systems, processes are streamlined.

Data only needs to be entered once, whilst reports are available at the click of a button to help you quickly spot and tackle trends. Plus, safeguarding and exam tools are simplified, and text-to-speech capabilities speed up data entry. Rest assured, IRIS Ed:gen can improve the way your whole school works.

Will IRIS Ed:gen improve the information we can share with governors and trustees?

Keeping key stakeholders such as governors or trustees informed and engaged in the school or trust is important, but often time consuming. IRIS Ed:gen has specific resources at both school and trust level to allow governors and trustees to get up-to-date information.

At school level, built-in reporting packs, and even role-based access for governors to stay informed at their own speed, are available. And for MATs, trustees can log into IRIS Central and view rich, collective information across the whole trust, right down to a single student level.
