IRIS Adapt is not just a passive database. It has the ability to respond to a host of events and conditions on the system.
As well as keeping users informed, IRIS Adapt has a number of features designed to facilitate effective workflow for busy teachers.
Most other systems aimed at schools are built to do a specific job. IRIS Adapt is not only the Swiss Army Knife of pupil data management, but in most cases does the job better than the dedicated system
IRIS Adapt's built-in 'point and click' analysis tools allow school leaders to interrogate their data in depth. Start with an overview of the whole school then drill right down to track a single behaviour for a single child.
IRIS Adapt is used in a range of different settings, mainly in the specialist provision sector, where one size does not fit all. Users of IRIS Adapt include local authorities, specialist provision (SEND) schools, PRUs and a range of maintained and independent alternative provision.

The Manchester Secondary PRU is an established Pupil Referral Unit which operates as part of the wider City of Manchester Learning Partnership with Bridgelea Primary School. The secondary PRU operates over 6 core centres and 2 college centres across the city. Bridgelea Primary operates across two centres.
MSPRU uses IRIS to log pupil incidents and accidents/injuries to both staff and pupils. Previously, PRU leaders had found it difficult to track pupil behaviour across all the separate centres around the city. Working closely with school leaders we implemented bespoke data capture forms for both incidents and accidents. Each centre across the city has direct access to these forms and the associated data analysis. However, each centre has access only to its own staff and pupils' data. The PRU SLT however have access to all data across all centres. Centre leaders and SLT are kept informed via a range of bespoke alerts and notifications.
Bridgelea is the primary PRU, operating over two sites. In addition to monitoring behaviour and injuries, Bridgelea use IRIS to monitor Near Miss events.
We have implemented a bespoke Alternative Provision Management system for all secondary schools across the LA. This includes a facility for schools to log their use of reduced timetable and alternative provision. The system allows the LA access to live, detailed information on the use of each each intervention as well as detailed demographic information about the pupils concerned. The AP providers are able to enter details of their offer (type, cost, capacity etc) onto the system. Schools can browse details of all the AP offerings. Also included is a complete online Fair Access and Inclusion Panel referral system which will save huge amounts of time and wasted paper.
If you are an LA, please contact us for more details of this type of setup, which can easily be configured to monitor accidents or CP concerns.

Whitfield Aspen School is a combination of a mainstream primary and a Specialist Resource Provision for pupils with an EHCP who have identified Profound, Severe and Complex Learning Needs (PSCN). There are some highly individualised features in the IRIS Adapt configuration which is specific to the school's needs:
Lexden Springs is a special school having both day and residential pupils. All pupils have an EHC plan. The school caters for pupils with special educational needs, specifically severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties and autism spectrum disorder. As well as providing bespoke systems for logging pupil accidents and incidents in school, we have also created custom logs for the residential staff to record pupil activities morning and evening. IRIS Adapt's refined access control allows both teaching staff and residential staff access to all relevant information regarding children in their care. Residential staff can be alerted to incidents which may happen in school and have access to all the details. Similarly, school staff can review the AM and PM logs for their pupil before the school day begins. The result is seamless and effective communication between all staff, school and residential.
