Perspective bridges that gap between what we are trying to achieve, and tracking accountability at a personal level, while keeping it simple.
The data is easy to access from the site, the files open quickly, and it is convenient to find the files all located together when I need them.
The support staff are dedicated and knowledgeable – very swift in their response to any request for support.
I could access all I wanted to, quickly.
Easy access and simple to understand data.
Information is so easy to find.
All very quick and straight forward especially sending the document via Perspective Lite. This is now so much easier!
Accurate, informative and concise, the reports provide evidence to governors of external monitoring the progress of the school.
With a click of a button I can see the teaching profile and all strengths and weaknesses. It’s quick and simple to monitor Observations across the school and keep everything up-to-date.
The beauty of Perspective, is that everything is stored centrally and so easy to access. It’s great with an iPad and means I can record Observations live in the system as I’m doing them
The bite sized questions are fantastic. I feel confident that I have covered all possible Ofsted questions. I have already recommended Perspective to several of my colleagues.
I am astonished at how well this platform supports teaching and learning (and amazed at how cheap it is).
Seriously, thanks, just sent a text to head saying how enthused and excited I am at getting this set up! (SAD I KNOW!!!)
Performance Management process involves every member of staff in a school, it’s critical to make sure that it is effective, but also straightforward. That is why we use Perspective.
Perspective enables me to quickly monitor progress and view any evidence that departments generate. We will use it to monitor the delivery of our Funding Agreement with the DfE.
Just started using the lesson observation facility… marvellous! So easy to use.
I can see this being a very useful tool and will save a lot of time when everyone in my team is able to use the system. The process evidences that it is a whole team approach to building the SEF
I think it is a great system and you have worked hard to update it so quick! I am going to find it very useful. thank you
Absolutely brilliant, very clear training and user friendly
Very useful information which will help in my role as admin officer together with other team members. Clear and concise and the site is easy to use and get around. Thank you.
Brilliant, easy, user friendly system
really useful software that supports our work clearly and makes evidencing our work and monitoring much clearer!
Super speedy support, leaving a humbly happy head teacher.
We love the way Perspective supports triangulation of evidence: lesson observations, work scrutiny, Performance Management, SIDP, and SEF.
Perspective has helped us streamline the performance management process and I would highly recommend it.
The observation module is proving so useful. Perspective has led to much more effective working, distributed leadership and concentration on the real issues – teaching and learning!
I’ve found Perspective to be really helpful. It saves valuable time and creates professional-looking documents.
I’m able to work on the SEF at home, in the office, or anywhere with WIFI. It’s easy to compile and you can upload your own documents to support your judgements.
I find the support line and live chat really friendly and helpful. It’ great to know I can get help straight away should I need it.
I like having the teaching standards on hand, and staff are beginning to add actions and evidence as they go along. Overall, it is very useful tool that saves us a lot of time.
The SEF is clearly structured around the most recent Ofsted framework and allows the School Improvement Plan to emerge logically from the outcomes of the SEF.
Getting up to speed entails a short and intuitive learning curve. In no time at all you’re creating a range of bespoke observation templates, writing up SMART performance objectives, and much more.
Our review process has run much more smoothly! With all documentation held in one place, we could access objectives from a variety of devices and the reminder emails were really helpful.
A key point for me is also being able to have an overview of a staff member’s performance at the touch of a button, and not having to complete an overview sheet after each observation.
Perspective has been very useful in streamlining the administration of our appraisal processes. We also found the SEF assessment questions really helpful, and were impressed with the report produced.
The Bite Sized Questions gave our SLT an ideal starting point for writing the SEF. They gave us a clear indication of where to shout about our strengths, and more importantly, where to focus our efforts.
Perspective only costs the equivalent of two days of our Senior Leadership time and therefore proves great value for money!
