Latest product news

Read on to find out more about the 'students on report' functionality that was released this month.

  • Students on report

This new functionality now supports the tracking of students that are on report. When a student is placed on report an icon on the register appears, enabling teachers to easily identify them. Teachers can add comments and record the student's behaviour during lessons. Behaviour leads can run reports on each student for monitoring or sharing with parents and staff.

Watch out for these new fields coming soon.

  • Proficiency in English fields

The DfE have added this data item to inform policy on EAL high needs groups, particularly as the current definition of EAL does not distinguish between pupils who lack a basic command of the English language, versus those who are bilingual and have mastered English sufficiently to access the curriculum. English language proficiency statistics would therefore provide for the first time, important national statistics on the characteristics of this group, along with their attainment and location.

  • Nationality fields

Recording student nationality is now crucial because the DfE have made this information compulsory in the next census. We will be creating a new nationality field with the nationalities defined by the DfE for this purpose. Where possible, we will be mapping your existing data to the new field. This new field should be checked and populated for each student before the next census is due on 6th October.

  • Need any help?

We've recently released a new version of Integris help. Take a look, it can now be accessed within the system.
