IRIS (‘it really is simple’) is a real-time online software system which enables schools to record, monitor, analyse and manage pupil behaviour. The system enables poor and good behaviour to be equally recorded and managed. And secure online access to IRIS data means that teachers, management, governors, parents, pupils and partners such as community support officers gain up-to-date reliable information on individuals.
One SEN school in Manchester has streamlined its staff’s working days by moving all incident logging and reporting to an online system. Birches Specialist Support Primary School in Didsbury have teamed up with Adaptsoft, whose IRIS Adapt platform has allowed them to modernise beyond logging incidents in bound books, which had involved a great deal of writing up by one member of staff.
