WHAT IS SISRA OBSERVE?

Observe is a bespoke system that supports your CPD processes – from recording and analysing all types of observations and learning walks, to identifying individual CPD needs and self-reflection. Designed for Primary, Secondary and All-through schools, Observe provides an up-to-date picture of teaching and learning, benefitting all members of staff.

The reports dashboard makes analysis quick and simple, allowing you to easily identify areas of weakness and focus on improving teaching and learning.

BESPOKE SERVICE

Observe supports any approach to quality assurance, meaning you can:

  • Define your own outcomes
  • Create your own templates
  • Create your own fields to capture relevant information according to your own requirements
OBSERVE WITH OR WITHOUT GRADES

ATTACH AND SHARE EVIDENCE AND RESOURCES

Our resources library allows you to attach evidence and resources to a particular focus area giving everyone in school access to a library of best practice.

REFLECTIONS

Teachers can add their own reflections and be part of a developmental, helpful process to improve their own practice.
