The BlueSky Impact
Updating our model for whole school teaching and learning
Barnby Road Academy
"Staff have really bought into BlueSky and are now using it to log their own development.
"Before deciding on BlueSky as our new model, we conducted a survey of staff attitudes and it was clear everyone was ready for change. Ensuring that staff would use the new system was essential and thanks to the strength of the support we received from BlueSky, including training and unlimited use of the BlueSky helpline, this need has definitely been met".
Providing Teach First with a powerful facility for tracking and supporting participant progress
Allowing objective discussion, formative dialogue and rapid intervention.
"BlueSky is a key tool that is helping us to make a real difference to the quality of our programme and ensuring our teachers are the best that they can be for their pupils" Helen Gooch, Curriculum Design Project Manager at Teach First

"We can provide feedback very quickly after lesson observations," Andrew commented. "Whereas in the past I would have been entering data into spreadsheets and then making comparisons, the system does it all and the Head of Department can discuss the evidence with the member of staff almost immediately."
BlueSky streamlines the coaching and appraisals process at Primary multi-academy trust
The Portswood Primary Academy Trust
"We have definitely seen that the quality of reflection has improved and the quality and value of our appraisal interviews has risen significantly. It was always good, but has definitely got better. Teachers are switched on and the process is more on-going. Joint practice development would not have such a high profile throughout the Trust without BlueSky".
